PERTH, July 28 AAP - Manly were in big trouble at 18-6 down at half-time of their crunch NRL clash with the New Zealand Warriors at Perth's Patersons Stadium on Saturday night.

The Warriors raced out to an 18-0 lead inside 32 minutes courtesy of tries to fullback Kevin Locke, scrumhalf Shaun Johnson and centre Lewis Brown.

But a sensational try to Manly winger Jorge Taufua on the half-time siren gave the reigning premiers hope of a revival.

Taufua ran on to a pin-point cross-field from Kieran Foran and beat two lunging tackles in a 50m sprint to the line to finally get the Sea Eagles on the board.

The first half produced a series of bruising tackles, with several players set to face nervous waits after delivering high tackles.

Manly centre Steve Matai was on to deliver a high hit, while Warriors substitute Sione Lousi produced a crunching sling tackle.

Warriors centre Konrad Hurrell was helped off the field after just 15 minutes with what appeared to be a serious ankle injury, while Manly captain Jason King was also forced off a minute later after coming off second best while attempting a tackle.
