NRL 2022: Adam Reynolds leads Brisbane Broncos' mauling of Manly Sea Eagles, Newcastle Knights edge Canterbury Bulldogs

  • 14/05/2022

Star off-season signing Adam Reynolds has continued his sparkling form to inspire Brisbane Broncos to a dominant 38-0 victory over Manly Sea Eagles on Friday night.

The No. 7 pulled all the right strings out a wet night at Suncorp Stadium, scoring a super individual try and setting up a host of others off his masterful boot, which also saw him perfect off the kicking tee.

Breakthrough wing Selwyn Cobbo ran riot for the Broncos with a hat-trick of tries, as the Broncos crossed six times to record a fourth consecutive win for the first time since 2017.

Corey Oates also shone on the opposite wing with a brace of tries, combining with Cobbo to register a staggering 455 running metres.

The win moves the Broncos up to sixth on the NRL ladder, while the Sea Eagles remain eighth.

In earlier action, Newcastle Knights broke their seven-game losing streak with a 16-6 win over Canterbury Bulldogs in the 'magic round' opener.

In a scrappy affair, the return of halfback Adam Clune proved the key for the Knights, as he clinched the victory with a solo try with just four minutes remaining.

The Knights enjoyed the majority of possession and territory but were unable to make the Bulldogs pay on the scoreboard, both sides struggling with errors in a scrappy contest.

The win lifts the Knights off the bottom of the ladder and consigns the Bulldogs back to the wooden spoon position.
