Eagles fly to victory

WELLINGTON - Geoff Toovey's Sea Eagles stand united, at least on the field.

That much was clear after they secured a hard-fought 22-12 win over the Warriors in Auckland on Sunday night.

With their third consecutive victory, Manly pushed four points ahead of the second-placed Panthers and are firmly on track for their first minor premiership since 1997.

But the third-year Sea Eagles coach insisted the club is also making progress off the field, playing down reports of player unrest in recent weeks.

Toovey dismissed reports stars Brett Stewart, Steve Matai, Anthony Watmough and Daly Cherry-Evans are seeking a way out of the club as mere "speculation".

"It happens at all clubs," he said.

"These sorts of things happen with contracts but we're getting on with things and we're sorting things out.

"Let's not believe that those problems are as big as they are reported in the media."

The Sea Eagles held the Warriors scoreless for 72 minutes of the match after conceding an early try while winger Peta Hiku grabbed two four-pointers to hand the Warriors a rare loss at home this season.

Cherry-Evans was all class, guiding his side around with deft kicking and distribution.
