Manly head for preliminary final

6:03 am on 14 September 2008

The Manly rugby league side has earned a NRL preliminary final and ended the season of St George Illawarra with a 38-6 qualifying final victory at Brookvale Oval.

Meanwhile Cronulla has defeated Canberra 36-10.

The reward for the 26-point drubbing is a likely sudden-death encounter with the Sydney Roosters and possibly at the Roosters' home ground.
