Wins for Broncos, Manly

9:03 am on 25 April 2011

The Brisbane Broncos remain top of the National Rugby League after beating Wests Tigers 31-18.

In what could be Darren Lockyer's last visit to the Sydney Football Stadium, a venue he has dominated for Brisbane, Queensland and Australia, Lockyer toyed with the Tigers as the Broncos showed there was plenty of attack to go with their impregnable defence.

Manly edged Penrith 22-16, also in Sydney with New Zealand Test centre Steve Matai putting in one of his best performances for a while.

Matai put his hand up for the Anzac Test with a barnstorming two-try effort while Manly five-eighth Kieran Foran also did his Kiwis chances no harm with another confident game ahead of the May 6 Test against Australia on the Gold Goast.

The win rockets the Sea Eagles into the top four for the first time this season and extends their winning streak to three matches.
