Sea Eagles soar home as Panthers purr

7:31 am on 10 April 2011

A last-minute try to Manly winger Michael Oldfield secured the visitors a remarkable comeback victory over Cronulla in their National Rugby League clash at Toyota Stadium.

Oldfield latched onto a Jamie Lyon chip kick before running 40 metres untouched as the Sea Eagles rallied from 13 points down to emerge victorious 19-13.

Elsewhere in Sydney, an injury to Penrith halfback Luke Walsh soured a convincing 36-10 NRL victory over struggling Canberra at Centrebet Stadium.

The No.7 had only made his return from a week off with a shoulder complaint on Saturday night.

Penrith restarted their stop-start season by finally managing a home performance that didn't embarrass them, winger David Simmons bagging a hat-trick in a six-tries-to-two win in front of 10,229 fans.
