The Sea Eagles went into the break 20-6 and looked to be on their way to a top four spot, but the home side launched a fight back to stun Trent Barrett's men.

The Tigers however never gave up and took advantage of some poor Manly play in defence and attack to make up the deficit and secure another great win over the Sea Eagles.

Manly slipped to seventh on points differential, level with sixth-placed Penrith and North Queensland who round out the top-eight.

The Wests Tigers burst out of the blocks with plenty of enthusiasm and they were rewarded with points in the eighth minute when Elijah Taylor pounced on a Luke Brooks grubber.

The Tigers' winning try was only confirmed after the video referee viewed numerous replays when it appeared Sea Eagles star Daly Cherry-Evans had been impeded by a decoy runner.

Tigers hooker Matt McIlwrick failed to return in second half after a failing a concussion test.

Jesse Sue made Perrett pay when the Tigers forward stepped his way past Martin Taupau and beat another two defenders on his way to the tryline.

A Brad Parker error five metres from his own line handed the Tigers one last chance and Malakai Watene-Zelezniak crossed out wide for a heart-stopping victory.
