Three of Manly’s seven boycotters marked their return to the team with tries against Parramatta, but it wasn’t enough to prevent a 36-20 loss that dealt a potentially fatal blow to the Sea Eagles’ final chances.

Tolutau Koula, Jason Saab and Christian Tuipulotu were part of the group that sat out last week’s loss to the Sydney Roosters as they chose not to wear Manly’s pride jersey on religious grounds.

The trio all crossed over to Brookvale Oval on Friday, but the Eels proved too good for their arch-rivals thanks to a quadruple blitz in the second half.
