From Daily Telegraph: http://www.dailytelegraph.com.au/sport/nrl/the-lowdown-sea-eagles-v-dragons/story-e6frexnr-1226380285656 TWO weeks ago Melbourne Storm officials paid for one of Manly's cast of free agents to fly south and tour their facilities at AAMI Park. Because neither Tony Williams, Kieran Foran, Brett Stewart nor Steve Matai were on the plane, the trip remained quiet until the mystery man grabbed a hat-trick at Brookvale last night. Of Manly's 10 off-contract first- graders this year, winger Michael Oldfield boasts the lowest profile. But the Sea Eagles junior and former junior athlete's three tries were the highlight of a grinding contest against St George Illawarra that was not sealed until his final try in the 74th minute. "Hopefully this should help (me get a contract next year), but time will tell," Oldfield said. "It's great to get one try let alone three, so this was special." None of Oldfield's tries will make the end-of-season highlights reel, with the winger benefiting from superb lead-up work from inside men Jamie Lyon and Glenn Stewart on all three occasions. But much like the tattered premiers, he nevertheless got the job done with a minimum of fuss. One of four teams without a bye over the season's first half, Manly gladly limped into next weekend's blessed break with a host of stars on ice.
