IN PICTURES: Kaspersky Lab touch football with the Manly Sea Eagles (1)

The annual showdown between the Kasperky Lab all-stars and the Manly Sea Eagles resulted in a boil over at Sydney Academy near Narrabeen with the rank outsiders taking out the event - and the gold cup - by eight tries to six, which also happened to be the number of players the all-stars had on-field at any given time compared to Manly's six. Of course, Manly weren't exactly going full steam - or fielding a full line-up - but the all-stars did have the pleasure of taking on some of Manly's finest including star half-back Daly Cherry-Evans while the full squad attended the match including captain Jamie Lyons, other star half-back Keiran Foran, Matt Balin, Peta Hiku and star recruits Luke Burgess and Willie Mason. The Kaspersky Lab outfit was led by A/NZ MD Andrew Mamonitis and included representatives from Hemisphere Technologies, Interactive, IBM, Exclusive Networks and, of course, ARN. Here are some of the highlights. Photos by ARN editorial director, MIKE GEE.
