The Sea Eagles hit back with a try to Latu Fainu, with Metcalfe converting to give the visitors a 20-4 lead after 48 minutes of play.
The Raiders closed the gap to 20-10 after a second try to Strange and successful conversion to Regan Carr.
Two penalty goals to Manly brought to score to 24-10, before Raiders hooker Shaun Packer went over for a try in the 66th minute.
Carr added the two points to bring the home side to within eight points at 24-16.
But the Sea Eagles were able to hold on for the final three minutes of the game to claim the win.
