THE PREDICTION

New Zealand Warriors have produced a strong season in the circumstances and it would be fitting if they could end an extremely challenging 2020 with a win. They will have to do it tough without influential skipper Roger Tuivasa-Sheck but they have shown under Todd Payten that they can deal with adversity. It has been a terrible season for Manly Sea Eagles with injuries derailing their campaign but they have simply not been good enough for the majority of their matches. Neither side have anything to lose here so expect the ball to be given some air on this Sunday arvo which should result in at least 47 points.
