THE TEAM NEWS
MANLY SEA EAGLES
Starting 13: T. Trbojevic, Saab, Parker, Harper, Garrick, Foran, Cherry-Evans, Sipley, Croker, Taupau, Olakau’atu, Schuster, J. Trbojevic – Interchanges: Walker, Lawton, Sironen, Aloiai – Reserves: Suli, De Luis
Unavailable: Manase Fainu (Suspended), Andrew Davey (Injured), Morgan Boyle (Injured), Sean Keppie (Personal Reasons), Taniela Paseka (Injured), Tevita Funa (Suspended)
- Manly Sea Eagles had to dig deep to keep their hopes of making the top four alive and their narrow win over Canberra Raiders last week means that their fate is now in their own hands following Sydney Roosters’ loss to South Sydney Rabbitohs on Friday.
- Trailing 12-0 at the break, the Sea Eagles managed to fight back to claim the win despite missing star man Tom Trbojevic but his return here should aid his side’s attacking play after stuttering to just 19 points last week.
Starting 13: Meaney, Allan, Hopoate, Schoupp, Okunbor, Averillo, Flanagan, Seumanufagai, Biondi-Odo, Hetherington, Doorey, Stimson, Jackson – Interchanges: Wakeham, Ogden, Patolo, S. Katoa – Reserves: Manu, Topine
Unavailable: Christian Crichton (Injured), Raymond Faitala-Mariner (Injured), Chris Smith (Injured), Nick Cotric (Injured), Ofahiki Ogden (Injured), Dylan Napa (Suspended), Corey Waddell (Suspended), Adam Elliott (Suspended), Jeremy Marshall-King (Personal Reasons), Lachlan Lewis (Suspended)
- Canterbury Bulldogs’ losing streak now stands at nine matches after their defeat to Newcastle Knights last week ensured that they would end the campaign with the wooden spoon.
- Trent Barrett has failed to get his side going and while they will be desperate to add to their two wins so far this season, this looks a tall order against an in-form side that they went down to in a humiliating 0-66 defeat earlier in the year.
Manly Sea Eagles can end the round in fourth spot and move a step
closer to achieving their goal as they take on bottom side Canterbury
Bulldogs. This looks like a huge mismatch on paper and that proved to be
the case when the Sea Eagles blew their opponents off the park in an
embarrassing way when they last met. That might ignite a response from
the Bulldogs as they aim to right the wrongs of that wretched display
but having lost their last nine games, it is difficult to envisage them
getting anywhere near Manly who can cover the huge -32 handicap on the
way to recording another blowout.
