  • Manly Sea Eagles produced a woeful performance as they were on the end of a surprising loss to Gold Coast Titans last week and big improvements will be needed.

  • Brisbane Broncos were underwhelming as they suffered just their second loss of the season, going down to South Sydney Rabbitohs in disappointing fashion last week.
  • The Broncos will be desperate to prove that was just a blip and they will be boosted by the return of key man Payne Haas as well as five-eighth Ezra Mam with both coming back into the side after serving one-match suspensions.

Starting 13: Walsh, Arthars, Staggs, Farnworth, Cobbo, Mam, Reynolds, Flegler, Walters, Haas, Capewell, Riki, Carrigan – Interchanges: Paix, Jensen, Palasia, Taupau – Reserves: Mariner, Willison, Madden, Hoeter, Hetherington

Unavailable: Corey Oates (Injured)


Manly Sea Eagles were really poor last time out and there have been rumours of discontent behind the scenes during the week, making this a tough matchup with Brisbane Broncos. After also producing an underwhelming effort last week, the Broncos will have a point to prove and boast home advantage in this Magic Round encounter. They are pretty much back to full strength and with Manly in a bit of disarray ahead of this clash, it is the Broncos that are fancied to come out on top.
