Preview

The inconsistent Sea Eagles are by far the hardest side to gauge at the minute as they position in the top eight continues to see-saw. A win last week would've seen them tied with the fourth-placed Sharks however their last-minute loss has thrown them back to dangerous territory.

They face a Bulldogs side just begging for 2017 to end. Off-field, talks surrounding Des Hasler's future continues along with their apparent salary caps woes for 2018 while on the field, injuries to Josh Reynolds and Sam Kasiano leave them with holes to fill in their line up as they look to slow their freefall down the NRL ladder.


Young gun Matt Frawley takes Reynolds' place in the halves as he remains a bright spot for them this season with Francis Tualau taking Kasiano's place on the bench.

For all of their offensive struggles in 2017, the Bulldogs' defence has been admirable and ranks higher than two teams in finals contention, including the Sea Eagles.

While the Trbojevic brothers starred once again last week despite the result, Matthew Wright's performance was on another level from both a defensive and offensive perspective. It's the kind of form they'll want to see from the winger as finals football approaches.

With a relatively easy fixture in the remaining three rounds, we'll back the Sea Eagles to close the round with a push towards a home final.

Sea Eagles by 12.
