2019-03-16T06:30:00Z - Leichhardt Oval

Preview

Team News: With Moses Mbye and David Nofoaluma out, Corey Thompson shifts to fullback, with Mahe Fonua and Robert Jennings on the wings. Former Roosters Ryan Matterson and Paul Momirovski start in their respective positions. Thomas Mikaele debuts off the bench. Brendan Elliot will start at fullback for Manly, with fellow former Titan Kane Elgey partnering Cherry-Evans in the halves. Reuben Garrick debuts on the wing.

Prediction: Saturday afternoon, the sun is shining on Leichhardt Oval, and Benji Marshall leads his side down the tunnel, followed closely behind by Robbie Farah. Goosebumps. Manly’s side looks disappointing on paper, and new signing Kane Elgey is yet to prove himself in the NRL. The sense of occasion will be there for both sides playing under a new coach, but it’ll be the Tigers that get home in front of a packed Leichhardt hill. At least, that’s what 69% of tipsters believe. Tigers by 12.

  1. Should you be gloating Mychookmycar, when your beloved roosters got done by your bitter rivals Souths? Heehee.

  2. Wouldn’t worry bout it too much mate, those that continue to change there names on here are just showing how weak they are, and live a sad little life

  3. ManWar69er looks like you blokes took it like a Oxford St bloke. Gonna be a cliffhanger with the Berries for this years spoon.

    AHAHAHAHAH
