Preview

Canberra has shown their offensive and defensive prowess in back to back weeks and will look for that to come together this week as they host a Manly side who haven’t lost on the road so far this season.

The Sea Eagles came up short against the Storm last week but showed their fighting qualities after trailing 18-0 and 30-12 at different times in the match.

Trent Barrett’s left side defence was badly exposed last week and there’s no doubting Ricky Stuart would’ve taken note of that. They conceded all six tries down that side and as they come up against the second-hottest offense in the league, that could mean a long night is in store for the Sea Eagles.

The Trbojevic brothers were everywhere last week and will need to be again if Manly are to remain undefeated away from home.

For Canberra, Joseph Leilua and Jordan Rapana will be looking to exploit Manly’s weak defensive line with their ability to create something from nothing.

Manly has won five of the last six matches at GIO stadium, a run that we think will turn into five from seven come Friday night.

Raiders by 10.
