Sea Eagles


These two teams come into Saturday on the back of strong performances away from home. Manly thumped the Cowboys in arguably the surprise of the season while the Bulldogs went across the ditch and beat the Warriors rather comfortably in the end.

For Manly, Tom Trbojevic lit up the NRL world with a length of the field try after intercepting a Jonathan Thurston kick last week and continues to run the ball at speed and with purpose from the back of the Manly line. The fullback is averaging over 200 metres a game and will take some stopping from the blue and white men.

The Bulldogs meanwhile have one of the most imposing front rows in the competition. With Aiden Tolman and James Graham leading the line, they have the potential to dominate field position if given the chance on Saturday afternoon. Greg Eastwood, Josh Jackson and Sam Kasiano are also there to give them a hand and should Manly cough up the ball, you can bet your bottom dollar these guys will bulldoze the Manly line.

With this proving to be one of the games of the round, you can toss a coin to see who wins this lotto. But at home and coming off their best performance in quite some time, we’ll back Manly to take home the points.
