Manly have it all to play for on Sunday when they host the struggling Wests Tigers. The Sea Eagles were given an almighty reality check by the Panthers, after flying into the clash on the back of two great wins over Cronulla and the Warriors.
The Tigers season now looks one of saving face. The wooden spoon is probably no longer an issue, but final’s footy seems the world away. It’s all about pride now.
On paper, Manly should run up a cricket score. They’re capable of blowing any side away on their day but are just as capable of turning in an absolute stinker.
The Tigers put the Knights to the sword and should be fresh off the bye, but if Manly doesn’t win this game, and win well, any talk of a possible title challenge will diminish.
Sea Eagles by 14.
