Preview

It was yet another case of what could have been for the Tigers. Although Manly always looked capable, there was a time where the Tigers went beyond a converted try lead. Good teams do not lose from there.

The Eels are well rested following the bye round and should be ready to launch a serious finals assault. They should win games like this if they want to really be there in September.

The return to Tiger Town, of sorts, for Mitchell Moses is an interesting sub plot, although the Tigers have much bigger threats to nullify, i.e. Clint Gutherson and Corey Norman if they want to be any shot here.

Games between these two teams are traditionally high scoring and expect that to continue here. The Tigers will be brave but ultimately outclassed.

Eels by 12.

    • Is this confirmed or just speculation? Whats he done? Another ACL?

      Hopefully nothing too serious – he’s been the Eels best player all year.
      Kid cant seem to shake the serious injuries.

      • Confirmed. ACL. Season over. Hopefully not career ending. 2 ACL’s on the same knee is a big ask to come back from. Its been done before but they never return the same.
        Poor kid. Was building nicely.
