Sunday, August 16, 2.00 PM, Round 14, McDonald Jones Stadium, Newcastle, Newcastle Knights take on Manly Sea Eagles NRL Match Preview

The last time these two teams met there was a controversial ending that favoured the Knights! will that still be in the back of the Manly Sea Eagles minds as they take the field on Sunday to again face the Knights? The Knights completely obliterated the Wests Tigers last round and the Wests Tigers were left in ruins, the Knights started fast and had an attitude that showed they weren’t mucking around, this week they will need that same attitude as they are not good at winning the games they should! expect a fight as this could be the Sea Eagles last chance at making a run to the finals.
