Brisbane Broncos on the verge of losing three in a row and if their performance is anything like what they displayed against the Roosters you could say by 13+, fortunately for the Broncos down on troops and in need of onfield leadership they have their new signing Ben Teo on the bench and Katoni Staggs returns which will help in their clash against Manly, expect no slack from Manly they come for the two points and will be relentless about it.

The last time these two teams met the Manly Sea Eagles at home were beaten convincingly 10-26. Previously, in earlier years and most recent form, matches between Manly and the Broncos have been pretty even overtime, all the stats for these two are pretty close and similar on the comparison, although two important statistics stand out, one statistic that stands out is the venue, Manly love playing at Central Coast Stadium and have won 80% of their games there, the second statistic is the Broncos have leaked more than double the points Manly have this year.
