Saturday, July 18, 7.35 PM, Round 10, Lottoland, Sydney, Manly Sea Eagles take on Parramatta Eels NRL Match Preview
Tough times for Manly since losing Dylan Walker and Tom Trbojevic having now lost three in a row and suddenly outside the eight if Manly suffer this loss to the Eels they will begin to make there way down to the bottom of the ladder but if they win they could be a sniff away from outside the eight, important game for Manly, massive test, no Blake Ferguson and Ryan Matterson for the Eels will help Manly’s chances.

The last time these two teams met the Eels at home beat the Sea Eagles 19-16. Previously, in earlier years and most recent form, 36 matches played between the Eels and the Sea Eagles favour the Eels winning 20, all other statistics suggest that the Parramatta Eels should win comfortably.
Manly Sea Eagles for the upset.
