Friday, August 7, 6.00 PM, Round 13, Lottoland, Sydney, Manly Sea Eagles take on New Zealand Warriors NRL Match Preview
The Sea Eagles still circling eighth place on the ladder, sitting in ninth place the Sea Eagles are looking to break through, last round they were faced by the Panthers in first place and the Manly Sea Eagles were certainly put in their place, it would have been painful for the Sea Eagles fans, still within a hopes chance though and taking on a Warriors team who have been winning games of late things could be worse! make no mistake though the Warriors don’t mind positive headlines so if they can get the two points they will take them, the only problem is against Manly there is record isn’t great!
