New Zealand Warriors vs Manly Sea Eagles Preview
Things are only about to get harder before they get any easier for Manly.
After suffering a 40-point loss last week to the Panthers, the Sea Eagles now travel to Gosford on Friday night to face a Warriors side looking to return to winning form.
Although injuries have largely been to blame for Manly’s winless start, there’s no denying Des Hasler’s side is lacking the mental focus and effort to string together two consistent halves of football right now.
The Warriors also have their injury concerns, but this does look a nice little bounce-back game for them after suffering at the hands of the Roosters last week.
Unfortunately, Addin Fonua-Blake has joined Peta Hiku on the sidelines, but Warrior fans can rest easy knowing their side has won three straight over Manly dating back to 2019.
The Sea Eagles may get some reprieve if Tom Trbojevic is deemed fit to play, but with obvious problems in the locker-room, it’s very difficult to see Manly pulling off an upset here.
