Newcastle Knights vs Manly Sea Eagles Preview
A game against the red-hot Sea Eagles couldn’t have come at a worse time for the Knights.
Newcastle has suffered back-to-back blowout defeats over the last fortnight to the Tigers and Cowboys, but there could be some reprieve on the horizon with Bradman Best and Kalyn Ponga both a chance at returning this week.
Even so, the Sea Eagles have shown no signs of slowing down after flexing their muscle last week in a convincing 28-6 win over the Eels.
Manly has been an outstanding bet as the away favourite over the last year 12 months playing to a 3-0 record at the line, and the way they are playing defensively right now suggests they should have no trouble holding the Knights to a low total.
Playing on the road in Newcastle is always tricky, but with a chance to bridge the gap between themselves and the top four, the Sea Eagles look a safe bet to keep rolling against a Knights team still battling through injury.
