St George Illawarra Dragons vs Manly Sea Eagles Preview
Manly head coach Des Hasler will be hoping his side can avoid their first 0-3 start since 2015 on Friday when they meet a rejuvenated Dragons side in Wollongong.
St George, fresh from a grueling 25-18 win over the Cowboys last week in Townsville, find themselves as the slight favourites in betting with the Sea Eagles still struggling through injury.
Now joining Tom Trbojevic, Curtis Sironen, and a handful of others on the sideline is experienced back-rower Andrew Davey, who suffered a season-ending knee injury last week in the loss to the Rabbitohs.
Manly’s reserves are already wearing thin, but if they can hold on just a little bit longer, reinforcements like Turbo and Sironen should help them turn things around in the next few weeks.
With their stars still a few games away from returning though, this is yet another tough assignment going up against a Dragons side that has typically held their number in recent times.
St George has won four of its last five over Manly, including a 34-4 drubbing when these two sides met at Jubilee in Round 9 last year.
After Ben Hunt and Corey Norman steered the ship perfectly last week against North Queensland, the fit and healthy Dragons look a strong bet to improve to 2-1.
