The Warriors have scored at least 20 points in each of their last 3 games while Manly are averaging just over 26 points per game over their last 4 matches. Manly’s defence though has been vastly more impressive and that could well be where this game is won.

Head-to-Head


There have been 37 games between Manly and the Warriors with the Sea Eagles dominating with 25 wins to the Warriors' 12.

Manly recorded a one point victory over the Warriors in Round 5, and it was the third time in the last nine clashes that was decided by a solitary point. It also ended a three-game win streak by the Warriors over Manly.

The Warriors have won six of their 11 games against Manly at Brookvale Oval.

Manly Sea Eagles Form


Manly started the year in abysmal form, losing their first four games and conceding 156 points. It was their worst ever start to a season. 

A spirited 13-12 win over the Warriors, coupled with the return of star fullback Tom Trbojevic a week later, meant Manly were a reborn outfit.

They belted the Titans 36-0 and the hapless Wests Tigers 40-6 before going down to Penrith Panthers last weekend, but by a much more respectable 12 points.

Manly Sea Eagles Team News


Manly have quite an injury list at present. Moses Suli returns this weekend, while Martin Taupau and Curtis Sironen will be expected back next week. 

Dylan Walker and Karl Lawton will be available a further two weeks later. Jack Gosiewski has been ruled out until Round 17 and Josh Aloiai is now expected to miss at least 10 games with a wrist injury. 

Andrew Davey, Morgan Boyle and Manase Fainu all look set to be done for 2021.

For this weekend's game, Sean Keppie will start at prop and Haumole Olakau’atu will be in the run-on side in the back row. 

Moses Suli will return on the bench. Rookie Zac Saddler is named to make his debut from the bench.

New Zealand Warriors Form


The Warriors have struggled to string together back-to-back victories this year. 

They had wins in Rounds 1 (19-6 v Titans), 3 (34-31 v Raiders), 6 (Dragons 20-14) and 8 (24-20 Cowboys). 

Three of their four losses have been against 2020 NRL Finalists having gone down to the Newcastle Knights, Sydney Roosters and Melbourne Storm.

One key feature of the Warriors performance this year though has been their ability to score points late in games, refusing to give up.

New Zealand Warriors Team News


The Warriors have Chanel Harris-Tavita and Euan Aitken both returning this weekend, while Ben Murdoch-Masila and Marcelo Montoya are still another week away. 

Peta Hiku is set to return in three weeks time. Addin Fonua-Blake is set to miss another 10 weeks. David Fusitu’a’s hamstring injury looks to sideline him for a lengthy period.

Eliesa Katoa returns for this match, replacing Murdoch-Masila in the second row, which is the only change to the Warriors side from the team that played last weekend.
