Manly Sea Eagles vs Newcastle Knights, Round 19 2024 - Expert Prediction

A lot of sting will be taken out of this game with key attackers out on Origin duty for both teams. This will result in a low-scoring game that hits the under on the game total and the boring option of either team winning by a 1-12 margin.

Newcastle will be missing both of their starting centres and Kalyn Ponga, while veterans Cherry-Evan and Jurbo will be out for Many. 

The Sea Eagles have been strong defensively at home which gives more of a reason to suspect that they will contain the Newcastle attack, which scores the second-least points of any team in the comp. 

The Manly attack will struggle without Cherry-Evans guiding them around the park and winning the field position battle with his kicking game, which also raises warning signs for the under and a tight winning margin either way. 

  • 7 of 8 Newcastle away games have been decided by a 1-12 margin 
  • 5 of the past 7 games between Manly and Newcastle have been decided by a 1-12 margin.
  • 5 of the past 6 Manly games have gone under the game total.
  • Reuben Garrick has scored 4 tries in his past 4 games at 4 Pines Park

Head to Head 

Newcastle have the slight edge at the moment in the head to head battle, getting a 28-18 win at McDonald Jones Stadium in round 13 last season and the pair playing a 32-all draw in round 5.

Both the Knights and the Sea Eagles have 4 wins and a draw since 2019.

It has been lose one, win one for Manly over their past 6 games and due to the tightness of the competition in 2024 they are still in seventh spot despite their inconsistent form.

Daly Cherry-Evans slotted a golden-point field goal to get them past North Queensland last weekend after the Cowboys rallied from 12 points down to tie things up late. 

Manly are a mid-pack team in most key statistical categories, they play like it and they get these type of results, where you are just not sure which team will show up on the day. However, the one consistency that they do have is they defend much better at home and have a decent 5-1 record at 4 Pines Park this season, conceding just 18.3 points per game at home this season. 

Manly Sea Eagles Team News

Jamie Humphreys takes Daly Cherry-Evans place at halfback and Nathan Brown moves to lock for Jake Trbojevic with the veteran pair out on Origin duty.

Tom Trbojevic will move back to fullback with Tolu Koula out with a knee injury. Tommy Talau will play in the centres and Lehi Hopoate moves to the wing.

Karl Lawton will start on the edge with Ben Trbojevic out on concussion protocol.

Clayton Faulalo Gordon, Chan Kum Tong and Corey Waddell all join the bench.

Despite not faring well against top-eight sides this season going 2-6 against teams currently in finals contention, the Knights have one in patches when they have åplayed lesser teams and are just on the outskirts in ninth. 

Injury has been a concern and the halves combination has had more changes than the oil in my HG Holden, but Will Pryce has looked good since coming in at No.6 with Jackson Hastings in the No.7 and the Knights are back on a two-game win streak, beating Parra and Canberra.

With Ponga eventually returning after Origin duties, Newcastle will be hoping that their attack lifts as they currently rank 16th in the league, scoring just 18.6 points per game and also in the same position with just 4.1 linebreaks per game. The Knights complete the fourth-least amount of tackles in their oppositions 20m, playing the ball just 26.7 times in their attacking redzone.

Newcastle Knights Team News

Fletcher Sharpe is back in the No. 1 with Kalyn Ponga in the Queensland side. Dane Gagai and Bradman Best both got a call-up for Game 3 and will be replaced by Dylan Lucas and Thomas Cant in the centres. 

Krystian Mapapalangi is named on the wing while Phoenix Crossland will start at hooker and Adam Elliot returns to lock out the scrum.
