Manly Sea Eagles vs St George Dragons, Round 15 2024 - Expert Prediction


Manly are a different beast at 4 Pines Park, but the momentum with the Dragons at the moment weighs heavy and give the fact that the Saints start with 5.5 points on their side, the bet is that they will cover as the underdog.

Manly are not the team that started the season and the loss of Tom Trbojevic has hurt them as expected, losing their strike-attacker once again. Both teams are going to have a strong focus on the defensive side of the ball and Manly are much better at defending their line at Brookvale than away from home. This game is expected to go Under the large total of 50.5.

The breakthroughs will come for St George, who put 56 points on the Tigers last week. Zac Lomax has been in incredible try scoring form this season with 10 meat pies for the year. Expect the Dragons centre to continue his push at the top of the try scoring tally with another against Manly.

  • Manly have lost 4 of their past 5 games. 
  • The past 3 matches between Manly and St George have gone Under the game total.
  • Manly averages 19.2 points against at home, compared with 27 points per game away.
  • Zac Lomax has scored 4 tries in his past 3 games.

Head to Head

Manly started the season in hot form but have cooled down heavily over the past 5 matches winning just once during that time.

Since the injury to Tom Trbojevic, Manly have gone 1-3 including the loss to the Dolphins when he injured his hamstring. The Sea Eagles attack has obviously lost its sting and with a 35% win record without Turbo in the team you don’t have to look far to see why they have fallen into a slump.

Manly are averaging just 21 points per game without their starting fullback, compared to 26.3 points per game with Turbo in the lineup.

The Dragons are a hard team to put your finger on at the moment. They can lose by 30 to a bottom-eight team and then come back a week later and beat the premiers. 

With Shane Flanagan at the helm the Dragons are more often than not putting in a much better effort defensively, however, when they have lapsed it has been ugly. It was quite the opposite against Wests last week equally the sixth biggest win in the clubs history when they dusted the Tigers by 42 points.

Zac Lomax got his revenge for a debut loss for the Blues last Wednesday by scoring 3 tries and kicking 10 goals along with recording two linebreaks.

The Saints have now won 3 of their last 4 matches and have two more wins than they recorded in the whole of 2023.
