Sea Eagles Form & Team News


Manly Sea Eagles have slipped outside of the top eight after a run of three straight losses to ladder leaders Penrith Panthers, New Zealand Warriors and Newcastle Knights. 

It is now just two wins from their last eight games and the Sea Eagles are needing a boost if they are to be involved in the fight for finals spots.

At 6-8 for the season and two wins adrift of the Rabbitohs, it is crunch time with this a finals-like contest. 

Manly have named Reuben Garrick at fullback in place of Bendan Elliot, Jorge Taufua comes back on the wing and Martin Taupau starts at prop.
