Roosters v Sea Eagles Tips & Betting Preview

the Sydney Roosters hosts Manly at Leichhardt Oval with the reigning premiers hoping to bounce back following a first round capitulation.

Sydney scored the first two tries of the match last week against the Panthers before conceding the next three to lose by six points. It was a disappointing start to the season for the Tricolours who looked in control of the match early.

Manly were right in the game against the Melbourne Storm in their opening round fixture before the Storm surged late on the back of some Josh Addo-Carr magic. It was a positive sign for the Sea Eagles who had a number of injury concerns coming into the match.

Facing the second best team in the league in round one and the reigning premiers in round two is certainly a rough start for the Sea Eagles and we expect the Roosters to flex their muscles on Saturday.
