Manly Sea Eagles vs St George Illawarra Dragons Tips - Origin the key for Manly

Friday night’s primetime game will see the Manly Sea Eagles (9-0-7, 20 points) ‘host’ the St George Illawarra Dragons (8-0-8, 18 points), and both teams will be desperate for the W.

For the Sea Eagles, it’s all about avenging last week’s shock 30-16 loss to the out of form Raiders that ended their three-game winning streak. 

Sure, they lined up with DCE, Jake and Tom Trbojevic, but given how poor that opponent has been recently and Manly’s top four hopes, they still should have been good enough.

This meanwhile will be the Dragons’ first game of footy since PaulVaughngate and they will be eager to let their footy do the talking. They are coming off back-to-back wins over the Raiders (22-20) and Warriors (19-18) and have won three of four. 

Verdict

If either DCE or Turbo (or both) back up from Origin, it’s tough imagining anything other than a Manly win.
