Match 6 – New Zealand Warriors v Manly Sea Eagles

The Warriors were the talk about town last Sunday afternoon when they travelled to Brisbane and beat the Broncos by an emphatic 32 points. This time they are at home, but the bookies still have them as the second picks as Manly had their own smashing win last week 36 – 12 against Newcastle in their first win of the season.

With two teams coming off two high scoring victories, this game will come down to who can act defensively as well as blitz their attack. Manly are the current favourites and despite having only one notch in the Win column this year, have played well in all three matches with victory still fresh in their minds.

Will be a hard-hitting match well worth watching, but without Vatuvei and Mannering the Warriors’ excellent form for the last two weeks will be tested. Will the crowd’s support be enough for New Zealand here?
