Manly Sea Eagles vs Newcastle Knights Preview
Respective blowout losses last week has Manly and Newcastle on the hunt for a return to form this week.
The understrength Sea Eagles were blown apart by the Sharks last Sunday, while the Knights failed to turn up for their clash against the Cowboys in North Queensland.
There is good news on the injury front for both sides with Moses Suli set to return for the Sea Eagles and the one-man wrecking ball Bradman Best returning for the Knights.
As far as trends go though, it is hard to go past Manly as the underdog.
Dating back to the start of last season, the Sea Eagles are 5-2 straight-up following a previous loss, while the Knights have shown a tendency to go on losing streaks in recent years.
If the Knights start out slow like they did last week against the Cowboys, Manly could be in with a chance.
