Melbourne Storm vs Manly Sea Eagles Preview

The 2021 NRL Finals Series gets underway with a bang on Friday night with a fixture that wouldn’t look out of place on Grand Final Day.

They were a little slow out of the blocks, but the Melbourne Storm have once again been the NRL’s benchmark in 2021, recording 19 consecutive victories on their way to yet another minor premiership.

Their incredible production line has continued to yield outstanding talent, and they appear to be on the short and narrow towards another deep run.

Standing in their way this week are the Manly Sea Eagles, a team who have returned some of the most exciting performances of the year, highlighted by arguably one of the best solo seasons ever produced by a player, Tom Trbojevic.

Turbo missed plenty of games at the beginning of the year and throughout the Origin period, but he has still quite clearly been the NRL’s best player, and he is the key to Manly’s continued success throughout the finals.

The Storm have opened reasonably firm and justifiable favourites, and I do think that they will win this game, but the Sea Eagles can certainly make a contest of it.
