The Warriors couldn’t blame the referees for their 46-12 hammering by the Raiders last Friday night and have had a week to mull over their worst performance of the season before welcoming a red-hot Sea Eagles side to Auckland.
Canberra got out to a 30-0 lead by half-time and the result was done and dusted, as the Warriors missed a whopping 58 tackles, with the result leaving them 1.5 games outside the top eight.
Manly dominated the second half of their match against the Knights to score a 30-6 win at home, their sixth win from seven starts as they chase a top four spot.
These two sides both love to offload, with the Sea Eagles leading the competition with 12.8 offloads per game and the Warriors close behind on 11.2. Manly shade most attacking stats against the Warriors and on a wet night, ball security could be the difference.
The Wolf is expecting Manly to have another big win against a side that won’t figure in the finals and has been teasing us all season long.
