Match Preview.
A team playing for pride taking on a serious premiership threat! We have an in form Roosters outfit looking to take advantage of an inconsistent Manly team off the back of heartbreak.

At Lottoland, Manly are a severe chance here for this game. An unlucky bounce of the ball is all that stopped them from knocking off the defending premiers, and after last weeks performance, you would be stupid to not at least give them half a chance. Although they’ve been incredibly poor at times and inconsistent all season, they have also been incredibly impressive when you least expect them too. They are the nightmare team to tip this year.

The Roosters had a shocker start to the season, but the last few weeks they have been playing like the Roosters we all expected. A team with an incredible amount of talent and a serious knack of scoring points, the Manly team will either need to defend their asses off or have a lot of points in them if they are to stop this Roosters team. The Roosters need to be careful here but, as a lucky referee blunder won them the game last week against a low ranked Titans team. 

Prediction.
Roosters by 16. Can’t go past the desperation of them trying to finish the year in the top 4. With the talent finding their form and the role players finding their groove, I see the Roosters charging home hard, and Manly will just be a victim.

-Blake.
