    Sea Eagles vs Panthers NRL Finals live scores and blog

    Manly have recovered strongly from last year’s disappointing campaign, winning ten of their first 15 games to sit very pretty heading into the season’s business end.

    The last few months saw the Sea Eagles splutter, but back-to-back wins over the Warriors and Panthers to close the season out saw them lock up sixth spot and a ‘home’ elimination final.

    Penrith, on the other hand, looked doomed to 2017’s scrapheap early on after dropping seven of their first nine games.

    They flicked the switch though with a barnstorming run of 11 wins in 13 matches, however they find themselves on the back foot as the finals begin with losses in their last two.
