    The Manly Sea Eagles are struggling to string wins together after a strong start to the season and need to return to winning ways at home against the Parramatta Eels tonight. Join us for live scores and commentary from 7.00pm AEST.

    Despite still sitting inside the top four, Manly have lost their past three matches and are in a form slump.

    Recent defeats to the Warriors, Bulldogs and Roosters leaves the Sea Eagles just one point ahead of the fifth placed Titans.

    Brett Stewart’s absence from Manly’s line-up has really hurt the Sea Eagles capacity to score points over the past eight weeks.

    In last week’s defeat to the Roosters, Manly were too frantic with the football and looked like a team with no key attacking game plan.

    Although Stewart did make his return from injury last week, the fact that Kieran Foran was a late withdrawal against the Roosters did not help Manly’s attacking cause.

    With Foran and Stewart back in tonight’s line-up for Manly, expect the Sea Eagles to finally hit the right gears in attack against the struggling Eels at Brookvale Oval.


    Despite lacking direction in attack, Manly still managed to dominate upfront against the Roosters for long periods in the contest and should be favoured to do so again against Parramatta.

    Indeed the Sea Eagles should get plenty of chances to score points tonight, but whether they take their chances or not will be the key to deciding if they win or not.

    If Manly fail to take their early opportunities against the Eels, frustration will build and the home side may once again push too many passes and produce too many errors.

    Throw in a try against the run of play to the Eels and Manly may once again struggle to secure the two competition points.

    A patient and disciplined start from the Sea Eagles however should allow them to secure a convincing victory against an Eels side that simply lacks the class and experience to trouble top four opposition.

    Sea Eagles by 18.

      Jeez did Stewart have dosh on Foran as last tryscorer – that was very odd. I’ve only watched the highlights, any possible explanation given?

      No surprises here…

      What will Ricky’s excuse be for this one, rebuilding or refs?

        I think the Eels need to rebuild. They have been awful for a very long time. The coaches can only do so much. I think the Eels have a lot of dead weight at the moment at that club. They have had various coaches trying to get this club going and nothing has worked. Find players who want to play for each other and players who are hungry for success. Put some pride back in the shirt. A terrible display again tonight. I am feeling for Ricky, the players are just not pulling their weight.

      Stewart very unselfish there to offload to Foran when he easily could have scored at the death.

      Manly cruised to a routine victory over the hapless Eels and regain their place inside the top four. All their big guns fired tonight with Stewart, Williams and Taufua in particular causing huge havoc. There were some nice moments from the Eels but they were outclassed big time by a premiership contender. Just the win that Manly needed to get some confidence on the board after a tough past few weeks. Thanks for your company tonight and join us next time on The Roar

      TRY SEA EAGLES – Manly have gone on with the job here and might hit 50 yet with just over a minute remaining. Great try to Lyon. Taufua now races away before finding Foran who scores!

      Cherry-Evans with a chip kick that Stewart regathered before finding Williams who then found Lyon on the inside to score and put the icing on the cake!
