    Match preview:

    The Manly Sea Eagles will be looking to consolidate their top-four spot when they host the Wests Tigers at Lottoland in Round 19. Join The Roar for all the action from 2pm (AEST).

    The Sea Eagles are heavy favourites, despite coming off a loss last week against Penrith. They’ll have Blues interchange forward Jake Trbojevic backing up from Origin Game 3 last Wednesday night, who will take the starting spot of Darcy Lussick, the latter moving to the bench. Brad Parker drops out of the 17.

    The Tigers are currently second last on the ladder, with just four wins to show for their efforts in 2017. But they did win their last match, against Newcastle, to keep themselves away from the bottom of the table, before having a bye last week.

    Along with having the second-worst defence in the competition, conceding an average of 25 points a match, the Tigers also have the second-worst attacking record, typically scoring 15 points a game.

    Fullback James Tedesco and prop Aaron Woods will be backing up for them from Origin, while backrower Chris Lawrence returns from a hamstring injury.

    Manly by 10. They have too much to play for and should be fired up after last week’s loss to Penrith.

    Join The Roar from 2pm (AEST) for live score updates and commentary.

      Top second half by Manly, I wasn’t convinced they had it in them at half time. Uate the play of the day for me, frightening for everyone when he cranks it up.

      Any news on Api, iced calf at full time.

      A fully fit Tom T and the rep scene honours has done wonders for Jake T.
      These two are the main reason why Manly is pushing for a top 4 finish.

      I’m over this “DCE this, DCE that” when the bros are doing the tough stuff up front.
      Green and Api are also making Daly look like a world beater, but we all know who the media will glorify post match.

        Agree with part of your comment. The players you mentioned have been great. Tom Turbo today getting back to his best.

        But I don’t really get why we shouldn’t celebrate a guy in career best form? And it’s not like this is a breakout season for DCE. He’s been a top shelf half for all but one of his 7 seasons of NRL.

        The spine for Manly has been sensational. Having the luxury of picking them week in, week out has been one of the main reasons for Manly’s position on the ladder. It’s a true team effort at this stage.

        Not sure why DCE receives such hatred from those north of the border.

        Im just glad he’s playing for us.

          Green and Api had nothing to do with the 40/20…or putting Lane over..if he got injured Manly would feel it worse than any of those players you mentioned…

        Jake Turbo is the best forward in the game. If only NSW keep him on the bench and this Queenslander will be happy.
