    Match preview:

    The Wests Tigers visit Fortress Brookie to take on the Manly Sea Eagles in Round 6 of the NRL. Join The Roar from 4:10pm (AEST) for live scores and coverage.

    The Sea Eagles have been inconsistent so far in 2018, dominating at home but looking vulnerable on the road.

    For the Tigers, consistency has been their modus operandi, with a 4-1 start to the season.

    It will be tough for the joint venture returning to Sydney after defeating the Melbourne Storm in New Zealand – especially since Manly are unbeaten at Brookvale Oval in 2018.

    The Sea Eagles delivered an impressive 54-0 win over the Eels in Round 2 before knocking off the Raiders 32-16 a fortnight later, although they are yet to come up against quality opposition.

    Daly Cherry-Evans will be expected to carry his team after a heavy loss to the Titans in Gladstone, while also attempting to secure a State of Origin jumper.

    The Tigers will be boosted by Josh Reynolds’ return from injury, the enigmatic livewire providing head coach Ivan Cleary with a healthy headache as a result of Benji Marshall’s form.

    There is a bitter rivalry between these two clubs, dating back to the ‘Fibros versus Silvertails’ battles of days gone by, between the Magpies and Sea Eagles. Since the joint venture in 2000 however, these two teams have met 25 times with Manly winning 15 games compared to Tigers’ ten.

    Wests Tigers have been victorious just once from nine outings at Brookvale Oval, going down at the venue in Round 19 last year 28-16 before returning fire with a 30-26 win at Leichhardt Oval in Round 23.

    This will be a close, low-scoring affair, but expect the Silvertails to come home strong.

    Sea Eagles by 2.

      Obvious penalty try , I don’t know why the commentators were so surprised. Should be more penalty tries. Manly so soft two weeks in a row. I believe we’ve got a good roster and have plenty of attack but the effort in defence is a long way off the mark The Eels are a chance next week if we play like that.

        Didn’t watch the game but the triple M commentary teams were all in agreement that it should have been a penalty try, though they do have Harrigan on the team so that probably helped. Strange things happening at manly at the moment, you don’t know if they’re going to blow you away or just not show up

          Hard to understand why we were so flat but full credit to the Tigers. Any time a defender drifts across like Luke Brooks did to open up the defence so easily with an inside pass is just really weak defence.

      That concludes The Roar’s coverage of Manly Sea Eagles vs Wests Tigers.

      Rugby league returns next weekend starting with Thursday night football between the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and Sydney Roosters.

      The Wests Tigers take on the Knights next week in Tamworth while the Sea Eagles go to the Olympic Stadium where they meet the winless Parramatta.

      Stay tuned tomorrow morning for my NRL team of the week.

      Thanks for following along.

      This is the first time the Wests Tigers have won at Brookvale Oval since 2003.

      Manly’s last loss at home came on this day last year to the Storm 30-26 (Round 7).

      The Wests Tigers have never won three games on the road to start the season, the first time since Balmain in 1987.

      78′ Croker goes on the inside shoulder to Tom Trbojevic who offloads, Manly can’t make anything of it as Cherry-Evans kicks to Watene-Zelezniak on the last.
