Needing a minor miracle to make the finals over the next fortnight, the Tigers simply must beat Manly if they are to stand any chance of sneaking into the top eight.
With the Broncos and Warriors four points above them on the ladder, the Tigers must win both of their remaining fixtures and hope either of the two slip up and lose their last two.
It seems highly unlikely that it will happen, but the Warriors are one of the most unreliable teams in the competition, so it’s certainly no guarantee they will win their final two games – especially after they lost to the lowly Bulldogs last week.
The Tigers blew a golden opportunity to come within two points of the Warriors as they went down 20-10 to a struggling Dragons outfit. Will that loss ultimately spell the end of their season?
Manly’s season meanwhile was over months ago. It’s been a turbulent year at Brookvale, and the unrest only seems to reach new heights with every passing week – recently it’s been Trent Barrett wanting out of his coaching position, with rumours of Geoff Toovey seeking a return to the club that sacked him.
You can’t deny it’s unsettling the players – the Sea Eagles are just one win off the bottom of the ladder and inexcusably let slip of a 22-6 half-time lead against Gold Coast to lose 42-34 at home last week.
Considering the Tigers beat Manly in their last meeting and have everything to play for, I’m backing the joint-venture side to prevail in this one. They have coaching controversy of their own to deal with, but they’ve been better than Manly for most of the season and should be good enough to get the job done on Thursday night.
Elijah Taylor (corked thigh) is out for the Tigers, meaning Matt Eisenhuth moves to lock and Chris Lawrence returns to the starting pack. Alex Twal and Josh Aloiai are both added to the bench with Jacob Liddle dropping to 18th man.
Jack Gosiewski replaces Frank Winterstein on the bench in Manly’s only change.
