Rugby League really is a funny game. I guarantee nobody a month ago would have been describing the Sea Eagles vs Dragons as one of the more highly anticipated games of the season, yet here we are.
Manly have been flying after going 0-2 to start the season, beating competition heavyweights the Cowboys and Roosters either side of a 36-0 demolition of the Bulldogs, while the Dragons are 4-1 and remarkably have the best attacking record in the NRL – after being easily one of the worst in that department over the last few seasons.
Trent Barrett and Paul McGregor have suddenly turned into master tacticians and are safe from the sack (for now), with Manly and St George Illawarra fans now holding out hope for a top four finish, let alone the top eight.
The Sea Eagles have been hugely impressive over the last few weeks. Daly Cherry-Evans is now playing like his contract says he should be, while the forwards are providing more grunt and impact, allowing the halves to create more opportunities for the outside backs.
Speaking of the outside backs, Dylan Walkers has been showcasing the sort of form that has seen him play Origin and for Australia, while the same can be said for Akuila Uate.
The Dragons haven’t been as noticeably hot as the Sea Eagles, defeating two lesser teams in the Tigers and Warriors over the last fortnight, but they have been so tough to break down, displaying the sort of football that took them to the premiership in 2010.
As mentioned before, the biggest difference for the Dragons is that they are now firing in attack – and that can be put down to the forwards making more metres, led by Canberra recruit Paul Vaughan, who is right in the frame for an Origin call-up.
Manly have a great recent record against the Dragons, and in my opinion, are playing marginally the better football. Playing at home, where they are trying to turn Lottoland into a fortress, should be that added bonus they need to get over the line.
