After suffering back-to-back humiliating defeats on the road over the last fortnight, Manly will welcome a return home to Brookvale, but they have to be at the peak of their powers if they are to emerge triumphant against a Roosters side that keeps on rolling towards a top two finish.
Climbing to third on the ladder just a few weeks ago, the Sea Eagles are now battling to keep their spot in the eight following embarrassing losses to the Dragons and Storm. Manly conceded over 90 points in both those games, with their points differential taking a bit hit in the process.
With Penrith hot on their heels, the Sea Eagles are all of a sudden in big danger of dropping out the top eight if they don’t turn things around soon – and it doesn’t get much tougher than a confident Roosters side.
On a three-match winning streak and having won six of their last seven, the Roosters look certain to at least wrap up an all-important top four finish, while they are ready to pounce if Melbourne slip up over the remaining five games of the regular season.
The Roosters were impressive in rising to the challenge of North Queensland last week, recovering from falling behind at half-time to register a 22-16 victory.
Trent Robinson has obviously pointed out defence as a key area for the Roosters over the last few weeks, with the Tricolours conceding 16 points or less in their last three wins. If they can restrict Manly to the same margin, the Roosters should be able to score enough points for the win if the Sea Eagles’ defence is as poor as it’s been over the last two weeks.
Revenge will also be on the mind of the Roosters after a late Dylan Walker try handed Manly a 18-12 victory back in Round 5. I can’t possibly back a team who has conceded a combined 90 points in their last two matches against the second-placed side, so I’m backing the Roosters home on Sunday.
