Round 4 of the 2014 competition kicks off with a replay of last years grand final as the Sydney Roosters take on the Manly Sea Eagles at Allianz Stadium.
Both of these sides have had successful starts to the new season and a win in this clash would see the winner jump further up the competition ladder. Sydney Roosters showed guts in coming from behind and beating the Broncos last Friday night in Brisbane, while Manly edged out last year’s wooden spooners Parramatta at Brookvale.
However both of these clubs have stars set to miss this clash, the Roosters without Sonny Bill Willams and the Sea Eagles without fullback Brett Stewart. Sydney Roosters are unchanged from last week. Manly on the other hand will miss suspended Jason King, with Jesse Sene-Lefao. Keiran Foran is a welcome return for the Sea Eagles.
With both teams in impressive form in the early stages of 2014 it is anyone’s guess as to who will walk away victors in this clash.
