Manly Warringah Sea Eagles will host the South Sydney Rabbitohs in a thriller Friday night football game at Brookvale Oval at 7:45pm.
Manly will be ready to come out and dominate again especially after last weeks performance against the Brisbane Broncos. With Tom Trbojovic returning to the first grade side last week after Steve Matai was ruled out, turned out to be a brilliant advantage for Manly. With the young star showing off his talent again especially after picking up a loose ball and running 75m with pace to score, demonstrated what a crucial role he plays in the team. With Steve Matai securing his spot this week, he will be looking to fill the shoes of Tom and lift his teammates to victory.
South Sydney Rabbitohs will be looking to win and improve their form after Penrith Panthers came close to beating them last weekend. They will be looking to make it their third consecutive win in a row. Greg Inglis and Luke Keary will be the players to watch as they have been in good, consistent form the last couple of weeks. South Sydney will be determined to beat Manly at home at the fortress, to boost their confidence for next week (Round 22) as they head up to North Queensland to play the North Queensland Cowboys.
Manly will not give up especially with a sold out home crowd expected. They will also be looking to win and gain the two points for Geoff Toovey, who will be departing at the end of the season as a means of having a chance to make the finals.
