8: Manly Warringah Sea Eagles
The only way Manly play finals football is with a healthy Tom Trbojevic. It was clear last season they struggled in attack and defense without him. Manly’s lack of depth coming from the bench is worrying to an extent, but there is enough talent across the team, including Jake Trbojevic, Daly Cherry-Evans, Martin Taupau, Reuben Garrick, and Curtis Sironen. With Kieran Foran returning to Brookvale, and new recruit Josh Aloiai, Manly have enough strike across the park to play finals football again.
