Both sides will come into this match with plenty of confidence after strong wins a week ago. The Warriors easily dispatched the Rabbitohs in Sydney while the Sea Eagles enjoyed a dominant victory over the Panthers, with milestone man Daly Cherry-Evans at his brilliant best.

Reuben Garrick will miss this clash for Manly after suffering a concussion last week, with Ben Trbojevic shifting into the centres. Corey Waddell will take his place at second row and Ethan Bullemor joins the bench.

The Warriors get a big boost with Dallin Watene-Zelezniak and Kurt Capewell back into the side after missing round 5. Adam Pompey drops out of the 17, Mitch Barnett shifts to prop, and Bunty Afoa is also out after injuring his hamstring against the Rabbitohs.

The Warriors are one of the hottest sides in the competition at the moment and are seeking their fourth straight win. Shaun Johnson has started the season on fire, while Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad looked like he hasn’t lost a beat in an impressive return from injury.

While enjoying the home field advantage, the Warriors will no doubt be tested against Manly, who bounced back in a big way last week after a shock loss to the Dragons in round 4. Tom Trbojevic was everywhere a week ago, and the Sea Eagles will need a similar performance from their star fullback if they want to claim their first win in Auckland since 2017.

With both sides on three wins, this match shapes up as one of the best of the round. It’s still one of the hardest tasks in the NRL to win in New Zealand, and with the Warriors winning six of their past seven games at Go Media Stadium, they should win by a narrow margin.
