    My take on this weekend

    This weeks game is more of a test than last week!! I think the roosters will be fired up for this one( like we were on Monday night) and if we think that because they have played so poorly recently and we just have to turn up and we will win by 13 + margin then we will be in for a shock.

    If Brenton Lawrance and Marty were playing we would be shoe in's but I think roosters by 10.

    Yeah i agree that the Roosters will be desperate for a win, this will not be an easy game. We need to improve on last weeks win to get a victory here.

    Roosters have looked disorganised and not structured. There coach has looked like someone who can only "coach" a team full of stars.
    The chooks will be hopefully thinking "just have to wait to all our stars return in round 9 then we will win". Manly need to continue to improve like they have every week and we can win this.

    Rorters 'have let the wrong half go'. Maloney's kicking game moved them up the field, then their on line defense kept the opposition out. JWH is not due back till round 10 :p

    Hope Ferris gets back to partner Chez and the Manly RHS will continue to churn out the sublime tries :clap:

    I agree the roosters are desperate, but i think we are also in the same boat . A loss will have us 1 and 4 with a burgess added souths next week so its very important we win this . Manly by 16 COME ONNNNNN.

    I predicted 1/4 and 3/8 before kick off, I'm still standing by that.

    Reasoning,

    We are minus, without a doubt, our two best forwards.

    They, like we were on Monday, will be absolutely desperate for a win, desperation creates opportunities.

    We don't have " Fortress Brookvale" to help

    I'd expect , middle of Easter, for it to be a poor crowd, with very few Manly fans.

    *******Anyway there you have it, close game but Rorters by 8.

    Agree with you Mark with your assessment of this weeks game.

    I am going to be one of those few Manly fans making the trip but with no confidence at all.

    This game has ambush and upset written all over it.

    Don't get your feathers in a knot feathered friends because the Roosters have been shocking and have nothing to crow about. They are ripe for another heavy defeat.

    Dear @Mark from Brisbane

    Two of our best forwards. Two weeks ago BJ was a broken down bum we should have gotten rid of, and Kapow just played a very ordinary game.

    Any two replacements we bring in will lift to the same standard.

    Schick Hydro Preview: Sydney Roosters v Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles
    Allianz Stadium
    Saturday 7:30pm

    Few could have predicted the Roosters - three-time defending minor premiers - would start 2016 with three straight losses.

    They were almost joined by the Sea Eagles, who overturned an early eight-point deficit to record their first win in the Trent Barrett era.

    The Roosters are coming off their worst loss under Trent Robinson, and are facing their worst start to a season since 2007.

    A replay of the 2013 grand final could be the inspiration needed to resuscitate their ailing finals prospects.

    The injury-hit Roosters left Townsville with Dale Copley (pec) and Ian Henderson (leg) joining a growing casualty ward. Brendan Elliot will play his first game of the season in the centres, while Eloni Vunakece is in line to make his NRL debut from the bench.

    Manly will be without Martin Taupau who has been suspended for one week for his high shot on Jack Bird, while Brenton Lawrence also misses out through suspension. Jamie Buhrer has been named 18th man in what could be his return from a broken jaw.
    Watch out Roosters: What has happened to the famed 'Bondi Wall'? The Roosters have been the best defensive team in the NRL since Trent Robinson took over in 2013, but have been a shade of their former selves three rounds into the new season. The Tricolours conceded just 300 points in 2015 at an average of 12.5 per game. They've given up 103 already this year at almost 34 points a game. Manly's attack has taken a while to gel, but the inclusion of Brett Stewart made a marked difference against the Sharks, and could be telling against a Roosters team that is leaking tries.

    Watch out Sea Eagles: There are two statistics that should worry Manly leading into Saturday's clash, and they both have to do with the bounce-back factor. The last two teams to lose 40-0 both produced massive turnarounds. The Storm recovered from the 2008 grand final shellacking to beat the Dragons in Round 1, 2009, while the Titans suffered a narrow 20-18 loss in Round 3 last year after being thrashed by the Panthers the previous week. The Roosters will be keen to avenge last week's heavy loss, especially on their home turf. The other stat is the post-Cronulla factor. For whatever reason, teams have struggled the following week after having played the Sharks. Only seven teams in 2015 won the week after playing Cronulla, with the Cowboys already crumbling in 2016. Can Manly recover five days after beating the Sharks?
    Key match-up: Jayden Nikorima v Dylan Walker. Two manufactured five-eighths will do battle at Allianz Stadium on Saturday in a head-to-head contest that could very well decide the match. Both players joined their respective teams in the off-season, and have taken a bit of time to settle. Nikorima was at his best against the Raiders, scoring a try and running the ball on both edges, but went missing in the heavy losses to Souths and North Queensland. Dylan Walker is coming off his best game for Manly, making more metres on Monday night (103) than he did in the first two games combined (85). Both men possess incredible speed and footwork, but their impact will come down to which forward pack wins the battle in the middle.

    The history: Played 127; Roosters 44, Sea Eagles 81, Drawn 2. Manly has a dominant overall record, but the Roosters have won five of the past seven, including the 2013 grand final. The past two matches between the sides at Allianz have been won to nil, with the Roosters getting up 4-0 in 2013, and the Sea Eagles triumphing 8-0 the following year. The Roosters won their only meeting last year 46-10 with Brendan Elliot and Daniel Tupou both scoring hat-tricks.

    What are the odds: All of the early money with Sportsbet was with the Roosters to cause the upset but the cash has been pouring in for the Sea Eagles following their victory over the Sharks and Manly are now solid favourites. Tom Trbojevic and Brett Stewart are the best backed in the first try-scorer market. Latest odds at Sportsbet.com.au.

    Match officials: Referee: Grant Atkins. Assistant referee: Gavin Reynolds. Sideline officials: Clayton Sharpe and Nick Beashel.

    Televised: Fox Sports 1 – Live coverage from 7:30pm (AEDT).


    The way we see it: No side has ever won the competition having started the season 0-4. The Roosters only have to look to last year's Cowboys for inspiration, with the North Queenslanders recovering from three straight losses to eventually lift the trophy on the first Sunday in October. Unfortunately for the Roosters, they simply don't have the same attacking artillery, and against a vastly improved Manly side, look consigned to another loss. Manly by 10.

    Manly should win by 10 - 12
    After matching the middle it's a perfect opportunity for DCE & Walker to make a statement.
    We are missing Kapow & Lawrence but they are without Hargreaves, Cordner & Pearce with their most dangerous factor - zero wins & desperate.
    If Manly overcome this in the first half, the class of a Snake & DCE will win the day.
