    THE Sea Eagles face a gruelling road trip of nearly 10,000km over the next fortnight as they strive to grab a top-four spot for the NRL finals series.

    The resolve of the defending premiers will really be put to the test by the tough schedule which follows last Friday night's 20-12 loss to the Bulldogs in the big grudge match of the season at Brookvale Oval.

    Tomorrow the frequent-flying squad makes the 3301km trip to Perth ahead of their grand final rematch against the New Zealand Warriors on Saturday evening at Patersons Stadium (5.30pm Sydney time).

    That is why they get the big bucks!

    The Warriors do it fortnightly and played in the GF.

    So no more excuses Manky-time to treat each game with respect!

    So the $64 question is, is he implying that Snake is back this week ?

    "And he said the return of fullback Brett Stewart will really boost the side's attacking weaponry"
