    Very inexperienced backs - heaps of speed and potential but certainly the home ground advantage should assist the Eagles.

    They have some big boppas in their pack but Skandalis, O'Hara and Payten in the back row aren't the most mobile forwards in the game. Hopefully our little men can exploit them especially with Benjis propensity to avoid tackling.

    Our boys have to contain Farah and Benji more effectively! We need the pack to set the platform.

    Take out the 6 and 7 from their backline and it looks very average indeed.

    Reasonably confident of a win on Friday night after looking at that side.

    Jamaal Lolesi isn't a locks arsehole

    The only way they can win it in my opinion is through the likes of laffranchi, skandalis, payten and O'hara up front

    And then the halves are of course dangerous

    Only real threat i see off the bench is Bryce Gibbs... the rest i wouldn't give 2 bob for

    I hope Manly don't go into this game thinking the same as i am though.. be complacent and any team will take you to the cleaners in this competition.

    Manly by 13+

    Whatuira is a huge loss for them - he is a class player.

    Is there only 1 player out from last weeks game against the Cowboys?

    If so this game could prove tougher than we think.

    I hope BK uses Benji as a speed hump again.

    Matai's diabolical defensive hits and his poor possession rate were the reasons we lost at leichhardt. Their back line certainly lacks class and our backs should do well. What needs to happen is that a straight line must be held when they have possession. NO running up to put on the 'shot'. Sure Prince will want to tell the Qld selectors something, but the Ox will also want to dominate to put his credentials on the line after Finch has a shocker at Suncorp. Whatmough should be told to target Farrah and bury him. Eagles to win by at least 15.
