MANLY V ST GEORGE ILLAWARRA at Brookvale Oval at 3pm Head to head: Played 6, Dragons 4, Manly 2. Last clash: Dragons 32 bt Sea Eagles 6 at WIN Stadium. FootyTAB: Sea Eagles +0.5. Centrebet: Sea Eagles $1.73, Dragons $2.10. Tab Sportsbet: Sea Eagles $1.80, Dragons $1.93. Manly is always hard to beat at Brookvale Oval, losing only one of its last eight matches at home, and face the Dragons down on confidence. The Sea Eagles have lost three on the trot, while the Dragons are in danger of dropping out of the eight after losing to the Eels last week. The suspension of Trent Barrett for striking is a huge blow for the red-and-whites, with Daniel Holdsworth slotting into pivot in his absence. But with Mark Gasnier returning, the Dragons still have plenty of firepower and should be able to break down an Eagles defensive line that has lost its early-season sting. Key: The forward contest will decide this one. Expect Luke Bailey and Jason Ryles to have a big game. Tip: Dragons.
