How to watch Newcastle Knights vs Manly Sea Eagles NRL live and free
Manly will be desperate for a win when they travel to Newcastle to take on the Knights. Here is how you can watch.
Manly have dropped two straight matches, including an upset defeat to the Warriors, to slip out of the NRL's top eight. If they can't find a way past the Knights, the injury-hit Sea Eagles could face a massive battle to turn their form around and qualify for this year's finals.
It won't be an easy prospect against a Newcastle line-up that snapped a run of back-to-back losses with an emphatic 40-point thrashing of the Tigers last weekend. With seven matches left in the regular season, the sixth-placed Knights will be zeroing in on another two points.

Who will win Newcastle Knights vs Manly Sea Eagles?
Manly have shown a number of times in 2020 that they shouldn't be written off. Courageous upset victories over the Raiders in Canberra and Parramatta left no doubt about their fighting spirit. But the long NRL season takes its toll, even one as interrupted as this one in the middle of a pandemic. The Knights showed great form last weekend and we expect that to continue in a relatively comfortable win over the Sea Eagles.
