Sea Eagles vs Tigers match preview
With the welcome additions of stars Daly Cherry-Evans and Tom Trbojevic, as well as the other Trbojevic brother, Jake, Manly's push for a top-4 spot continues in earnest. Coach Des Hasler has his Sea Eagles flying high in 2021. They sit 6th on the ladder, just 2 points behind the Roosters and with the 4th-placed Eels another 2 wins away on the home stretch.
Manly smashed the Tigers 40-6 back in round 7. The Tigers are a better team now than they were back then, but the class of the Turbo-led Sea Eagles will be too strong, even though the Tigers hold a slightly better win-loss record at Suncorp than Manly (50% to 47%).
