Manly have suffered a double blow ahead of tonight's heavyweight NRL clash with the Wests Tigers.

Prop Jason King and half Travis Burns have both been ruled out of the Brookvale Oval match. King will miss at least a month after undergoing knee surgery today while Burns will have scans on a back problem next week.

Sea Eagles coach Des Hasler says he won't be finalising his 17 until an hour before kick-off tonight, with winger Michael Robertson and hooker Michael Monaghan in doubt with a virus and forward Steve Menzies hoping to overcome a calf muscle strain.
