Manuokafoa Returns To The Bears As They Look To Move Up The Ladder

The Bears are due to make an appearance in this years' finals series, thanks to a grafting 24-22 win over the Sea Eagles on Saturday. The only thing yet to be determined is in which place They will finish, with 4th place (meaning a home semi final) within reach.

North Sydney have 2 games to go against the 2nd (Tigers) and 1st (Bulldogs) placed teams, and if the Grizzlies manage to knock those teams off they are a chance for 4th, not to mention the momentum created with 2 victories.

Manase Manuokafoa returns to the team after spending most of the season in NRL, and more recently being injured. Scott Geddes will be a big loss via suspension from last Saturdays match.

Also not to be missed The Bears Jersey Flegg team take on the Roosters at the Sydney Football Stadium on Saturday.
