NRL Match Previews - Sea Eagles v Broncos (Round 13)

06-06-2010 03:00PM at Brookvale Oval

Referee: Jared Maxwell and Chris James
Touch Judges: Jeff Younis and Russell Turner
Referee: Sean Hampstead

The Eagles will find themselves in a battle here. Brisbane have won three in a row and finally settled on a first 13. This cohesion is showing in their defensive performances of late and their forward pack has become brutal again whilst Darren Lockyer continues to make the big plays when needed. He will have to make plenty of them at Brookvale in Sunday's conclusion to your triple header.

This afternoon feast of Rugby League will end with the home side overcoming the loss of starting centres Steve Matai and Jamie Lyon to record a nail biting victory. Stay tuned because this match will go right down to the wire. Manly's forwards and interchange bench prove too strong for the visiting Broncos with Watmough and Stewart the standouts. Dean Whare gets a proper introduction to first grade as he faces millionaire Israel Folau. Eagles at the death.

My Man of the Match Prediction: Matt Ballin
My Tip: Manly 21-20
