Inspirational forward Steve Menzies needs just one more try to equal the long standing record for most number of tries by a forward in the history of the game.
Menzies will go for Don Burge's record of 146 tries when he plays for the Sea Eagles against Penrith at Penrith Park on Saturday.
A missed try on the advice of the video referee for the game against Brisbane two weeks ago has proved costly for Menzies in his quest to equal and ultimately surpass the Burge record.
However,Menzies is unconcerned and says the record "will come sooner rather than later."
The Manly side to play Penrith is unchanged from the side which beat Canberra 36-22 last Sunday.
The side is: Brett Stewart,Scott Donald,Chris Hicks,Albert Torrens,Nick Bradley-Qalilawa,Andrew Walker,Michael Monaghan (c),Daniel Heckenberg,Chad Randall,Jason King,Anthony Watmough,Sam Harris,Steve Menzies.Replacements: Kylie Leuluai,Luke Williamson,Solomon Haumono,Shane Dunley.
