Experiencing their worst start to a season since 2010, the Broncos have made a number of changes due to form and injury with Kotoni Staggs, Gehamat Shibasaki and Jake Turpin coming into the squad.

Making a number of positional changes from the team named on Tuesday afternoon, Curtis Sironen will start at five-eighth in a reshuffle that sees Jack Gosweiski move into the second row, Apisai Koroisau revert to hooker and Manase Fainu going back to the bench. Similarly, last week’s debutant Abbas Miski replaces Jorge Taufua on the wing.

The Sea Eagles come into tonight’s contest in great form having won five if their past six matches, however injuries look set to test their depth with several high-profile players unavailable.

Welcome to League Unlimited’s coverage of Friday Night Football between the Manly Sea Eagles and the Brisbane Broncos in game three of the inaugural NRL Magic Round.
