The Battle of Brookvale 2 - NRL Daily
It blew up deluxe last year, and tonight the much documented rivalry between the Manly Sea Eagles and Melbourne Storm comes to a head once more at Brookvale Oval. Both teams are playing down any chance of a repeat all-in and are trying not to get caught in the hype of such a big match. "I'm just looking at it as another game," Manly's Daly Cherry-Evans said in the lead-up. "If you look at battles too much you'll get caught up in the hype."
Watch our NRL Daily panel of experts from 6.00pm on NRL.com, as John Gibbs and Freddy Filter preview this blockbuster and predict who will remain standing after 80 minutes of top flight footy.
We take a look at all the Round 15 action in our weekend highlight wrap, with the Sharks and Bulldogs fighting out tough wins while at the bottom of the table Panthers and Eels continued their struggles.
To finish the show, "Gibbsy's Radar" singles out the Eels' Chris Sandow and analyses how his move to Parramatta has affected his form, his club and his coach. What does Steven Kearney have to do to turn their season around? "It's been a real challenge, disappointing," Kearney said after his team's latest defeat. "But it's not going to stop us from keep finding ways to move forward."
On the flip side of success, we'll look at Jeff Robson's rise at Cronulla. Sharks and NSW stand-off Todd Carney believes Robson has been a big factor in getting the Sharks to where they are this season. "Robbo's been great all year and the combination just keeps getting better," Carney said recently.
Get all this and more in tonight's episode of NRL Daily, the only NRL show that's on every night of the week.
