Manly just a 40-minute team? - NRL Daily
There are heading into the last round of the regular season on the back of five straight wins but on more than one occasion the Sea Eagles have looked vulnerable in the second half.
Tonight on NRL Daily, Brad Fittler looks ahead at the key points of Round 26 and questions whether the Sea Eagles are capable of staying in the contest for the full 80 minutes. In the final weekend of the regular season Manly face a Titans side that has already conceded the finals are beyond them.
“I'm excited about seeing the Sea Eagles keep their roll going,” says Fittler.
“But I have concerns though that they are only a 40-minute team.”
The Broncos, Eels and Cowboys, who sit below Manly on the NRL ladder, all recently outscored the Sea Eagles in the second half, and both the Broncos and Eels did so at fortress Brookvale, where the home team’s record is normally impressive.
Do you think the Sea Eagles are an 80-minute team or will they struggle when they face the top teams in the finals? Let us know your thoughts on twitter @NRL_Daily.
Also on tonight’s show we take a look at the Brett Stewart deal and vote on the Versus head to head match-up between Greg Inglis and Darius Boyd.
