Sea Eagles vs Raiders Preview and Prediction

We could be in for another thrilling showdown between the Raiders and Sea Eagles as the two sides square off on Sunday afternoon at Campbelltown.

Canberra and Manly have developed quite the rivalry over the last few seasons after being involved in several nail-biting encounters.

It’s been the Sea Eagles who have emerged triumphant more often than not, winning five of their last six meetings. However, all but one of those victories have been by four points or less, including two in golden point.

With both teams in the top half of the table and impressing over the first five rounds, we can expect this game to go down the wire as well.

Manly bounced back from their disappointment of being robbed against Parramatta to recover from a half-time deficit to beat Brisbane last week, while Canberra toughed out a gritty 14-6 win over the Tigers to return to the winners circle following their big loss to Newcastle the previous week.

There’s star-power all over the park in this one, but I like the Sea Eagles as the underdogs. They are a tough team who usually keep games tight, while they’ve got the winning edge over Canberra in recent times.

I’m backing Manly in a close one – and don’t be surprised if Tom Trbojevic gets his name on the scoresheet again.
