2016 Round 7 – Sea Eagles vs Eels
The game to watch for Round 7 has got to be tonight’s clash between the Manly Sea Eagles and the Parramatta Eels. Parra’s defence is best in the comp and will be sorely tested by Manly’s star-studded backline.
Tonight also marks a return to Brookvale for Eels captain Kieran Foran, which should be enough to help inspire his team to hit hard. Having also had the experience of switching clubs during my career, I can tell you that your first game back on your former turf does feel strange, but I have every confidence that Foran will get on with the game.
It’ll be a tight match but I think Manly, with their home-crowd advantage, will take it over the line against Parra’s great defensive line.
