DCE – Sea Eagles
Manly sit 12th on the ladder after an inconsistent start to the season. The man they need to take desperate control of their attack is DCE.
Being the dominant half has not sat well with him for the beginning of the season and he misses the luxury of being next to a dominant ball player on the other side in Kieran Foran that demands so much more attention from opposition defences.
Along with this DCE wears a greater expectation and a lot more pressure from the fans because of the significant chunk he takes of the salary cap. Friday night versus the Raiders is a crucial game in order to get the Eagles season back on track and DCE needs to play well if they are to win.
