Snake targeting top of ladder

The Sea Eagles are sitting comfortably in second position, but fullback Brett Stewart warns his side still have plenty of improvement as the NRL season approaches its half way mark.

Geoff Toovey’s men are seven and three to start the season and are well placed after 11 rounds, however, Stewart insists the Sea Eagles are far from content with their recent performances.

“With Newcastle, we gave them too much footy. We need to be a bit more disciplined and fix up our completion rates,” Stewart says.

“We haven’t really hit our straps yet and we’re still coming second on the ladder, so it’s a positive sign for us.

“There’s a little bit of quiet confidence amongst us. We’ve had a lot of injuries and still sitting second.”

The Sea Eagles have a good track record in Brisbane, having won six of their past seven matches against the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium.

They’ve also won nine of their past 11 matches against the Broncos overall, including the last four.

“I like playing up there, it’s a great spectacle for the fans and also for the players, it’s a great ground,” he said.
