The Community Cup makes it’s official debut tomorrow afternoon in Gosford at Central Coast Stadium, where the Sea Eagles will take on the Sydney Roosters in support of Bowel Cancer Australia.
Coaches Geoff Toovey and Trent Robison have announced strong sides ahead of the last trial game of the pre-season. Manly front-rower Josh Starling highlighted the importance of the clash stating it was the Sea Eagles last big chance to have a crack at a strong opposition before the season opener.
“It’s massive… It’s our last chance before Round One to have a shot at a good, quality team, so everyone is pretty pumped up,” Starling said.
“Everyone is going to be fighting for a spot, [and] there’s plenty up for grabs.”
