Manly Warringah Sea Eagles will move a step closer to securing a place in the NSW Cup finals with victory at Brookvale Oval this Saturday afternoon.
The Sea Eagles finally climbed into eighth spot with a 26-12 victory over the Bulldogs at home last Saturday. A win tomorrow and next week against sixth placed Newcastle will see Manly Warringah in the finals.
Tomorrow, the Sea Eagles tackle 12th placed Wentworthville in a danger game. The two sides met just 13 days ago with the Sea Eagles recording a 34-20 win at Ringrose Park.
Manly Warringah Coach Luke Williamson called on Sea Eagles supporters to take advantage of the free entry and get behind his players.
“It is always good to see some Manly flags waving in the crowd. It has been a while but we would love to see plenty of supporters there to cheer us on. The boys deserve it,’’ Williamson said.
“It is a must win game. We have been relying on other results over the past few weeks and it has come our way.
“We are now in a position where we are in control. We need to take control and win the game.
“The players enjoy the home ground advantage. Ït plays a huge part in our performance. The boys have done really well from where we have come from and they have been doing what they have had to do to keep going forward.
“It has been real pleasing and the results have taken care of themselves.”
The Sea Eagles are one win ahead of ninth placed Illawarra Cutters, who face the fifth placed Bulldogs at Belmore tomorrow night.
Kick-off at Brookvale tomorrow is 3pm.
