Manly coach Trent Barrett spoke to the media this morning to preview Friday night's clash against the Canberra Raiders at GIO Stadium.

Barrett was pleased with the way his side played against the Sharks a fortnight ago but knows all too well the threat posed to his side from the in-form Canberra side.

"Canberra have a big pack and their back five are all really good ball runners but the focus will be more on what we can control and do them really well. I thought we were a lot better against Cronulla a fortnight ago and coming off the bye the boys are really fresh," Barrett said.
