Key game awaits Manly Leagues in Sydney Shield

Manly Leagues will be looking to bounce back quickly from a last start loss in round three of the Sydney Shield on Saturday, April 6.

The Sea Eagles, sitting sixth, tackle the fifth placed Mounties at Aubrey Keech Reserve, Hinchinbrook, in their third straight away game. Both teams have won one of their two games played.

Manly Leagues Coach Anthony Watmough said the team has responded well after not taking their chances in their 26-10 loss to Brothers at Penrith in round two.

"We left a lot of points out there. We need to be better at taking our opportunities as there were plenty we didn't take,'' Watmough said.

"We are putting ourselves in a position to score. We are just not pulling the trigger. But it will come.

"With the bye next week, these four point games are important as you can really set yourself up for later in the season, so we need to perform.

"It's been a tough slog on the road the opening few weeks. We will look forward to our home game after we get through this week."

Watmough said supporters should keep an eye out on new winger Munga Baruani.

"Munga is a good young kid who will add some speed and X factor to our outside backs,'' Watmough said.

"He is going through Ramadan at work and at training. His commitment to religion and his team are second to none."
