Sea Eagles keen to hit back hard in Flegg

The chance to quickly correct their ways to finish off teams is what is driving the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles Jersey Flegg Cup side in a tough road trip to Newcastle on Sunday.

The Sea Eagles suffered a 22-18 away loss to Melbourne last Saturday that saw their four game winning run halted.

"It was a hard loss. We had plenty of chances to win the game but just couldn’t ice the final pass,’’ said Coach Scott Kenna.

"Even though we lost, I was still happy with the way we defended with Melbourne scoring three of their four tries off kicks.

“We have a good challenge against Newcastle this week. We are just focusing on us and what we have to do to achieve a win again.”

The loss leaves the Sea Eagles in sixth position with seven wins ahead of the seventh-placed Knights, who suffered a 32-4 away loss to the Bulldogs last round.

The promotion of talented half-back Tylor Bunting to the Blacktown Workers team for the NSW Cup this Sunday has seen Kenna make a few positional changes.

Exciting full-back Blake Metcalfe shifts to five-eighth to partner half Travis May with winger Kallum Weatherall-Stacey now at the back.

“Kallum gets his chance at his preferred position of full-back where he has played the majority of his career before joining Manly this season.’’ Kenna said.

“Blake has played a lot in the halves in the past and did the majority of our pre-season at six. He will bring a running game and a smart short kicking game.”
