Happy Hunting Ground

The beautiful warm weather of Townsville has always been a happy place for the Sea Eagles, who have not lost here since 2016. 

The last time Manly played at Qld Country Bank Stadium resulted in a 46-18 win over the Cowboys in a game where Tom Trbojevic scored a hat-trick.

As for the home side, the Cowboys have won only three of their past eight games in Townsville.

We expect another real battle tomorrow: Anthony Seibold

Milestone for Josh Aloiai

Manly prop Josh Aloiai reaches another special milestone in his career when he plays his 150th NRL game against the Cowboys.

An experienced leader and respected player, Aloiai will provide plenty of starch up front again after being suspended from the round 14 match against the Panthers.

Still enjoying it: Josh Aloiai
