The Sea Eagles and Broncos will clash in the second game of Magic Round weekend on Friday night with both sides looking to rebound after losses in Round 9.
Manly’s loss to the Titans was a disappointing one given they were at fortress Brookvale and it won’t get any easier with their next trip north classed as a home game when they host the ladder leaders.
The Broncos were comprehensively beaten by South Sydney with their second half efforts exposed in the past fortnight in a concern for Kevin Walters.
Traditionally these two sides pile on the points against each other in Magic Round with the Broncos scoring a 38-0 win last year while in 2021 the Sea Eagles racked up a 50-6 scoreline against their opponents.
Despite losses last week, both sides appear to have turned a corner in 2023 and will want to maintain their pace at the top of the table.
