Itís always a game on the calendar that both sets of fans mark down, the clash between Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles and Newcastle Knights.
Although at different ends of the ladder this game is sure to be a beauty. History tells us so. With all the turmoil through the week at the Knights, it is only sure to galvanise the squad for the match.
Manly coach Geoff Toovey will be aware of this and will no doubt have his troops fired up at fortress Brookvale.
In the clubs 43 meetings, Manly have the edge, winning 26 and Newcastle just 17. Newcastle go in to the match without Beau Scott, no doubt a big loss. Will his absence and the headlines throughout the week derail the Knights or will it lift the red and blue to another famous victory?
