This is a game that is going to fly under the radar on the weekend most likely. That is because neither team have anything at stake.

Manly and the New Zealand Warriors sat together down in the bottom half of the table, safe from the wooden spoon and with no chance at a top eight.

So this one is just all about the pride at the end of the day as the season draws to a conclusion.

New Zealand Warriors Preview – Warriors look to stop the rot

It has been a three-match losing streak by the New Zealand Warriors following a 26-14 reverse against the Raiders last weekend.

Again, as has been a familiar story for them, they weren’t blown out of the water, remaining competitive but just lacking the finishing quality.

It has been one win in their last three home fixtures as well, that win was a superb one though, a 36-6 trouncing of the Newcastle Knights.

The Warriors have struggled for points in general throughout the season however, it has been an average of 15 per game from them.

That’s below the rate of what Manly Sea Eagles have produced, as they have delivered an average of 18 per game.

Our betting prediction:
Warriors 1-12 Winning Margin

(odds taken 0112 GMT, Wednesday 23rd September)


The New Zealand Warriors claimed a win in the most recent meeting between the two teams, which was just back in August.

That was a tight 26-22 win that the Warriors recorded on that occasion, giving them back to back victories over the Sea Eagles.

Three of the last four meetings now have gone the way of the Warriors as well but they are the 29/20 underdogs for this game * (odds taken 0112 GMT, Wednesday 23rd September).

The average losing margin by the Warriors this season is 17.7 points, two points worse than Manly’s record.


Manly Sea Eagles Preview – Sea Eagles to finish on a high?

Manly are on the same W7 L12 record as the Warriors are on as they go into this final match of the campaign.

They are actually in worse form than the New Zealand Warriors as the Sea Eagles have lost seven of their last eight games.

The one bright spark in that run of games was a victory at the Canterbury Bulldogs who may end up with the wooden spoon this season.

So the Sea Eagles are in a bit of a rut, but they have been scoring fairly well in their recent games which makes NRL betting interesting for this one.

Manly Sea Eagles have averaged 29 points per game in their last three fixtures, which has been a good return.

But the bad news is that they have conceded at an average of 36 points per game in their last five played.

Last weekend they suffered a hammering at the hands of the Gold Coast Titans, going down 24-42.

Manly Sea Eagles took quite a hit in that one so the 1/2 outright winner odds on them isn’t all that appealing for NRL betting* (odds taken 0112 GMT, Wednesday 23rd September).

Another issue with the Sea Eagles, and this correlates with their demise of form, is the amount of injury problems that they have had and continue to have.

They have been decimated really through injury and are at nowhere near their strongest.

So they are still giving up a lot of scoring chances to opponents and this could be another match in which they struggle to correct that.


New Zealand Warriors vs Manly Sea Eagles Betting Advice

We are going with the straight match outright win for the New Zealand Warriors in this one. While they aren’t scoring that well, they are competitive.

They are also taking on a Manly side who have been ravaged by injury problems and so the home victory makes sense.

Given that the two are locked together in the table, we can only presume this will be a fairly tight game.


Key Facts – New Zealand Warriors vs Manly Sea Eagles Betting Tip

  • New Zealand Warriors have lost their last three fixtures
  • New Zealand Warriors and Manly are locked together on 14 points
  • Manly Sea Eagles have taken one of the last four matches against the Warriors


However you cut it, a New Zealand Warriors +4 handicap for 21/20 is stacks of value for NRL betting* (odds taken 0112 GMT, Wednesday 23rd September)

To us they look the more likely of the two to finish the season on a high and walk away with the two points that will separate the two teams in the ladder.

For a little extra value we would consider a New Zealand Warriors 1-12 winning margin at 2/1* (odds taken 0112 GMT, Wednesday 23rd September).
