HAVING SEEN SOUTH SYDNEY’S VICTORY last night, the Bulldogs team will be all too aware how important a win is for them. But one thing stands in their way – A Sea Eagles side on their home ground. The Sea Eagles sit 2nd on the ladder and have not lost a game at Brookvale since Round 26 last year. The victors on that day were the Bulldogs. Overall the Dogs don’t fair too badly at Brookvale having won 2 from their last 4 there.

We know a win for the Dogs against Manly is not beyond them, especially after what we saw from Manly last week against a 15th placed Eels side. I’ve always been critical of Manly when they seemingly play down to lesser sides and it seems like it will bite them in the backside soon enough. They will have to play better than they did last week if they are to win.

Mike’s Best Bet: None

Starting Bank: $2000, Current Bank $2694.41
