Sea Eagles vs Broncos Betting Tips & Match Preview

The Sea Eagles and the Broncos clash on Thursday to kick off the fifth round of the 2020 NRL season.

The Sea Eagles will be smarting after they were denied a last-minute win over the undefeated Parramatta Eels while the Broncos are in free fall after two heavy defeats.

Sea Eagles Form & Team News

The Sea Eagles put together a strong 80 minutes of football last week, only to be denied on the final buzzer by an incorrect forward pass call that ruled out their buzzer-beating try. Manly will be keen to atone for that disappointing result against a spiraling opponent.

Manly will head into Thursday with an unchanged line up.

1. Tom Trbojevic 2. Jorge Taufua 3. Brad Parker 4. Moses Suli 5. Reuben Garrick 6. Dylan Walker 7. Daly Cherry-Evans 8. Addin Fonua-Blake 9. Danny Levi 10. Martin Taupau 11. Joel Thompson 12.
