NRL 2020 – Manly Sea Eagles v Parramatta Eels: Round 10 preview – NRL.COM

The injury-ravaged Sea Eagles’ season is starting to slip away and their task to steady the ship doesn’t get any easier against the ladder-leading Eels.
Manly have slumped to 10th place after losing three straight games.
A dubious forward pass call that denied them victory over Parramatta in round four will still be fresh in the home side’s minds.
While Des Hasler’s team is struggling without Tom Trbojevic and Dylan Walker, the Eels have managed just fine in the absence of star halfback Mitchell Moses to go on a three-match win streak.
Team news
Sea Eagles: Addin Fonua-Blake has another game left to serve on his suspension, while Tom Trbojevic and Walker are still about a month away from returning. Hasler opted for Cade Cust at five-eighth and Brendan Elliot at fullback last week but the coach hinted that more tweaks could occur.
Eels: Moses (calf) could be available for selection but coach Brad Arthur has indicated that Parramatta are likely to play it safe with their marquee man. Stefano Utoikamanu has been placed on a “COVID hold” away from training while the family and friends he hugged after his debut on Sunday await test results. If they’re cleared, the young prop will return to the fold before the Manly clash.
Key match-up
Daly Cherry-Evans v Clint Gutherson. Both teams will be looking towards their skippers for inspiration. Manly halfback Cherry-Evans endured a horror night in last week’s loss to the Dragons and will want redemption. Eels fullback Gutherson continues to lead from the front and may feel he’s got an extra point to prove against his former club.
Stat Attack
Good luck trying to stop Maika Sivo, Manly. The powerful Parramatta winger leads the NRL for line breaks (10) and tries (9, equal with Kyle Feldt). No Sea Eagles player features in the top 15 of either category.
