We round up the players thoughts - including Kiwi International Sam Moa, Skipper Anthony Minichiello and returning Kangaroos backrower Boyd Cordner - this week on tonight's opponents Manly, in what is sure to be a tough game at Brookvale Oval against our Grand Final opponents from last season.

In our last six meetings with the Sea Eagles we've claimed the competition points on five occasions, with the only loss coming in Round 4 earlier this season when they overcame us 8-0 at Allianz Stadium.

The boys come into the clash at almost full-strength with only Michael Jennings unavailable through injury, following the return of Boyd Cordner for the first time since Round 10.

Mitchell Aubusson will line-up in the centres in Jennings absence, with Cordner replacing Aubusson on the bench.

In the only other change to the side, former Sea Eagles Heath L'Estrange has been named as 18th man on an extended bench.
