Can't see the team changing to much.

Saab may go for Pereira. We haven't got too much else - maybe Tariq back.

Don't think we've beaten a Top 8 team in 12 months.

Well then you’re due S J S J.

I would love your boys to beat Manly.

The refs will probs favour Manly though after Annesley admitting they got dudded again.

9/13 finally done right.

McInnes is a perfect lock.
Mcinnes is the only one in that 9-13 who actually offloads the ball in a tackle.
The rest are mostly run and die with it and the occasional rare as hens teeth offload but hopefully they will surprise us.

Yes - all 17 MUST do their best.

I feel McInnes will do really well at lock. As will Hunt at hooker. But we need to make a decision on it.

It's a good time to play manly with their injuries and suspensions.
.
The St George Illawarra Dragons will face the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Sunday, July 12 (6:30pm).

The inclusion of Tariq Sims and Jordan Pereira will go a long way in righting the wrongs of the past fortnight for the Dragons.

Ben Hunt has been named to start at hooker for only the seventh time in his NRL career, and for the first time since the 2017 preliminary finals, although he has played there for the Dragons over the past month from the interchange. Cameron McInnes will formally line up in the No. 13 jumper for the first time in his career as a result.

History has favoured the Dragons over the previous five seasons, them having won five of their past seven meetings with the Sea Eagles – although the Red V's last meeting with Manly (Round 14, 2019) ended in a 20-point loss.

Dragons have looked much better since the switch of positions for Hunt and McInnes, maybe Souths could learn something from this to improve Damien Cook's effectiveness?
