Newcastle Knights are set to take on Manly Sea Eagles in their upcoming game, with Kalyn Ponga taking the lead. The round 13 match is sure to be an exciting one, particularly after the Knights‘ recent victory against the Wests Tigers. Fans are eagerly waiting to see how both teams perform, and if they can maintain their winning streaks.
Ponga’s return to the Knights following his absence due to a shoulder injury is no doubt a major boost for the team. His presence certainly helped the Knights secure their recent win against the Tigers, where he made a successful comeback scoring a try and providing two try assists. Ponga’s skills will be put to the test against a Sea Eagles team eager to turn around their current two-game losing streak.
Manly will be without key forward Addin Fonua-Blake, who was ruled out of the game due to a knee injury sustained during their match against the Parramatta Eels. Fonua-Blake’s absence will no doubt be felt but the Sea Eagles are a formidable team with plenty of talent in their backline. The likes of fullback Tom Trbojevic and winger Jorge Taufua will be sure to make their presence felt.
Despite the absence of Fonua-Blake, the Sea Eagles will be determined to make a comeback following their recent losses. With a series of tough games coming up, the Sea Eagles will be eager to secure a win against the Knights and gain some valuable momentum going into the latter part of the season.
There is no doubt that the Knights vs Sea Eagles clash is set to be an exciting match. With both teams bringing their A-game to the field, the fate of the game will ultimately come down to who performs better on the day. Fans can follow all the live scores and stats on the night, and cheer on their team until the final whistle.
