Wests Tigers centre Chris Lawrence knows Manly will come out firing at Bluetongue Stadium tonight for more reasons than one.


The Sea Eagles will be out to make up for their surprise loss to the Gold Coast Titans at Skilled Stadium last Saturday. And if they needed any extra motivation, they will find it in their old rivals Wests Tigers, a fact not lost on Lawrence.


I think all the boys enjoy playing against Manly. There have been some good contests up there at Gosford and Im sure this one wont be any different, Lawrence said.


They are a strong side. I know a few people wrote them off at the start of the year but they pretty much have the same roster they have had for the last couple of years.


They have a strong forward pack, great outside backs, and good halves."
