When: 16:10 | Sunday 20/08/2017

Where: ANZ Stadium

Preview:

The Bulldogs look ripe for the picking – again – against a fired-up Manly shocked last round by Wests Tigers. Especially with playmaker Josh Reynolds (calf), barnstorming forward Sam Kasiano (sternum) and Greg Eastwood (knee) sidelined. There is hope Reynolds will play again in the blue and white before linking with Wests Tigers next season but the five-eighth will definitely miss the Bulldogs’ final home game of the year. Canterbury have won nine of the past 12 games against the Sea Eagles. But few will back against Manly, who might yet repeat their 36-0 round-four rout of the Dogs. Canterbury have lost 10 of their past 12 games, including four straight.

Key: Can the Dogs finally spark their attack? They are yet to score more than 24 points in a game this season. The last time they failed to do so was in 1978.

NRL News:

Jarryd Hayne has been ruled out of Thursday night’s NRL clash against Parramatta due to an ankle injury.

The Gold Coast star took a knock in last week’s defeat to St George Illawarra and failed to train on the field this week, with the 29-year-old restricted to gym work.

It means Hayne may have played under Neil Henry for the last time, with reports claiming the Titans coach will be sacked after the clash with the Eels at ANZ Stadium.

It also means Hayne is yet to face Parramatta since leaving his former club to pursue an NFL career in 2014, having also missed their earlier meeting this season with an ankle problem.

Hayne was named at fullback but his absence is likely to trigger a backline reshuffle, with William Zillman or Tyrone Roberts capable of moving into the No.1 position.

It continues a tumultuous week for Gold Coast, who have been rocked by talk of a rift between Hayne and Henry, and suggestions that some other players are also at odds with the coach.

The Titans interviewed both Hayne and Henry individually on Monday to investigate their feud and subsequently called a snap board meeting to determine the best course of action.

It lasted three hours and provided no resolution, with a decision deferred until next week.

However, News Corp Australia reported shortly after the meeting that Henry would be the one axed.

Henry played down the situation in his press conference on Tuesday, saying he wanted to stay with Gold Coast and denying there was any rift with Hayne.
