NYC Preview: Round 3

The Dyldam Parramatta Eels and Manly Warringah Sea Eagles are both chasing consistent performances when they take each other on for Round 3 of the Holden Cup for 2014. 

The sides, who are both one win from two games this year, will kick-off at 10.45am at Brookvale Oval this Sunday, March 23, starting a triple-header of football for the day.  

In Round 2, the Eels were narrowly defeated by the Sydney Roosters 24-16 in slippery conditions at Allianz Stadium, after trouncing the New Zealand Warriors in their season opener.

Similarly, the Sea Eagles are also looking to avenge their Round 2 loss to the Rabbitohs, having notched up a comfortable win in Round 1 over the Melbourne Storm.  

For the Blue and Gold, Kaysa Pritchard will make his return to the Holden Cup side as hooker after a leg injury ruled him out last week, with Zach Dockar-Clay to move back into the halves with skilful Ryan Matterson. 

For the Sea Eagles, Latrell Schaumkel comes in to the side in the centres, with Charlie Taylor shifting to the wing to replace Charlie Buttrose.

Riley Travers comes in at halfback for Zac Nicholls, and Hugh Pratt and Jordan Latham come on to the bench, with Jackson Kelly 18th man.

Sea Eagles fullback Tom Trbojevic is one player to watch - he bagged a double in Round 2 and has been a standout at fullback for the team all season. 

His Eels fullback counterpart Nathan Davis has also been in great form for the Blue and Gold, scoring tries in both games this season and showing plenty of promise with the boot.
