Lyon returns for Sea-Eagles

Manly Sea Eagles head Coach Trent Barrett has named his side to take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium on Thursday night.

After going down to the Parramatta Eels in Round 22 by one point, the Sea Eagles come to ANZ Stadium looking to keep their slim finals hopes alive.

The Sea Eagles welcome back Jamie Lyon in the five-eight position from injury.

Dylan Walker moves to the centres and Lewis Brown moves back to the bench at the expense of Blake Leary.

Addin Fonua-Blake will start in the front row, Martin Taupau the back row and Nathan Green is on the bench. 

The inclusion of Lyon is a significant one for the Sea-Eagles who need to win all four of their remaining games to having any hope of playing finals footy.

“He looks like he is ok which is handy for us,” Coach Trent Barrett said.

“We have missed him over the last couple of weeks. It will be good to have our captain back.”
