have named an unchanged side for their Qualifying Final against the Bulldogs on Friday, with George Rose named as 18th man on an extended bench.

After a season plagued by injury the Sea Eagles have hit their straps at just the right time, with no injuries to report heading into the first week of finals.

Second rower Anthony Watmough left the field with a thumb injury early in the first half of Manly's win over the Titans but has pulled up fine over the weekend.

Co-captain Jason King was also unscathed after his return from a shoulder injury.

Coach Geoff Toovey said Watmough was taken off purely as a precaution and both Manly forwards will be fine to play in Friday night's blockbuster final against the Bulldogs.

"Anthony is fine, it was just a flare up of an old injury. Jason King also came through the match fine as well, we'll be looking to get a full strength side on the field next weekend."
