Manly's coach Des Hasler says all three of his injured Sea Eagles players will definitely play in Sunday's NRL grand final against Melbourne.

Halfback Matt Orford has an ankle injury, centre Steve Matai a shoulder complaint and lock Glenn Stewart a corked leg sustained in the 32-6 preliminary final win over the Warriors.

Hasler says Manly will be much better prepared for this year's premiership decider than last year when they lost to Melbourne 34-8.
