Having received a reality check from the NRL's benchmarks, Manly young gun Tom Trbojevic warns his side's first year under coach Trent Barrett risks amounting to nothing.

After being been beaten by grand finalists North Queensland and Brisbane over the past fortnight, the Sea Eagles receive another acid test on Saturday against the in-form Cronulla.

Having been touted as top-four contenders in the pre-season, the Sea Eagles have slumped to 12th and Trbojevic admits they have underachieved in the first 10 rounds.
