Both sides get a flock of returning players into their sides backing up from Origin: with Brian To’o, Isaah Yeo, Jarome Luai, and Liam Martin returning from the losing Blues side for the Panthers, while Dylan Edwards makes a miraculous return from the injury that ruled him out of the first Origin clash to be named 23rd Man. On the other hand Manly welcome back Jake Trbojevic and Haumole Olakau’atu alongside the victorious Maroons captain Daly Cherry-Evans.

The home side come into this off the back of a shock 22-10 loss to the Dragons at home after looking in control 10-0 up at half-time in the pouring rain. A near-full strength side will be looking to right the wrongs of last week and resurrect the Panthers’ formerly excellent home record. By contrast, Manly were afforded a bye after a hard-fought win at home against Melbourne in round 12 and will be well-rested with two weeks’ preparation coming into the game.

The win ended a three-game losing streak for the Sea Eagles, while Penrith have now lost two of their last three and are two points behind league leaders Melbourne – who have a game in hand. They do, however, hold the advantage over Manly in recent years and have won eight of the last 10 fixtures between the two sides, as well as eight of the last 10 as the home team.

Manly will need to replicate the strong start they had against Melbourne in round 12 if they are to have any chance in this one, with the reigning premiers rarely making a mistake two weeks in row. The key will be up front and – despite some excellent showings from the Sea Eagles’ pack this season (including Nathan Brown off the bench) – the visitors should be overpowered by the depth and intensity of a Penrith pack with something to prove this week.
