Manly travel north of the border to face the Brisbane Broncos on Sunday afternoon, and they will be buoyed by the return of key players Jamie Lyon and Kieran Foran.
Unbelievably this will be the Broncos first day game in 2014, so it remains to be seen whether this will prove to be a blessing or a hindrance to them.
Both sides will be sweating on the availability of their Origin stars, with some doubt over Justin Hodges ability to back up these days, however once again we will assume all come through Wednesday night unscathed.
Manly have enjoyed success against the Broncos recently, having won 6 of the last 7 clashes played at this ground and have lost to the Broncos just twice at all venues since 2007.
One saving grace for Brisbane is the fact they have won their past 8 home matches played on a Sunday, so this may prove a nice change from their usual Friday night schedule.
Manly should be fit and raring to go after a freshen up with the bye last week, and with the return of key players they should take care of business here.
