Manly return to their home fortress of Brookvale Oval in this Sunday afternoon clash with injury ravaged Penrith.
The Sea Eagles remain the only side not to lose back to back games this season, and will be keen to get back to winning ways after last week’s defeat at the hands of the Eels.
Manly have a great record here against the Panthers, having won and covered the start in 7 of the past 10 matches.
They have also only tasted defeated at this ground once all season, so this has certainly been a graveyard for opposition teams.
Points have been difficult to come by in clashes between these two, with only 1 of the past 5 matches here tallying over 40pts, as well as just 4 of the last 10 at all venues.
This ground is usually quite heavy underfoot at the best of times, let alone with the recent rain, so I expect points will be hard to come by again and the current total on offer looks very enticing.
