A mouth-watering clash kick starts Round 22, when leaders Manly face the in-form South Sydney Rabbitohs at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
This is the second meeting of these sides this year, with Manly victorious 14-12 in a close fought tussle at Bluetongue Stadium.
At neutral venues both sides have 2 wins apiece, however overall Manly have won 16 of the past 26 clashes between the pair.
3 of these 4 clashes at neutral venues have also failed to surpass 34pts, so we could well be in for another rugged encounter.
Manly are clearly the benchmark at the moment, however Souths recent form has been extremely good and no doubt they will be fired up for this encounter.
I expect this to be an extremely close game for most of the way, so taking the TriBet option seems the safe way to go in what shapes as an intriguing matchup.
