At the start of the season nothing was expected of Manly, while Penrith were listed as premiership favourites with the bookies.
How times have changed 18 rounds into the season – the Sea Eagles are flying high in third spot on the ladder after a superb year to date, while the Panthers are languishing four points outside the top eight and are coming off a horrific performance last week.
It was one of the weakest displays of the year from Penrith as they conceded 42 points to fellow finals hopefuls the Rabbitohs – not a team that has exactly set the competition alight themselves in 2017.
After compiling a four-match winning streak (those victories were to teams outside the eight however) and falling late away to the Cowboys, it appeared as if the Panthers were pushing towards a finals spot, but now they find themselves back to square one and facing a must-win game against Manly on Saturday.
The Sea Eagles now appear certainties for finals footy in 2017, but they will be aiming much higher and search for a top four finish for the remainder of the regular season.
Daly Cherry-Evans will be determined for a big game after he was controversially overlooked for the State of Origin decider, while the Manly team will be looking to improve on a gutsy four-point win in Perth over the Warriors last week.
Manly don’t have the best record against Penrith, but they are playing much better football than them at the moment and have only lost one player to Origin. The Sea Eagles have also lost just one game away from Lottoland this season, so going on the road doesn’t bother them. Expect Manly to tough out another win.
