Both sides are coming off the back of heavy defeats from round 19. 

Manly have plenty of rumours surrounding their coach at the moment and ironically it’s rumoured he could be off to the Panthers next year but Manly players will want to hit back this week for their coach as will Penrith players after being embarrassed by the Broncos in a 50-18 loss. 

This game is intriguing given the surrounding rumours of both clubs and their coaches. 

Main Key Match Up: Forward packs
This game will be won In the forwards. 

Both packs have showed they can mix it with the best at times (Penrith more often than Manly). 

Manly have Fonua-Blake and Taupau leading the way with their aggressive running style while Panthers have a bit of a newer look prop rotation with Fisher-Harris in the 8 jersey partnering James Tamou. 

Both sets of forwards will want to dominate early to allow their speed men time and space to do their jobs out wide. 

With Cherry-Evans and Cleary controlling for either side the team that’s wins this it’ll all come back to the platform laid by the forwards. 

Prediction: panthers by 4
I predict the Penrith Panthers to hit back and win in a tightly contested game.
