In terms of team news, Manly are 1-17 with former Tiger Martin Taupau lining up in game #100. The away side have omitted Suli & Chee-Kam, with Watene Zelezniak to play centre and Twal joining the bench. Edwards will start with Lawrence pushed back to the interchange.

Will Manly continue their positive form this season or can the Tigers spring an unlikely upset? History is against the joint venture club with just 7 wins over 64 meetings across the three clubs that comprise their history dating back to 1970 at Brookvale.
