The Sea Eagles have been inconsistent so far in 2018, dominating at home but looking vulnerable on the road.
For the Tigers, consistency has been their modus operandi, with a 4-1 start to the season.
It will be tough for the joint venture returning to Sydney after defeating the Melbourne Storm in New Zealand – especially since Manly are unbeaten at Brookvale Oval in 2018.
The Sea Eagles delivered an impressive 54-0 win over the Eels in Round 2 before knocking off the Raiders 32-16 a fortnight later, although they are yet to come up against quality opposition.
Daly Cherry-Evans will be expected to carry his team after a heavy loss to the Titans in Gladstone, while also attempting to secure a State of Origin jumper.
The Tigers will be boosted by Josh Reynolds’ return from injury, the enigmatic livewire providing head coach Ivan Cleary with a healthy headache as a result of Benji Marshall’s form.
There is a bitter rivalry between these two clubs, dating back to the ‘Fibros versus Silvertails’ battles of days gone by, between the Magpies and Sea Eagles. Since the joint venture in 2000 however, these two teams have met 25 times with Manly winning 15 games compared to Tigers’ ten.
Wests Tigers have been victorious just once from nine outings at Brookvale Oval, going down at the venue in Round 19 last year 28-16 before returning fire with a 30-26 win at Leichhardt Oval in Round 23.
This will be a close, low-scoring affair, but expect the Silvertails to come home strong.
Sea Eagles by 2.
