Who’d have thought these two teams would be coming into this clash having each won their last three matches?

Manly were 0-2 and come into this game after knocking off the previously undefeated Roosters now welcome back prop Darcy Lussick for his first game this season.

The Sea Eagles appear to be going from strength to strength in both attack and defence.

Everything is waiting for the Dragons to drop off but they continue to defy their critics and sit second on the NRL ladder with the second-best defence in the competition, sitting behind the ladder-leading Melbourne Storm.

Their forward pack has continually marched them up the field while Gareth Widdop – in a contract year – appears to have found his grove this season.

Who wins? After two losses early at home, Manly look threatening once again. History says Dragons play poorly at Brookvale, but we like them just enough to come away with the points. It really is a toss of the coin, though.
