A fight for 2 rugby league points, Manly Sea Eagles want them, Canterbury Bulldogs need them to kick off the season with a win, Manly started the season with a loss against the Storm leaking 14 points, they then played the Roosters the following week and pulled off the upset showing plenty of character for this season, The Canterbury Bulldogs have started this season slow though showing some signs of improved defence and competitive spirit.

Last time they met

The last time these two teams met the Manly Sea Eagles at home beat the Canterbury Bulldogs 18-10,  previously, in earlier years the Bulldogs have had the edge on Manly winning 70% of the meetings looking at the last ten games played between them, obviously Des Hasler was Canterburys coach during the majority of those meetings, I think that tells what could be the story for this game.
