Canberra and Manly clash on Sunday in one of the matches of the sixth round of the 2020 NRL season.

Both teams rebounded last week to record wins after disappointing outings and will look to keep momentum rolling as the season begins to take shape.

Raiders Form & Team News

The Canberra Raider bounced back nicely after their shock loss to the Knights, beating the Tigers by eight points in a tightly contested match up. Jarrod Croker was at his sharp-shooting best, coverting both tries the Raiders scored and nailing a penalty goal to seal the deal.

The grinding win moved the Green Machine back into the top-four and within striking distance of top spot on the ladder. Jack Wighton scored the opening try for the Raiders, extending his scoring run to six tries from seven games.

Corey Horsburgh returns with Dunamis Lui dropping out of the 17, while Hudson Young returns from a lengthy suspension and replaces Bailey Simonsson on the bench.

Sea Eagles Form & Team News

Manly got its name back onto the winner's list last weekend against the Brisbane Broncos but the manner in which they won would be alarming to coach Des Hasler. After conceding the opening three threes of the game the Sea Eagles rallied back to win 20-18 against a side who had previously lost their last two games by 28 and 59 points.

Martin Taupau is out with a dislocated thumb, as is Moses Suli who has a finger injury. The pair are replaced by Brendan Elliot at centre and Addin Fonua-Blake at prop. Curtis Sironen returns from injury in the second row for Corey Waddell and Morgan Boyle joins the bench.
