Manly Sea Eagles vs Penrith Panthers Match Up 


Dylan Walker vs Jarome Luai will decide this match. 

No-one doubts that the clash between opposing halfbacks Daly Cherry-Evans and Nathan Cleary will be enthralling, but it's the battle between rival five-eights Walker and Luai that could prove decisive.

Walker's return from an ankle injury will add plenty of spark to Manly's attack and he'll be keen to make a mark. Luai has cemented his position as Cleary's right-hand man and is proving he has the maturity and poise to be a top-flight No.6.
