Head-to-Head: Hopoate v Trbojevic

Canterbury Bulldogs fullback Will Hopoate and Manly Sea Eagles No.1 Tom Trbojevic go head-to-head in Round 23 of the NRL Telstra Premiership.

The Bulldogs will be aiming to consolidate their top four spot, and while Manly are a mathematical chance of making the finals they will largely be playing for pride.

The Bulldogs make an average of 1,611 metres per game - the second highest average in the NRL this season. The Sea Eagles average 1,536m per game.

The two fullbacks in this game are both rising stars of the NRL. Former Manly player Hopoate has established himself as the Bulldogs No.1 this season, while Trbojevic seems to have done the same at the Sea Eagles, taking over from Brett Stewart. Who will come out on top on Thursday night?
