The Eels are one of two teams to win all three games, but the high-flying Sea Eagles loom as their biggest test yet.

Parramatta motored past the Broncos last week to protect their spot atop the ladder, while Manly punished the Bulldogs with a sizzling performance from fullback Tom Trbojevic.

These two traditional rivals will leave nothing in the tank at Bankwest Stadium.

Key Match-Up

The credit was shared among his teammates, but Eels fullback Clint Gutherson had a blinder against the Broncos as he seemed to pop up everywhere. He is pitted against Tom Trbojevic, who dominated the Bulldogs with a two-try performance last Sunday. It's set to be an enthralling No.1 battle.
