Manly, the team that has looked as good as any over the last two weeks, faces a moment of reckoning against the unbeaten Panthers on Saturday.
Heading into the match, the experts on the NRL.com tipping panel think they aren't quite at Penrith's level just yet, with just two of the 16 panellists backing an upset in the match taken to Bathurst.
In other matches this weekend, the tipsters are suggesting the out-of-sorts Raiders aren't without a hope against the high-flying Rabbitohs while it is somewhat surprising the in-form Cowboys are still outsiders against the Warriors.
The Storm and Eels appear the two locks of the week.
On the NRL.com tipping leaderboard, NRL Fantasy mystery man Lone Scout and Sky Sport NZ's Goran Paladin were the big movers last weekend.
Both scored six to move into a tie for second place along with NRL.com reporter Alicia Newton. That trio are just two tips behind leader and Channel Nine commentator Ruan Sims.
