A pair of top four teams that looked like anything but title contenders last weekend have left tipsters perplexed heading into their round 12 meeting.

South Sydney conceded 56 points in a dismal day against Penrith, while Parramatta were humbled on their home turf by Manly. 

It'd be safe to assume a bounce back from one, if not both, of these teams when they meet on Saturday night.

In the eyes of the tipping panel in the other matches set down for this weekend, the Warriors have their work cut out for them against the Cowboys in Townsville and the Sharks aren't without hope of beating the Titans.

The Broncos, Raiders, Bulldogs and Knights all have tough assignments ahead of them.

On the tipping leaderboard, the top three have got a bit of breathing room with NRL Fantasy mystery man Lone Scout maintaining a one-point lead over NRL Teams host Niav Owens and Inside the NRL's Zac Bailey.
