Manly and Canterbury round out the restart of the Telstra Premiership with a Sunday night showdown.

The Sea Eagles started 2020 with a disappointing loss to Melbourne but bounced back to upset the Roosters in round two.

As has been the recent trend in the past couple of years, the Dogs kicked off their campaign slowly, going down to the Eels and Cowboys in back-to-back Thursday night slugfests.

Canterbury's defence has been strong but coach Dean Pay will need to get more out of their attack to post their first win of the season.
