If their 2019 battles are anything to go by, we're in for a treat when Canberra and Manly meet on Sunday.

The Sea Eagles prevailed by four points in each of the two thrillers played out last season.

The early form of both sides this year has them both sitting on the top half of the ladder and firming as title contenders.

They each returned to the winners' circle last week: the Raiders downed the Tigers while Manly pipped Brisbane.
