Manly Warringah Sea Eagles could well know their season fate in the NSWRL Jersey Flegg Cup come Sunday afternoon at Belmore Sports Ground.
The Sea Eagles sit in 10th place on 20 points ahead, one behind this week's opponent in the eighth placed Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
The top five teams progress through to the finals with Penrith currently in fifth place on 24 points, equal with St George-Illawarra (sixth) and Canberra Raiders (seventh).
The Sea Eagles head into the match on the back of a 38-8 loss to the Parramatta Eels at 4 Pines Park last Friday night and will be looking for their first win since beating Newcastle 30-12 on July 16.
The Bulldogs are on a three-match winning streak and head into their home match at Belmore Sports Ground following a 22-14 victory over the Sydney Roosters last weekend.
The Sea Eagles were victorious 26-12 the last time the two sides met back in Round 3 after Manly trailed 12-10 at halftime to keep the Bulldogs scoreless in the second half.
Manly Coach Adam McEwen said it's been a tough time for his side.
"Our results over the past fortnight haven't been what we hoped for,'' McEwen said.
"With three rounds to go, we are going to compete hard to do ourselves and the club proud."
