  • South Sydney Rabbitohs lost out to bitter rivals Sydney Roosters in an enthralling contest last week in what was a second defeat in succession.
  • The Rabbits were not too far off in that encounter but will need to improve here if they are to avoid a third straight loss, although they have lost a trio of forwards with Hame Sele, Tevita Tatola and Shaquai Mitchell all ruled out.

Starting 13: L. Mitchell, Johnston, Tass, Graham, Tu’itupou Thompson, Walker, Ilias, Suluka-Fifita, Cook, Burgess, Koloamatangi, Host, Murray – Interchanges: Taaffe, Chee Kam, Moale, Cartwright – Reserves: Lovett, Hawkins, Duncan, Milne, Mamouzelos

Unavailable: Liam Knight (Injured), Siliva Havili (Injured), Jai Arrow (Injured), Hame Sele (Injured), Tevita Tatola (Injured), Shaquai Mitchell (Injured)


  • Manly Sea Eagles made it back-to-back victories to begin the season as they outscored Parramatta Eels in a game that contained 64 points last week.
  • The Sea Eagles look like they will be a real threat with the ball this season but will need to be better defensively if they are to compete at the top end of the ladder with head coach Anthony Seibold hoping for improvements from the same 17 that took to the field against the Eels.

Starting 13: T. Trbojevic, Tuipulotu, Parker, Koula, Garrick, Schuster, Cherry-Evans, Paseka, Croker, J. Trbojevic, Olakau’atu, Tuilagi, Aloiai – Interchanges: Weekes, B. Trbojevic, Bullemor, Keppie – Reserves: Sipley, Johns, Harper, Lawton, Condon

Unavailable: Jason Saab (Injured), Morgan Boyle (Injured)


South Sydney Rabbitohs were beaten by Sydney Roosters last week as they were edged in a fiery contest. There was little to split the pair in that game but it is now successive matches in which the Rabbits have struggled with the ball and that will be a worry here. Manly Sea Eagles have shown some superb signs in their opening two matches and despite losing the past six matchups between the two teams, they look like they are capable of taking advantage of Souths’ injury issues in the pack so it is worth siding with the visitors with the aid of a +6.5 start on the handicap.
