South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Manly Sea Eagles Preview
Manly’s stunning 42-6 win over the Roosters last week has set the stage for an epic Preliminary Final on Friday night against the Rabbitohs.
The Sea Eagles were relentless from start to finish against the wounded Tri-Colours as Tom Trbojevic returned to form with a dominant two-try performance.
Looking to return to the Grand Final for the first time since 2013, Manly will head to Suncorp with momentum firmly on their side, but they’ll likely need more than that against a well-rested South Sydney outfit.
The Bunnies come in fresh from a momentum building win of their own against the Panthers two weeks ago, while they’ll also take comfort in knowing they’ve beaten the Sea Eagles in each of their last four meetings.
For seemingly the first time all year, both sides will head into this contest injury free – meaning we should be treated to another high-scoring game from a betting perspective.
Souths and Manly both rank second and third respectively in points scored this year, while it’s worth noting the last three meetings between the two have all gone Over the Total.
As far as the winner goes though, Souths should emerge victorious if they can exploit Manly’s right edge like the Storm did two weeks ago.
Alex Johnston enjoyed a big game against Manly when they met back in Round 3, and if the Sea Eagles fail to lock down that side of the field, the Rabbitohs should be able to work some magic.
