THE TEAM NEWS

MANLY-WARRINGAH SEA EAGLES

Head Coach: Des Hasler

Starting 13: T. Trbojevic, Taufua, Elliot, Parker, Garrick, Elgey, Cherry-Evans, Fonua-Blake, Koroisau, Taupau, Thompson, Sironen, J. Trbojevic – Interchanges: Fainu, Gosiewski, Waddell, Sipley – Reserves: Hodkinson, Tanginoa

Unavailable: Albert Hopoate, Taniela Paseka, Dylan Walker, Moses Suli

  • Manly produced their best performance of the season by quite a distance as they hammered New Zealand Warriors last week and now return to Lottoland after last week’s ‘home’ game was played in Christchurch.

  • The Sea Eagles ran in eight tries, Tom Trbojevic and Daly Cherry-Evans leading the way with a brace apiece, but it was Trbojevic that was the key component as he once again showed how important he is to the side.

  • Moses Suli has been stood down for disciplinary reasons which allows Brendan Elliot a chance in the centres but Des Hasler has named an otherwise unchanged line-up after last week’s success.

SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS

Head Coach: Wayne Bennett

Starting 13: Johnston, Allan, Gagan, Gagai, Graham, Walker, Reynolds, G. Burgess, Cook, T. Burgess, Sutton, S. Burgess, Murray – Interchanges: Tatola, Nicholls, Lowe, Turner – Reserves: Tracey, Kennedy

Unavailable: Dean Britt, Kurt Dillon, Adam Doueihi, Greg Inglis, Braidon Burns

  • South Sydney didn’t reach the levels of their previous two matches but got the win nonetheless as they overcame a dogged Gold Coast side to maintain their 100% record.

  • The Rabbitohs could not quite put the Titans to bed, as both sides managed to score four tries during the contest, but Adam Reynolds’ three penalties as well as an extra conversion proved to be the difference.

  • Greg Inglis will again be absent this week with his shoulder problem still causing him issues which sees Jacob Gagan called-up, whilst George Burgess will make his long-awaited season debut after completing his ban.

THE PREDICTION

South Sydney would have been relishing this trip before last weekend but Manly’s superb display against New Zealand Warriors makes it a different proposition. The Sea Eagles will need to maintain that level of performance if they are to get anything from this game against the unbeaten Rabbitohs. They will be without Greg Inglis once again, and with Braidon Burns also out Manly could try and capitalise on the edges, but Souths should still have too much.

Injury-hit Bunnies hold off fast-finishing Titans

South Sydney continued their unbeaten run in the 2019 Telstra Premiership with a 28-20 win over the Titans on Sunday, but the Rabbitohs are now …

Despite all the positive news, it is hard to defend some of the pinpoint kicks and passes that Souths pair Cody Walker and Adam Reynolds come up with. Lanky Rabbitohs winger Campbell Graham scored two tries on Sunday off the back of a 20-metre pass from Walker and then a gem of a corner kick by the No.6. That was all after Walker received on-field treatment by trainers for a left shoulder complaint in the 14th minute.

Souths followed the script of a top-four side playing a bottom four with a comfortable 18-8 lead at halftime.

After Walker’s heroics early, Reynolds sent a long-range pass to his right-side winger Allan for was the 20-year-old’s first try in the NRL. Throw in former Cowboy Ethan Lowe charging over for his first try in Rabbitohs colours in the first half and it was celebrations all round.

But the Titans didn’t go into their shell – it ended up four tries apiece.

Brian Kelly burrowed over in the 24th minute and on the stroke of halftime winger Dale Copley intercepted a Damien Cook pass to race 40 metres untouched. Cook was hit late by Titans forward Keegan Hipgrave and left the field for an HIA test. He returned at the start of the second half.

Kelly scored his second in the 58th minute, which reduced the Rabbitohs lead to 10 points at 24-14 before Don got the visitors within four at 24-20.

But two penalties to Reynolds, plus the unfortunate Titans figures of 39 missed tackles and the 9-1 penalty count against them, sealed their fate.

THE TEAM NEWS

SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS

Head Coach: Wayne Bennett

Starting 13: Johnston, Allan, Gagai, Burns, Graham, Walker, Reynolds, Tatola, Cook, T. Burgess, Sutton, S. Burgess, Murray – Interchanges: Nicholls, Lowe, Turner, Sironen – Reserves: Kennedy, Gagan

Unavailable: George Burgess, Dean Britt, Kurt Dillon, Adam Doueihi, Greg Inglis

  • South Sydney produced a brilliant second half performance to negate their awful first half effort as they comfortably saw off the Dragons to make it two win from two to start the season.

  • John Sutton and Greg Inglis both suffered knocks against the Dragons last week and despite both initially been named in the team, the latter has had to pull out with the shoulder injury he sustained.

  • Inglis’ withdrawal sees Dane Gagai shift to centre and Corey Allan come in on the wing whilst Liam Knight has been dropped after a poor showing last week and is replaced by Bayley Sironen on the bench.

GOLD COAST TITANS

Head Coach: Garth Brennan

Starting 13: Gordon, Don, Peachey, Kelly, Lee, Brimson, Jacks, Wallace, Rein, Boyd, Proctor, James, Arrow – Interchanges: Sami, Fotuaika, King, Cartwright – Reserves: Hipgrave, Copley

Unavailable: Jack Stockwell, Will Matthews, Tyrone Roberts, Ash Taylor, Nathan Peats

  • Gold Coast suffered their second loss to begin the season as they were beaten by Cronulla last week despite a huge game from Jai Arrow in which the lock ran for an outstanding 290 metres.

  • The Titans have only scored one try in 160 minutes of football so far and will be without their first choice halves pairing again with Tyrone Roberts and Ash Taylor failing to overcome their respective injuries.

  • In further bad news for the Titans and their spine in particular, Nathan Peats suffered a torn pectoral muscle in training this week and will be out for up to three months with Mitch Rein coming in at hooker.

THE PREDICTION

South Sydney have started the season in impressive fashion as they overcame a poor first half performance to sweep past the Dragons in the second period last week. They now host a Gold Coast team that look bereft of ideas with ball in hand and that spells danger for the Titans. They are likely to struggle even more with the absence of Nathan Peats and despite Souths losing Greg Inglis, they will win comfortably.

THE TEAM NEWS

ST. GEORGE-ILLAWARRA DRAGONS

Head Coach: Paul McGregor

Starting 13: Widdop, Pereira, Aitken, Lafai, Ravalawa, Norman, Hunt, Graham, McInnes, Vaughan, Host, T. Sims, Lawrie – Interchanges: Latimore, Dufty, Kerr, Leilua – Reserves: Lomax, Robson, Allgood, Pearson

Unavailable: Jack de Belin, Korbin Sims, Tyson Frizell

  • St George suffered defeat in their opening game of the season as North Queensland Cowboys proved too strong for them through the middle and they will face another big test here.

  • Tyson Frizell will be unavailable for at least a month for the Dragons after the forward suffered a ruptured testicle in last week’s loss to leave St George looking light in the pack for this contest.

  • Josh Kerr comes onto the interchange bench whilst Blake Lawrie is promoted to the run-on side at lock with the Dragons now missing three of their first choice forwards with Frizell joining Jack de Belin and Korbin Sims on the sidelines.

SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS

Head Coach: Wayne Bennett

Starting 13: Johnston, Gagai, Inglis, Burns, Graham, Walker, Reynolds, Tatola, Cook, T. Burgess, Sutton, S. Burgess, Murray – Interchanges: Knight, Nicholls, Lowe, Turner – Reserves: Allan, Tracey, Kennedy, Hiroti

Unavailable: George Burgess, Dean Britt, Kurt Dillon, Adam Doueihi

  • South Sydney Rabbitohs were impressive winners in their season opener as they beat fierce rivals and reigning Premiers Sydney Roosters to signal their intentions for 2019 in the notable victory.

  • The Rabbitohs came away from the game with a clean bill of health but have made a change to their 17 with Kyle Turner coming onto the bench in place of Corey Allan who is named as 18th man.

  • South Sydney won the game through the middle last week as they made 1,632 metres and that looks like being their big strength this season with George Burgess also set to return to the fold shortly.

THE PREDICTION

South Sydney got their season under way in the best possible fashion as they thoroughly deserved to topple last season’s champions, Sydney Roosters. The Dragons got rolled by a big Cowboys pack and with the Rabbitohs also boasting plenty of size through the middle, they could struggle again. With Tyson Frizell now added to the Dragons’ list of unavailable players, they are looking light in the pack and Souths can take full advantage to start the season with back-to-back wins.
