South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Manly Sea Eagles, Round 16 2024 - Expert Prediction


The South Sydney Rabbitohs will continue their resurgence, rescuing their season with their fourth consecutive win and covering the line as the favourite against an injury and representative riddled Manly side.

Interim coach Ben Horby has got south back in the winning column and will look to keep the streak going, despite missing Latrell Mitchell and Cam Murray to Origin Duties. Lucky for Hornby is that Manly also have plenty of ‘Outs’ this week tumbleweeding with the fact that the Sea Eagles have been atrocious away from Brookvale. 

Souths have some good replacements on their side and will keep the momentum going by covering the 6.5 points as favourites as they attack a disjointed Manly defensive line that has not been as comfortable away from home this season. The Bunnies will put on 28 or more points even without their star fullback, attacking a new combination on Manly’s left side. 

  • Manly are 2 from 7 as the away team this season.
  • South have an average winning margin of 20 points over their past 3 games.
  • Manly concedes an average of 27 points per game as the away team.
  • Manly will have an untested Aaron Schoupp as the left centre

Head to Head


Manly got the infamous win in the opening match of round 1 in Vegas, beating Souths 36-24.

South Sydney’s season has began to swing in the right direction with three consecutive wins after beating the Broncos in round 15, 22-12. 

The Rabbitohs were conceding 34.8 points per game in the opening 10 matches of the season, reducing that number to less than half at 16.66 OPPG over the past 3 matches played. 

South Sydney’s attack has also looked more dangerous since Jack Wighton has come into the halves and Leatrell Mitchell has been back in form, averaging 36.66 points, much improved from the 16.2 points per game in their opening 10 matches. 

Credit needs to be given to Ben Hornby as interim coach, settling into his role and beginning to get the best out of his key players.

Manly have been a disappointment in my books this season after a good start to the year they have fallen back into their trap of inconsistency that makes their games hard ones to pick.

They have been a much better team at home winning 5 of 6 matches at 4 Pines Park, but are 2 from 7 playing outside of Brookie. The Sea Eagles are conceding an average of 27 points as the away team, compared with an average of 18.3 points conceded per game at Brookvale Oval. 

Losing Tom Trbjovevic makes things difficult for them, but to be fair it isn’t the only reason and changes need  to be made if they want to be playing in September. 

Manly Sea Eagles Team News


Daly Cherry-Evans, Jake Trbojevic and Haumole Olakau’atu will represent their respective states and will be out this week.

Rueben Garrick and Taniela Paseka will also miss Manly’s match against Souths due to injury. 

Larl Lawton will play in the halves, while Aaron Schoupp and Aitasi will come into the side. Corey Waddell will come into the starting side in the backrow. Caleb Navale and Ben Condon come onto the bench.
