Panthers vs Rabbitohs Preview & Prediction

This Grand Final rematch couldn’t have come at a better time as the undefeated Panthers face a resurgent Rabbitohs outfit at BlueBet Stadium on Friday night.

Throw in Nathan Cleary’s comeback and the stage is set for a cracking night of footy at the foot of the mountains.

Incredibly, the Panthers are the competition’s only undefeated team after three rounds. They have the best attack in the NRL and they’ve done it all without their champion halfback. Not a bad start to their premiership defence.

Jarome Luai has stood up magnificently in Cleary’s absence to lead the side in attack, while Sean O’Sullivan will be unlucky to lose his starting halfback position, but someone has to make away.

In saying that, the Panthers haven’t set the world on fire. Their opening round win over Manly was electric, but they barely got past the Dragons (20-16) before rolling over the Knights once they were reduced to 12 men in Bathurst last week.

But you get the feeling they will lift for this one.

South Sydney were staring down the barrel of a 0-3 start to the season and facing the premiers in Round 4 before last week, but they produced a sparkling display to down arch-rivals the Roosters 28-16.

The Rabbitohs built on their superb final 10 minutes against the Storm the previous week to comprehensively outplay the Roosters and pick up a confidence-boosting first win of the season.

Latrell Mitchell is in electric tough following his suspension from last year’s Grand Final and will be determined to make amends here, while Cameron Murray is leading from the front in the forwards.

VERDICT:

The Rabbitohs look decent value at $3.00 for the upset, but you simply can’t go against the Panthers on their home turf.

Penrith have won their last 18 games at BlueBet Stadium and until proven otherwise, they have got to be favoured in every game they play at the venue.

The last two meetings between the teams were as tight as they come, so we’re backing another close and low-scoring affair (Best Panthers win & under 37.5 points odds $2.15 with bet365.)
