Rabbitohs vs Broncos Preview and Prediction

South Sydney are heavily favoured to register a fourth consecutive victory when they play host to the lowly Broncos on Thursday night at Stadium Australia.

For the second straight week, there are some hugely one-sided games in the NRL and there’s not much cause for optimism if you’re a Broncos fan here.

Brisbane have lost each of their last 18 games when an outsider with the bookies and their $9.00 price with Sportsbet at the moment is an accurate depiction of their chances against the Bunnies.

Incredibly, the last time the Broncos beat a team in the NRL that wasn’t the Canterbury Bulldogs were indeed the Rabbitohs – all the way back on March 3 last year, before the pandemic struck.

Having lost their last 20 games against teams other than Canterbury, the Broncos are set for another long night at the office here.

Souths bring a three-match winning streak into this clash following their Round 1 loss to reigning premiers Melbourne, conquering Manly 26-12, the Roosters 26-16 and Canterbury 38-0.

The Rabbitohs strolled to victory last week against the embattled Bulldogs and we can expect a similar sort of match playing out here – even with Cody Walker suspended.

Latrell Mitchell has been sensational to start the season, creating at least one try assist in all of his matches so far, while he’s also crossed for three tries himself.

This should be an easy win for the Rabbitohs and I’d be surprised if the Broncos kept it even remotely close.
