Round 19 preview: Dolphins v Rabbitohs

Round 19 of the 2024 NRL Premiership begins this Thursday night as the Dolphins continue their top-four hunt against the in-form Rabbitohs in Redcliffe.

At home, the Dolphins are favourites at $1.65 with PlayUp, while South Sydney offer some value at $2.38 with Unibet. The line is set at 4.5 points.

Wayne Bennett’s men had a much-needed bye in round 18, as they had lost four of their previous five matches. In round 15, the Dolphins were an established top-four side with a game in hand over the chasing pack. But in the past month, they have dropped down to sixth, with their odds to make the top eight coming out to $2 with leading NRL bookmakers.

Missing State of Origin pair Hamiso Tabuai-Fidow and Felise Kaufusi, the Dolphins will continue to start Trai Fuller at fullback, while enforcer Tevita Pangai Junior earns a starting spot. Winger Jack Bostock returns from concussion protocols, but hooker Jeremy Marshall-King is a big loss as Max Plath shifts from lock into the No.9 role. Josh Kerr, Ray Stone and Sean O’Sullivan have all been included on the bench.

The Rabbitohs won their fifth match in a row last Thursday, beating the Eels by 16 points at CommBank Stadium. Led by doubles from Jacob Gagai and Jack Wighton, South Sydney cruised to victory with three tries in each half.

After a horrible start to the season, the Rabbitohs now sit 13th on the NRL ladder and just a game outside the top eight. Nevertheless, online bookies have them at long odds of $5 to make the finals.

In a major blow for the Bunnies, star fullback Latrell Mitchell has been ruled out with a foot injury, while captain Cameron Murray has been selected for NSW. Jye Gray returns in the No.1 jersey, while Michael Chee Kam starts in the second row. Liam Le Blanc is added to the interchange.

Dolphins v Rabbitohs NRL predictions

Given the contrasting form of these two sides, the Rabbitohs will be confident of claiming another big scalp. As both teams are missing star players, the loss of Mitchell and Murray shouldn’t make too much difference. The Rabbitohs won the only clash between these sides last year, and there is value in backing them to do it again as $2.38 underdogs with Unibet.

The Dolphins have conceded at least 24 points in each of their last five matches, while Souths have scored 28 tries across their last five games. All signs point to a high-scoring affair, so back this game to go over 49.5 total points at $1.91 with top online bookmakers.

Playing his first season in the NRL, Rabbitohs winger Jacob Gagai has been a key player across the Origin period. The 28-year-old has six tries in eight games this season, including a double last weekend. With South Sydney expected to continue their excellent scoring form, back Gagai to get over the line at $2.15 with leading rugby league bookies.
