South Sydney Rabbitohs: 2021 (Round 1 predicted team)​

In a series analysing who will line up in each position for all 16 teams in the opening round of the Telstra Premiership in 2021, NRL.com looks at the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

NRL.com says: Fit-again duo Patrick Mago and Braidon Burns will push for spots while a few of the reserve forwards are in line for the final two bench positions.

The addition of Jai Arrow and departure of Bayley Sironen could mean Cam Murray has to play on an edge.

New signing Josh Mansour is set to start on the wing while fellow veteran Benji Marshall adds depth to the bench.

Jamie Soward says: It's a strong side with no real question marks. The biggest competition will be who tries to force their way in on the bench but 1-17 this is a top-three side at their best.

Whether they need someone to relieve Damien Cook at times will be interesting. Maybe not to start the year but towards the back end, do they have an option if Cook goes down?

With Latrell coming back from injury they may look to give him a spell in the early games, either switch him to centre or take him off which might help Burns with a spot on the bench.

Murray will go to the back row because he can play anywhere but I wouldn't be surprised if Arrow plays up front with Burgess and Murray stays at 13 then someone like Keaon or Cartwright can play on an edge.

I reckon we have a pretty good team again this year. I think we'll make the top 4, along with the Panthers, Storm and Roosters.
Our first half of the year though our draw is quite challenging.

I think Raiders will make the top 4, not the Rorters.

Rorters will finish around 6th I think.
