NRL Power Rankings: Round 13 2024

June 3rd 2024, 4:19pm, By: Scooby

NRL Power Rankings

The Origin period has seen some mediocre teams defeat others who are far superior. Such an opportunity should not be passed up by those struggling but it does create a false sense of security for punters and players alike. Don’t worry, Before You Bet is here to provide an accurate guide of how each team is traveling after 13 rounds of the competition. 

Also, make sure to check out our NRL Tips page regularly where you'll find our previews and best bets for every games of the 2024 season.

2024 NRL Power Rankings – Round 13

This Week Last Week Change Team
#1 2 +1

Melbourne Storm

Had a week off to lament their loss to the Sea Eagles before hosting the Knights on Sunday. Fortunate to jump to the top of the rankings but their most recent effort is not a guide to their capabilities. Watch out for this team to only improve as they get closer to the Finals. 

#2 1 -1

Penrith Panthers

You cannot read too much into the Panthers loss to the Dragons. A reserve-grade team was fielded and at 10-nil, it appeared as though they were justified favourites. Should consider that match a strong performance and get ready for a showdown against the Sea Eagles at home. 

#3 4 +1

Brisbane Broncos

Endured a Bye round on the back of a 2-point loss to the Titans. They will be out for revenge this week against the Sharks. Everyone involved with the club will be praying that their Origin stars get through Wednesday night unscathed. 

#4 3 -1

Cronulla Sharks

Missing key players was always going to make things difficult against the Eels but most expected the Sharks to be more competitive. It is now 2 consecutive losses following a 7-game winning streak. Capable of more at full strength. 

#5 5 -

Sydney Roosters

Failed to overcome a weakened Cowboys team at home. Missing key players also, the Roosters still had a strong squad to account for their opponents. Hopefully, that performance doesn’t become one they wished was not missed.

#6 6 -

Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles

A Bye came at the perfect time during a tough set of matches with the Panthers and Storm either side of it. Will want to continue making a point following their upset win over Melbourne at home. Need to continue to perform well without Trbojevic. 

#7 10 +3

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs

What an effort?! Down on players, the character of the Bulldogs was at the forefront of their play in their dominating win over the Knights. The challenge for them now is to maintain the momentum for their match against the Eels in Round 14. 

#8 7 -1

The Dolphins

Let a great chance against the Raiders slip away. They shouldn’t let their Golden Point loss get them down too much. They have a week off to prepare before heading south to face the Sharks. 

#9 9 -

New Zealand Warriors

Needed a break and time away from the spotlight. Will be full of confidence following their 4-point win over the Dolphins. Need to maintain their standard as they head to Townsville to face the Cowboys. 

#10 12 +2

North Queensland Cowboys

A spirited victory over the Roosters on the road. This club needed such a performance to maintain their momentum. While still not convincing, they will relish the momentum generated ahead of hosting the Warriors. 

#11 13 +2

Canberra Raiders

Scraped home with a Golden 1-Point win over the Dolphins on the road. Such an effort will make the Bye week even more enjoyable. Still capable on their day, that spirit should be the foundation of all games moving forward. Let’s see if they can maintain it against the Cowboys in Round 15. 

#12 8 -4

Newcastle Knights

An insipid display by the Knights whereby they were upset by the Bulldogs at home. This team is capable of far better and should be disappointed with this effort. Things to do not get any easier either, as they head on the road to face the Storm. 

#13 11 -2

Gold Coast Titans

Still on a high following their 2-point win over the Broncos. More will be known about the capabilities of their squad following their Round 14 match against the Rabbitohs. This is a game they should win. 

#14 15 +1

St George-Illawarra Dragons

Had more than just their opponents to overcome and bounced back from a poor showing against the Bulldogs in Round 12 with a win over the Panthers. Despite the personnel available, they will take the 2-competition points. They must maintain such an effort if they wish to defeat the Tigers on Friday. 

#15 17 +2

Parramatta Eels

Welcomed back Gutherson and Moses with open arms following their 12-point victory over the Sharks. They are a remarkably different team with their key players leading the way. A true measure of their capabilities will come against the Bulldogs this Monday. 

#16 16 -

South Sydney Rabbitohs

Riding high following their win over the Eels before a Bye last week. It will be important that they maintain their momentum against the Titans; a win would drag them off the bottom of the ladder. 

#17 14 -3

Wests Tigers

Unlucky to drop to last on the rankings. They are a team which is capable of better but has failed to deliver in recent weeks. On field performances will soon do the talking and they should be out to make a statement against the Dragons. 


Power Rankings Bet

The bottom 4 teams are poor at this stage. They will be making up the numbers in most matches should they not change their style of play. At the other end, there still appears only 5 teams capable of winning the competition and nothing else has changed after 13 rounds of the competition. 


Futures Bets

The Roosters showed their first real cracks of 2024 and $6 is too short to invest with confidence. The Storm are out to $7.50 and, of all the team in form, appear to be the best value on offer.


Round 14 – First thought

A host of games which will be impacted by the availability of players post-Origin. Perhaps it is not a matter of the strongest team but the club with the greatest depth. Next week may also give those teams who had the Bye last week an advantage. The purpose of this is to give the best advice so, perhaps, the ideal option is to watch Round 14 rather than invest.

Scooby's strength is assessing the overall team - what they offer across the field in a match and how the ethos of a club contributes to their success. Momentum also has a major impact on sports, and Scooby likes to explore this, while underpinning his judgement against a solid basis of statistical analysis. When combined with the aforementioned points, it combines for a holistic approach towards betting on rugby league.

Other sports he enjoys include Cricket, Horse Racing and NFL. There is a reason why Scooby ‘clicked’ with BYB from Day 1 - he loves his sport as much as we do.
