South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Brisbane Broncos Preview
They might be at opposite ends on the ladder, but there should be plenty of feeling between the Rabbitohs and Broncos on Thursday night.
After stumbling against some of the lower teams last year, the Rabbitohs proved to everybody that they are locked in with a 38-0 shutout over the Bulldogs last Friday night.
The Broncos, meanwhile, gave the Storm a slight scare in the opening 10-minutes before suffering at the hands of Ryan Papenhuyzen in another 40-6 landslide.
Although he’s been removed from the Broncos for close to three years, this is still another statement game for Wayne Bennett going up against not only his former club, but also his former assistant Kevin Walters.
While these two sides traded punches last season, it was all one-way traffic when they last met with the Rabbitohs walking away comfortable 18-point victors.
Souths will have to go about their business minus Cody Walker, but after Brisbane’s defence was carved up last week by Ryan Papenhuyzen and George Jennings, it’s unlikely the Bunnies will be too worried.
Unlike most teams, the Broncos are one of the healthiest and fittest sides in the league right now, but this is still a tough task against a red-hot Rabbitohs side scoring for fun.
Considering the Bunnies have covered the line three of their last four games as the home favourite against Brisbane, this one should turn into another Thursday night blowout.
