South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Parramatta Eels Preview
A Saturday matinee between the Rabbits and Eels is the headline act this week as both sides hope to atone for last week’s disappointment.
Souths came up well short against premiership favourites Penrith, while the Eels felt the full force of Manly’s wrath in their own blowout defeat.
Both teams have typically been a strong bounce-back bet over the last calendar year, but this does look a more winnable game for South Sydney with a few stars potentially returning to the side.
Josh Mansour and Cameron Murray are both a good chance to play, while it’s worth noting the Bunnies have won four of their last five games against Parramatta, the most recent coming in last year’s Semi-Final.
The Eels showed some familiar problems last week in their loss to Manly as they again failed to string together two halves.
With the Rabbitohs needing a win to close the gap on the ladder, Parramatta’s inconsistencies could prove costly again.
