South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Sydney Roosters Preview
There should be no shortage of fireworks on Friday night when the Rabbits and Roosters meet in a potential Grand Final preview in Sydney.
South Sydney atoned for their opening loss to the Storm last week with a convincing 26-12 win over Manly, but Wayne Bennett’s side is about to face another tough test going up against a white-hot Roosters side.
The tri-colours have cruised to back-to-back victories over the Sea Eagles and Tigers so far, although it’s safe to say this game will also provide a serious evaluation of the Roosters’ finals credentials.
That point will only be drummed home even further in Roosters camp this week after the Bunnies pulled off a memorable 60-8 win when these two sides last met.
To add further intrigue, we’ll also see Latrell Mitchell take on his former club after the star fullback missed their most recent clash late last season.
On the injury front, the Rabbitohs are set to go without Adam Reynolds and Jaxson Paulo, while the Roosters are set to welcome back Victor Radley from a suspension.
As for the trends, the numbers paint a pretty compelling picture.
The Rabbitohs are 3-1 head-to-head as the away underdog against Sydney with the last two meetings between these sides both going over the total.
A win from either side wouldn’t surprise, with last year’s 52-point win looming in the background, the Roosters might be a touch under the odds here.
