St George Illawarra Dragons vs South Sydney Rabbitohs Preview
The line has opened at -21.5 points in favour of the Rabbitohs as they look to try and extend their winning streak to eight games on Saturday against the Dragons.
Wayne Bennett’s side put on an absolute clinic last week in their 60-22 rout over the Warriors that has likely silenced any doubt as to whether South Sydney is a genuine premiership contender.
With health now on their side, the Bunnies were impressive from start to finish as Tom Burgess, Jayden Su’A and Josh Mansour all picked up a double in a huge victory on the Sunshine Coast.
Unfortunately, life isn’t quite as enjoyable in the Red V though.
The Dragons somehow remain eighth on the ladder, but back-to-back blowout losses to Manly and the Titans has highlighted just how inept St George’s defence is with six games remaining.
These two sides haven’t met this year, but it’s fair to say the Rabbitohs hold fond memories of the Dragons.
South Sydney has won five straight over the Saints dating back to 2018, although the Dragons might feel a little better knowing Zac Lomax and Corey Norman are a chance at playing this week.
Even so, their inclusion alone won’t be enough to stop this Rabbitohs juggernaut.
The Bunnies have averaged 44 points across their last five games, a very worrying number for a St George outfit that has given up 30 or more in back-to-back weeks.
With an equally impressive 4-1 record as the away favourite at the line against the Dragons, this one could get out of hand.
