New Zealand Warriors vs South Sydney Rabbitohs Tips


The Rabbitohs dominate this clash and also have questions to answer after last week's no show. I'm backing Souths to bounce back with a wide-margin victory.

South Sydney Rabbitohs Form


Two defeats in their last three matches have the Rabbitohs outside of the eight with a 4-5 record.

Having lost 23-22 to the Wests Tigers in an upset, Souths bounced back with an impressive performance in a 40-22 victory over Manly Sea Eagles two weeks ago.

It was another Jekyll and Hyde display last week, however, as South Sydney were beaten 32-12 at home to Brisbane Broncos.

Thomas Burgess is fit after missing last week, pushing Davvy Moale to the interchange.

Verdict

The Warriors have the second worst defence in the NRL and a dismal record against the Rabbitohs. With South Sydney backed to bounce back, I'm tipping them to cover a generous line.

Cody Walker excels in this fixture and is backed in the tryscorer markets.
