The airborne South Sydney Rabbitohs will face off against competition heavyweight’s Melbourne Storm in a blockbuster at Sunshine Coast at ANZ Stadium on Friday Night. The Rabbitohs have hit season best form after thrashing the Parramatta Eels last weekend, while the Storm proved their class to run over the top of the Manly Sea Eagles.

Rabbitohs Form & Team News


The South Sydney Rabbitohs have been nothing short of unbelievable in their last fortnight of football, thrashing the Eels 38-0 last weekend having demolished Many 56-16 the previous week.

Recording their fifth straight victory, the Rabbitohs have put in two of the most dominant consecutive performances by any team this season, winning their last two matches by a combined 94-16.

They will have to overcome the major loss of Latrell Mitchell who will be out for the remainder of the season after having surgery this week. Alex Johnston replaces Mitchell at fullback, while Dane Gagai returns at centre for Steven Masters.

Storm Form & Team News


Welcoming back superstar playmakers Cameron Smith and Cameron Munster, the Storm proved too strong last weekend as they recorded a 30-6 victory over the Sea Eagles.

While plenty of speculation has been focused about what Smith’s future holds, the Storm are beginning to gather vital momentum heading towards the finals.

Brenko Lee returns to the centres for Marion Seve (knee), and Riley Jacks joins the bench for Nelson Asofa-Solomona (calf).

Solomona’s injury has forced a reshuffle in the forward pack, with Tino Fa'asuamaleaui shifting to lock and Chris Lewis starting in the second-row.

The Storm team list for Friday can be found below:

1. Ryan Papenhuyzen 2. Isaac Lumelume 3. Brenko Lee 4. Justin Olam 5. Josh Addo-Carr 6. Cameron Munster 7. Jahrome Hughes 8. Jesse Bromwich 9. Cameron Smith 10. Christian Welch 11. Felise Kaufusi  12. Chris Lewis 13. Tino Fa’asuamaleaui 14. Nicho Hynes 15. Ryley Jacks 16. Albert Vete 17. Darryn Schonig 18. Sandor Earl 19. Max King  20. Aaron Pene 21. Kenny Bromwich

Rabbitohs vs Storm Match Up


Cody Walker and Cameron Munster are both Origin quality halves boasting some of the best offensive games in the competition. Despite both forming as integral pieces in their team’s success, Munster and Walker boast different offensive styles. 

Rabbitohs five-eighth Walker possesses the unbelievable ability to snuff out any hole or weakness in the defence. Boasting one of the cleverest short passing and kicking game in the competition, he possesses the speed, footwork and sheer unbelievable ability to open up a chance from anywhere. 

On the other side, Munster is a big-bodied half who thrives upon the Storm’s ability to beat their opposition to the ground. Playing behind arguably the best pack in the comp, Munster’s greatest strength is his running game built upon his career at fullback.
