Preview

The Rabbitohs are struggling having lost three of their last four matches and run into a Broncos side seeking to extend their consecutive win streak to three with a win on Friday night.

Sam Burgess escaped suspension after winning his case at the judiciary on Tuesday night in a major boost for the Redfern club. He’s without a doubt the barometer for Michael Maguire’s men, both emotionally and physically, as Souths need to find some assistance for Adam Reynolds, who has been in eye-catching form in the opening part of the season.

The Broncos were far from convincing last week against the Titans however Kodi Nikorima’s inclusion for the injured Ben Hunt got Broncos fans out of their seats as he and Anthony Milford eventually razzled and dazzled their way to victory.

Their elusiveness in the offensive line makes them both so exciting to watch however it’ll be on the defensive end that Wayne Bennett will be searching for more consistency.

The Broncos have scored 30 points or more in each of their last three matches against Souths, and while they may not reach that figure this week, they’ll still win quite comfortably.

Broncos by 12.

  1. Brisbane are the real pretenders in this comp. After flogging a worn out Roosters team 5 tries to 2 who were backing up after a four day turn around & minus a couple of key players, then fluke wins over the Gold Coast & South’s it really is obvious Wayne’s new girl friend is of more impotence then those players of his love child Darius. My tip Penrith to defeat the Ponies by 30
