  1. Just on South Sydney & their up & down form.
    Many said that they couldn’t win the premiership this season, with their current pack of forwards.
    With the backs they have, they’ve been good enough to Win many of the slightly easier games .
    Just as those tipsters predicted. Their forwards haven’t been up to the mark, against many of the top eight challengers.
