The first match of Round 18 tonight will see the Rabbitohs go up against the Roosters.
Despite sitting fourth on the point’s ladder, the Roosters will have to play twice as hard in order to win, with loss of halfback Mitchell Pearce, prop Dylan Napa and winger Blake Ferguson to Origin duty.
Even Boyd Cordner was called up for Blues’ State of Origin duties after missing two games due to a calf strain.
And after their monstrous win over the Panthers last week, the Rabbitohs are expected to bring some of that energy into tonight’s match.
Rabbitohs Coach Michael Maguire has left the lineup unchanged, believing this to be the team that will score them one more win.
