The New Zealand Warriors and South Sydney Rabbitohs clash at the Mount Smart Stadium on Saturday evening, in a game between the teams currently 3rd and 4th in the Premiership table respectively.
Both teams won on the road last week, with the Warriors coming away from their trip to Parramatta Eels with a 24-14 victory and the Rabbitohs securing a narrow 20-19 win at the North Queensland Cowboys.
The teams have already met once this season on the opening weekend of the campaign, with the Warriors running out 32-20 victors at the Rabbitohs’ NIB Stadium back in March. In doing so, the Warriors ended a six-match winning streak for the Rabbitohs between the two teams.
New Zealand Warriors v South Sydney Rabbitohs Team News
With regards team news, Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is expected to return as fullback for the Warriors, with Peta Hiku dropping into the backline or out of the starting 13 altogether as a consequence. Karl Lawton, Albert Vete and Anthony Gelling are all back in with a chance of selection, but Shaun Johnson is still a couple of weeks away from returning from an ankle injury.
For the Rabbitohs, Sam Burgess (glute) and Alex Johnston (hamstring) will both need to prove their fitness ahead of selection. On the plus side, Richie Kennar, Tyrell Fuimaono and Robert Jennings are all scheduled to return from injury, while Mark Nicolls, Braidon Burns, Robbie Farah and Kyle Turner are all available after having missed out on selection last weekend.
Warriors v Rabbitohs Betting Odds & Tip
The Warriors are just shading the match betting odds in terms of favouritism at 10/11 (1.91) with bet365. The Rabbitohs are 104/100 (2.04) with Unibet and you can back the draw at 20/1 (21.00) also with bet365. It looks too close to call in terms of the match result, so it might pay to look at some of the other betting markets.
The best bet here could be on the ‘Total Points’, with bet365 offering 10/11 (1.91) on Over 38.5 line. That looks a sound bet given that the last nine occasions these two teams have met, there have been a total of at least 40 points in the match.
