Can the South Sydney Rabbitohs claim their tenth win in a row or will the Wests Tigers keep their top-eight hopes alive? Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match from 5:30pm (AEST).
The Tigers will be looking to celebrate Robbie Farah’s 250th game for the club in style and build on last week’s 20-16 upset win over the Dragons.
The victory reignited Wests’ dwindling season, with the eighth-placed Broncos just four points away.
The home side will need to find more points if they are to claim yet another big scalp though, as they come up against the best attacking team in the competition (Wests rank 15th for points scored).
Fortunately, they have recent history on their side, having won four of their past five against the Bunnies.
You would have forgiven South Sydney for being complacent last week against the Bulldogs. They were heading into the match off the back of the bye, without skipper Greg Inglis and had little to prove after winning eight-straight games.
While Anthony Seibold’s men started the game slowly, the end result rarely looked in doubt as they cruised to a 24-6 victory.
Motivation shouldn’t be too hard to come by this week though, with John Sutton expected to play his 300th game for the club.
Having overcome the lowly Cowboys and Bulldogs in recent weeks, this Saturday’s clash with the Tigers will be a welcome challenge.
With a finals spot within reach, desperation should see the Tigers snap the Rabbitohs’ winning ways.
Wests Tigers by 4.
