Two of rugby league’s fiercest rivals go head-to-head as the South Sydney Rabbitohs host the Sydney Roosters. Join The Roar from 7:55pm (AEST) for live scores and coverage of the match.

With four rounds of football remaining, Souths sit in first position following last week’s 30-20 win over the second-placed Storm.

The Bunnies were strong through the middle of the park and tested Melbourne’s defence out wide, delivering an impressive win after a form slump.

The cardinal and myrtle have a tough run into the finals though, with the Broncos, Raiders and Wests Tigers following this game. Nonetheless, they are in the box seat to clinch their first minor premiership since 1989, currently sitting two points clear of the Storm and Roosters.

However, the Roosters are the comp’s form team, as shown by last week’s 26-20 win over the Cowboys. Their spine has clicked at just the right time, with James Tedesco and Cooper Cronk forging a lethal combination.

The Bondi boys are still without five-eighth Luke Keary though, who is replaced by Ryan Matterson, while Sean O’Sullivan looms as back-up off the bench.

South Sydney and Eastern Suburbs share a storied history, dating all the way back to the 1908 NSWRFL season. The two inner-city clubs have played in 239 matches, the Rabbitohs winning 124 to the Roosters’ 109.

The last time these old foes played was in Round 6, when Souths recorded a 26-14 win at the Sydney Football Stadium.

Prediction
The Roosters’ defence will hold out against a struggling South Sydney attack.
