Match preview:

The South Sydney Rabbitohs are looking to get back on the winners’ list when they take on the Canberra Raiders in the nation’s capital. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match from 3pm (AEST).

The Rabbitohs have lost their last two matches, going down 38-18 to the Broncos and 18-14 to the Roosters. Despite those losses, they’re still level with the Storm and the Roosters, on 32 points, but they are third on the ladder due to for and against.

The tenth-placed Raiders have little to play for other than pride, but they showed last week with their win over the Roosters that they haven’t put the cue in the rack for the 2018 season just yet.

If the stats are anything to go by, we’re in for a high-scoring match – these are the two best attacking teams in the competition, both scoring an average of 23 points a game.

It’s in defence where the difference lies, as Canberra also leak an average of 23 points a game, while Souths concede 18.

The Bunnies will be bolstered by the return of centre Greg Inglis, fullback Alex Johnston and winger Campbell Graham. That has forced a backline reshuffle, with Dane Gagai moving from fullback to centre, Braidon Burns going back to the bench, and both Tyrell Fuimaono and Richard Kennar dropping out of the squad.

For the Raiders, Joseph Tapine is out with a broken thumb, seeing Elliott Whitehead move from centre to the backrow to take his spot, and Michael Oldfield come in at centre.

Prediction
Souths by 10 in a high-scoring game.
