The South Sydney Rabbitohs travel to Newcastle to take on the Newcastle Knights. Join The Roar for live scores and commentary from 2pm AEST.

The Knights continue on their dream run, currently holding a six game winning streak and with two more home games set to come, it could possibly go to eight in a row. However, the Knights need to continue taking it one game a week and not look too far with finals football looming.

The Knights make one change to the side that crushed the Bulldogs, but it’s not the one everyone expected. Jackson Hastings is named at halfback despite suffering a syndesmosis injury, with Bradman Best returning from his calf complaint and replacing Enari Tuala in the centres.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs got back to winning ways, but they were far from convincing against the Dragons. The Rabbitohs need to complete their sets better before it gets too late and they miss out on a finals spot. The Rabbitohs make one change on their bench with Michael Chee Kam named on the bench, but we could see more changes with Tevita Tatola and Hame Sele listed on the reserves.

Prediction

Even if Hastings were to miss out on this game, I can’t see the Knights losing. Granted the Rabbitohs have plenty of attacking talent at their disposal, but they are not clicking at all. The Knights at home are far too good and the crowd will push them on to another win. Knights by 8
