The South Sydney Rabbitohs will look to make it four win on the trot when they tackle the Brisbane Broncos to open Round 5. Stay up to date with their NRL clash with live scores on The Roar from 7:50pm (AEST).
The Bunnies have been building over the last few weeks and have looked especially good over the last fortnight; knocking off the Roosters 26-16 and exploding for a 38-0 obliteration of the Bulldogs. They don’t play another of last year’s finalists until Round 8, so they’ll be looking at tonight’s match as another opportunity to tune up and keep their form high.
The Broncos were brought back to earth with a thud last week, getting crushed by the Storm 40-6 a week after notching their first win in 14 starts. Brisbane are still clearly a work in progress, but they’ve looked better in the early goings this year than they did during last year’s nadir – so copping back-to-back beltings would be a disappointing result.
Souths got the job done 28-10 when these sides met most recently, their third win from their last four matches with the Broncos. Brisbane have lost on their last four visits to Stadium Australia, conceding an average of five tries per match.
