The third game of the ANZAC day triple-header features the in form Brisbane Broncos taking on the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
A big crowd is expected at Suncorp Stadium to witness one of the games of the round as two of top 2014 title contenders go head to head on one of the most significant days on the calendar.
The home side has made an unexpected start to the 2014 season. Their powerful forward pack lead by inform Captain Corey Parker has seen them climb to 5th on the competition ladder.
A clinical display against the Knights last weekend should give the Broncos a great deal of confidence coming into this clash, however with Sam Thaiday still on the side line with a calf injury and Josh Hoffman in doubt for this clash, the Broncos may struggle to reach the same heights as last week.
After a tragic one point loss to the Bulldogs last round the Rabbitohs will look to get back to winning ways against the Broncos and get their somewhat slow 2014 season back on track.
With the return of Ben Te’o and George Burgess the Rabbitohs forward pack will be back to its damaging best as this game shapes up as a battle of the packs.
Home ground advantage will go a long way in helping the Broncos across the line in what is sure to be an ANZAC day thriller.
