South Sydney Rabbitohs will face off against Melbourne Storm at AAMI park on Saturday night. It will be a great contest for these two teams as both will be coming off wins from last week.
The Rabbitohs will be coming off a win against the dragons at home, after the controversy with Isaac Luke being benched as well as Adam Reynolds making a terrific return.
Isaac Luke remains on the Rabbitohs bench while Cameron McInnes will start as hooker. This will definitely be a test for McInnes going up against the Melbourne Storm, his agility and skill will be tested.
Scans have revealed that Adam Reynolds will be out again due to a broken thumb which is a disappointing and unlucky loss for Rabbitohs. They were also worried about losing Sutton to a suspected detached Retina, but is expected to play.
Billy Slater made a comeback for the Melbourne Storm last week which made a huge impact on their win against the Eels. Cameron Smith has been talking positively about Billy Slater’s return and stating he is still the best fullback in the game. This will be a test for Slater to prove Smith right in Saturday night’s game.
Will Chambers is a key player to look out for as he has been playing incredible rugby league. He will be looking to prove to selectors that he is in form to be chosen for the QLD Origin team, with his teammates including Billy Slater, Cooper Cronk and Cameron Smith.
Last time these two teams met Storm beat the Rabbitohs 27-14 at ANZ Stadium.
Prediction Melbourne home ground advantage, by 10
