The South Sydney Rabbitohs will host the Parramatta Eels at ANZ Stadium on Friday night.
Both teams will be without key playmakers as they are out on Origin duties. Both teams will also be fired up after suffering losses last week in round 10.
The South Sydney Rabbitohs will be without their fullback Greg Inglis as well as their halfback Adam Reynolds. Adam Reynolds remains out suffering from a broken thumb which is a huge loss for the Rabbitohs as they coincidentally lose every time he is out. Alex Johnston will surprisingly line up for the Rabbitohs and take the place of Inglis in fullback, after unfortunately not being selected for Origin. Coach Michael McGuire has also stuck by his decision to have Isaac Luke start on the bench again. Joel Reddy returns on the wing and Jason Clark is also back named at lock. Ben Lowe shifts to the second row and Chris Grevsmuhl is added to an extended bench, alongside Daryl Millard.
The Parramatta Eels will be looking to impress away from home. They also come off a loss after outscoring the warriors with more tries but could not hold on to the lead due to there kicking game. Ryan Morgan replaces William Hopoate at centre (Hopoate out due to Origin), which moves John Folau on to the wing. Junior Paulo returns via the interchange for the injured Isaac De Gois. The Eels will be hoping to improve from their previous form as they have been looking very flat in the last couple of rounds.
Currently, the Rabbitohs sit as clear favourites for this game with the sporting odds being at $2.60 for Eels and $1.50 for Rabbitohs.
A big crowd is expected to attend the Friday night game, as ANZ Stadium is close to home for the Eels.
