The Broncos have had quite the start to the 2023 season; they have only lost one game and are sitting on top of the ladder. On Friday night, they looked every bit the premiership heavyweights in their win over the Eels.

Reece Walsh has been a revelation at fullback and has given the Broncos some spark in the backline. He will have to stand up this weekend as Ezra Mam will be missing through suspension. Mam is not the only Bronco that will miss this mouth-watering clash through suspension; Payne Haas will also be watching from the grandstand.

The Rabbitohs had to come from behind to beat the reigning premiers. All of their big players stood up, with Latrell Mitchell being a proper thorn in the Panthers’ side last week. His clash with Walsh will no doubt be the highlight of the game.

While he put on a masterclass against his old side last year, Adam Reynolds will look to notch another win against the Rabbitohs.
