Head to Head

The Rabbitohs have dominated this matchup, winning 10 of the last 11 clashes since 2012.

South Sydney have won four straight including a 40-12 victory when the sides met last year in the most recent meeting.

South Sydney Rabbitohs Form

South Sydney are up to third place - just a win behind Melbourne Storm and Penrith Panthers - after a run of six straight victories.

Wayne Bennett’s side have hit top form, defeating Parramatta 38-20, Newcastle 24-10, Brisbane 46-0, Wests Tigers 38-22 and North Queensland Cowboys 46-18.

Last week, South Sydney had to work hard to defeat bottom of the ladder Canterbury Bulldogs 32-24 in a high-scoring game.

South Sydney Rabbitohs Team News

The Rabbitohs have lost try-scoring machine Alex Johnston for several weeks due to a hamstring injury.

But his absence is compensated by the return of full-back Latrell Mitchell, who was rested last week after State of Origin duties.

Jaxson Paulo and Josh Mansour are recalled on the wings to cover the loss of Johnston.

Jai Arrow is also back after serving a one-game ban last week.

Campbell Graham will need to pass a late test to take his place. Taane Milne and Braidon Burns are options to cover him.

New Zealand Warriors Form

The Warriors' finals hopes have been all but dashed after a run of six successive losses.

The miserable run has seen New Zealand drop to 14th spot on the ladder, with the latest defeat a 30-16 loss at the hands of second placed Penrith Panthers.

It came with a heavy price too as injuries continue to mount.

New Zealand have also lost to North Queensland 29-28, Melbourne Storm 42-16, Newcastle Knights 10-6, St George Illawarra Dragons 19-18 as they blow a 12-point lead late in the game, and Cronulla Sharks 20-12.

New Zealand Warriors Team News

The Warriors are hit by injuries to Tohu Harris (knee), Wayde Egan (shoulder), Roger Tuivasa-Sheck (concussion) and Rocco Berry (hamstring).
