South Sydney Rabbitohs will be going all out for three consecutive victories when they travel to take on the New Zealand Warriors on Sunday.
Souths will be pushing for three straight wins when they cross the Tasman to take on the Warriors this Sunday.
After a shaky start, the Rabbitohs have found form in recent weeks to defy the Wests Tigers in golden point before knocking over Canterbury on Good Friday to complete a 3-3 start to the season.
There has been gradual improvement in Souths’ game under new coach Michael Maguire and after years in the wilderness, the Rabbitohs finally look to be the real deal.
Greg Inglis has revelled in the switch to fullback and as he adapts to the demands of the position, his performances have improved week by week.
It has been a different story for the Warriors in 2012. They have shown only glimpses of the form that carried them into last year’s grand final and in recent weeks have suffered heavy defeats at the hands of the Sydney Roosters and Canberra.
Most disturbing for new coach Brian McClennan is the continuing trend of slow starts. The Warriors have invariably offered substantial leads to their opponents this season which has placed the team’s attack under enormous pressure.
Look for the Rabbitohs to score a try as First Scoring Play and back Souths to win by a 1-12 margin.
First Trycoring hopefuls include Kevin Locke, Manu Vatuvei and Jerome Ropati for the Warriors or Andrew Everingham, Greg Inglis or Matt King for Souths.
