Interchange (from): Vic Mauro, Jamie Buhrer, Shane Rodney, George Rose, Tim Robinson, Darcy Lussick.

The long list of injuries that has plagued the Rabbitohs was really rubbed in their face last week by a Sharks side that was missing Paul Gallen. It would appear that they have a bigger mountain to climb this week as they take on the second placed Sea Eagles at Brookvale Oval. Brett Stewart’s try scoring record at Brookvale is almost a try per game and it’s fair to say he’s pretty much back to his best. Against a weakened Bunnies line up and on home soil, a Brett Stewart try should be money for jam.
Mike’s Best Bet: None
