South Sydney are another of the teams trying to make their way through the log-jam of sides competing for a spot in the bottom half of the top 8.
Their heart stopping golden point win against the Roosters last week will do wonders for their confidence which they will need plenty of this week against a Warriors side that are building on a 2-game winning streak.
The Warriors are one-up on the Bunnies in 2011 having beaten them by 6 points back in Round 11. This time it’s Souths with the home ground advantage which is always a bonus against a Warriors side on the road.
Mike’s Best Bet: None
