With South Sydney captain John Sutton out injured for a month, halves Adam Reynolds and Luke Keary are auditioning for the Rabbitohs number 7 jersey for the finals. 3 into 2 just won’t go, and online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has created some head to head markets that could go a long way to deciding who gets the job permanently.

Keary’s superior running game has him the $1.80 favourite to make more metres than Reynolds ($2.00) in Sunday’s clash with Newcastle.

Reynolds narrowly holds sway in the defensive side of things – priced at $1.80 to make the more tackles than Keary, who’s priced at $1.95.

There’s also very little in it in the tryscoring stakes with Keary $5.00 and Reynolds $6.00 to score the most.

“Keary has been dynamic coming off the bench lately but gets his chance to play a full 80 minutes for at least the next 4 weeks. There’s a lot at stake with coach Michael Maguire treating it as a trial for the halfback jersey when Sutton makes his return from injury,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
