South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Newcastle Knights Preview
The Bunnies have hit a purple patch to start the month with back-to-back wins over the Bulldogs and Tigers, but they’re about to face a much tougher test on Saturday against a Knights team desperate for a return to form.
After defeating Manly the week before in a hard-fought battle, the Knights failed to show up last week against the Eels losing 10-4.
Prior to their 20-12 win over the Bunnies last year, Souths had the wood over Newcastle winning nine in a row.
Unfortunately for the Rabbitohs, they’ll take the field this week minus Latrell Mitchell, who’s serving a suspension for his run-in with Joey Leilua last week.
Mitchell’s absence opens the door for Alex Johnston to shift over to fullback, which could be seen as both a negative or a positive.
The Knights do represent value at the line though, especially considering they’ve covered in five of their nine games following a previous loss over the last calendar year.
With Sione Mata’utia potentially returning alongside Connor Watson, the +1.5 insurance is worth taking.
