Souths were impressive in round one, taking apart the Broncos and continued their winning run. Since winning the 2014 grand final the Rabbitohs have also claimed the Auckland Nines and the World Club Challenge.
The Roosters also caught the eye in round with a good victory over North Queensland. Not only was their attack effective, their defence against the likes of Jonathan Thurston was watertight.
Both Souths and the Roosters are missing key players from last year, the Rabbitohs Sam Burgers and Easts Sonny Bill Williams, but so far it hasn’t slowed them down.
These two foundation clubs share a long history and there is no love lost between then.
Expect fireworks in this meeting of two NRL heavyweights.
