There was a win last weekend for both the Rabbitohs and the Warriors in their respective matches. They are locked together on 4 points in the ladder this season so there will be a welcome two points on offer in this one. It will leave the winner in a more positive standing.

Can Rabbits make it back to back wins?

The Rabbitohs managed to stop the losing rot last weekend. After three straight league defeats, heavily outclassed in the last two of those, they responded with a win.

South Sydney got their breakthrough with a 32-12 victory over the struggling Titans. That was a welcome, easier match that the Rabbits had on their hands in that one. The Rabbitohs took their chances well.

Can they use that as a springboard for more as they take on the warriors? A positive for the Rabbitohs is that they are the top-scoring side in the bottom seven of the ladder.

They have tallied 92 points in matches so far this season, a vast distance between that and the 61 that the Warriors have put on the board. Last season the Rabbitohs claimed back to back wins over the New Zealanders.

Their star Latrell Mithchell was a big factor for them last weekend. The fullback hit top form and that just inspired confidence and belief throughout the rest of the team.

The Rabbitohs need more of the same from him. After their big win over the Titans, South Sydney are likely to field the same team. It has been nine wins in their last 10 against the Warriors.


Can the unpredictable Warriors cause another upset?

There was an unexpected win for the Warriors last weekend as they stunned the Cowboys. That was a big 37-26 success that the Warriors took as well.

It came after having struggled to put points on the board in matches this season. In their previous four games this season the New Zealand Warriors had scored just 24 points in total.

So that was a big upswing in returns for them and it leaves them level with the Rabbitohs in the Premiership. Their overall lack of scoring however, would still be a question mark over their chances in this fixture.

The likelihood is that the Warriors will stay unchanged as well, but they could get their star back David Fusitu’a into action. In their last eight defeats against the Rabbitohs, the Warriors have conceded heavily.

They have shipped at least 28 points in each of those last eight losses against the Souths. So this is no easy trip to the Bankwest Stadium for the visitors in which to try and keep momentum going.


South Sydney Rabbitohs vs New Zealand Warriors Betting Advice

We would be all over the South Sydney Rabbitohs in this fixture, despite both teams winning last weekend. The Rabbitohs have just looked a little more consistent and competitive overall this season than the Warriors.

The Warriors inflated their points-tally in matches with their big win over the Cowboys in the last round. But the truth of the matter is that they haven’t looked a big scoring threat for most of the season.


Key Facts – South Sydney Rabbitohs vs New Zealand Warriors Betting Tip

  • South Sydney Rabbitohs have won 9 of their last 10 against the Warriors
  • South Sydney Rabbitohs trail 16-17 in the head to head with the Warriors
  • New Zealand Warriors scored more points in their last match than they had done in their previous five combined


The head to head is with the Rabbitohs in this one and we would stick with them. So it is down to the handicaps and the Rabbitohs should be more than comfortable looking to overcome a -8 line at 11/10* (betting odds taken from Bet365 at 23:56 GMT on Wednesday, 17th June 2020)
