Final Thoughts:

Game ResultRabbitohs: medium confidence. Some big potential inclusions for both teams, namely Sam Burgess for the Rabbitohs and Kieran Foran for the Bulldogs (among others), although from our viewpoint Sam B's is the most important. While their recent form has been poor with back to back losses against the Sharks and Storm, this is the game where we think the Rabbitohs turn things around. They are 6-0 against bottom four sides (comparied to 1-9 for the Bulldogs against top eight sides) and have a good recent record against the Bulldogs, winning the last four. As we write this preview they are sitting fifth on the ladder (Sea Eagles ahead for now) so this game is a must-win for them. Souths to win.
With The StartRabbitohs -8.5: low confidence. Souths have been a poor option with the start when playing at home this season (3-7) and overall (8-12), and while the Bulldogs have been better, they have not been stellar either. Coach Bennett should have the Rabbitohs up for this, given the importance in respect of their top four aspirations, and it is also a chance to repair their for and against a little.
Game TotalOver 38.5: low confidence.
For An InterestSam Burgess, any time try scorer for a few dollars.
