Thursday, June 25, 7.50 PM, Round 7, Netstrata Jubilee Stadium, Penrith Panthers take on South Sydney Rabbitohs NRL Match Preview
Penrith Panther’s willing and able to pull off the upset against the Melbourne Storm last Round whilst the Rabbitohs were looking very promising with their win against the Warriors, Penrith so far this season are looking very strong although losing to the Eels they beat the Storm convincingly, this shapes to be a tough matchup and one hard to predict as we think the Rabbitohs may be on the rise and up to the challenge.

The last time these two teams met the South Sydney Rabbitohs at home lost to the Panthers 18-19. Previously, in earlier years and most recent form, matches played between the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the Panthers have been split very close to even, all the statistics heading into this matchup slightly favour the Panthers but only just.
South Sydney Rabbitohs for the win.
