Saturday, July 28, 5.30 PM, Round 10, Bankwest Stadium, Sydney, South Sydney Rabbitohs take on Newcastle Knights NRL Match Preview

The long road to the premiership, Rabbitohs without Campbell Graham and Latrell Mitchell may help the Knights steal the victory which would see them climbing the ladder, big test for the Knights who have been flying under the radar, Souths, on the other hand, still trying to prove their contenders for this year’s premiership sealing a win against the Knights would only be evidence of that, statistically, there isn’t much to separate these two teams.

The last time these two teams met the Rabbitohs at home lost to the Knights 12-20. Previously, in earlier years and most recent form, 28 matches played between the Rabbitohs and the Knights split evenly at 14 apiece, all other statistics suggest this match will be an arm wrestle as no particular team holds an advantage over the other including wins at this venue.



South Sydney Rabbitohs for the win.
