The Rabbitohs will host the Melbourne Storm in game three, round five National Rugby League Telstra Premiership in 2023; It doesn’t get more competitive in round five as these two fight it out for another two points; both teams coming off wins, though the more controversial win goes to the Rabbitohs, winning in overtime, thanks to a forward pass call which denied Manly a try which clearly was not forward at all in most peoples opinions and also a big shout out to Josh Aloiai who dropped the ball giving the Rabbitohs perfect field position to kick the one pointer, thanks, Josh!
The Rabbitohs looked like a different team against the Sea Eagles, like last year’s team. Can they back it up against Melbourne though? no! the Rabbitohs will lose to the Storm!
