South Sydney Rabbitohs - home team to continue top 4 fight.
The Rabbitohs have played quite well throughout their previous five matches. After a slow start to the season, they appear to have turned things around and are now prepared to compete for a spot in the top four. They defeated the Eels last weekend on the road by a score of 26-0. However, they are well aware that this game will be challenging, and as a result, they need to enhance their performance and their strategy to be successful against a Panthers team that is not tense. Even though the Panthers are without several important players due to injury and feel more confident due to their recent dominance in the league, the Rabbitohs should not anticipate an easy contest. They will need to ensure that they make the most of their opportunities if they want to come out on top.
Penrith Panthers - hopeful to get back to winning ways.
The Storm defeated the Panthers in a game that took place over the weekend. They have suffered their second defeat in the past three matches with that result. They will be hoping to go back to their best form when they travel to Accor Stadium in Sydney for a match that does not appear to be one in which they will be the favorite. In this encounter, the team in the first place will be without Pete Green, Taylan May, Jarome Luai, and Viliame Kikau because they are missing several key players who have been injured. On the other hand, we are hoping they can keep up their strong play against the Rabbitohs.

The Panthers won by 14 points the last time these two teams played each other in April. However, since then, several significant injuries have slowed the Panthers' momentum. Souths is favored to win, although the Panthers played well despite losing to the Storm last week. The Panthers are my pick to pull out a close victory.
