However, it came at a huge cost. George Jennings and Christian Welch picked up season-ending injuries, while Brandon Smith has also been ruled out for the foreseeable future. However, the Storm are at least boosted with the return of Cameron Munster, Harry Grant and Jesse Bromwich.
The Rabbitohs came away with a loss in their last match. The club lost to the Brisbane Broncos, last year’s grand finalists. They managed just a single score in the game. If South Sydney wants a chance at winning this game, it will have to be better on offense. That could likely happen with Latrell Mitchell set to return at fullback.
That will likely give South Sydney a necessary boost, but Melbourne is looking to make it two straight victories and seven straight victories in matchups against the Rabbits.
