Rabbitohs face Dragons on Saturday

South Sydney Rabbitohs faces rivals St George Illawarra Dragons and the Cronulla Sharks do battle with the Penrith Panthers as the four sides target a spot in next week’s preliminary finals.

Six teams will be cut to four as the second week of the 2018 NRL Finals Series gets underway this weekend, with the Rabbitohs meeting the Dragons and the Sharks facing the Panthers.

Both the Panthers and Dragons limped into the finals series on the back of poor form and controversy, but they each lifted last week to earn victories over the Warriors and Broncos respectively - could they once again register upsets and come to within one game of the Grand Final?

South Sydney will be bitterly disappointed from their loss against Melbourne last week after leading inside the final 10 minutes, and one wrong move on Sunday could seem them exit the finals with barely a whimper. The Dragons meanwhile will be buoyed by their dominant triumph over the Broncos and will fancy themselves when they two teams clash on Saturday at ANZ Stadium.

Meanwhile, after losing to minor premiers the Roosters last week, Cronulla now find themselves in a do-or-die showdown with the confident Panthers at Allianz Stadium on Friday night.

Penrith were on a shocking run of form since sacking coach Anthony Griffin, but they were clinical enough to prevail against the Warriors last week - however, you’d think they’d need to reach another level if they were to outmuscle and out-grind the Sharks.

Defending premiers Melbourne will face the winner of Cronulla vs Penrith, while the Roosters take on the winner of the Rabbitohs and Dragons.
