Rabbitohs vs Warriors Preview and Prediction

Both the Rabbitohs and Warriors will be hoping to make a push towards the top eight by winning this Round 6 clash at Bankwest on Friday night.

It’s been a disappointing start to the season for Souths across the first five games, but they snapped a three-match losing run in style last week, cruising past Gold Coast by a 32-12 scoreline.

Star recruit Latrell Mitchell played his best game in Rabbitohs colours and he should be relishing the chance to come up against one of the best fullbacks in the game in Roger Tuivasa-Sheck, who ran for 216 metres last week.

The Warriors – who are best described as consistently inconsistent – bounced back from a 26-0 loss to Penrith by carving up the Cowboys last week, emerging 37-26 winners.

Considering the most points the Warriors and scored this season before that match was 18, it was a surprising attacking display, which was led by half Kodi Nikorima.

But can the erratic Warriors register their first back-to-back wins since Round 10 last year?

I have my doubts. Souths got back into a groove last week and will be a much tougher and more disciplined side for the Warriors to break down.

With nine wins in their last 10 against the Warriors, it would be a big surprise if the Rabbitohs were to slip up on Friday night.
