Wests Tigers vs Rabbitohs Preview & Prediction

South Sydney go in search of their third straight win when they come up against a Tigers side soaring with confidence following their first win of the season on Saturday night at CommBank Stadium.

The Rabbitohs started the season slowly and had a tough draw, but they have an excellent chance to starting building some momentum and pushing towards the top four over the next couple of months.

Indeed, after back-to-back victories over the lowly Dragons and Bulldogs, the Rabbitohs have a soft draw for the next eight rounds, facing seven teams currently outside the top eight.

Win all of those games – which they are expected to do considering they’ve won 24 of their last 25 when starting as betting favourites – and the Rabbitohs will surely be nestled comfortably inside the top four come the Origin period.

Meanwhile, the Tigers are coming off a memorable win over the Eels on Easter Monday, with Jackson Hastings slotting the match-winning field goal with seconds remaining for the 21-20 triumph.

Moving Hastings to halfback and Luke Brooks to five-eighth proved masterclass from Michael Maguire, with both players producing their best performances of the season to guide the Tigers off the bottom of the ladder.

It showed what the Tigers can do if they muscle up in defence and showcase better discipline, but whether they can consistency produce that type of display is the question.

VERDICT:

If the Tigers can pick up from where they left off against the Eels, we could have a cracking game in store.

Souths are certainly deserved heavy favourites, but they haven’t exactly been blowing teams away this season. The Tigers have covered the +11.5 line in four of their last five against the Rabbitohs and four of their six games in 2022, so we’ll back Hastings and Brooks to lead them in another impressive display (Best Tigers +11.5 line odds $1.90 with Neds.)
