🏟 Stadium - PointsBet Stadium
A captivating clash awaits on Friday night as the Warriors and Rabbitohs face off in Auckland. The Rabbitohs find themselves in a precarious position, having lost four out of their last five games. Another defeat could potentially push them out of the top eight, which would be quite unexpected considering their strong start to the season, where they held the top spot after Round 11.
The Warriors, on the other hand, have enjoyed a streak of three consecutive victories, each with a winning margin of 22 points or more. However, it is important to consider the quality of their opponents in these matches. The Dragons are going through a tumultuous period, the Raiders were overshadowed by the celebration of Jarrod Croker's 300th game, and the Dolphins have been struggling lately. The Warriors' recent wins have certainly boosted their confidence, and securing another two points in this upcoming encounter could potentially propel them into the top four.

It's worth noting that the Warriors have struggled against teams currently in the top eight since April, losing their last four matches against such opponents.

Additionally, the Rabbitohs have not suffered a loss in Auckland since 2012.
