With just 10 rounds remaining, time is running out for the Panthers and Rabbitohs to make a push towards the top eight, although one team is certainly in a better position than the other.
Penrith are currently in ninth spot on the ladder, but they will be seething from a missed opportunity last week, conceding the game against North Queensland in the dying minutes.
That loss leaves the Panthers four points adrift of the eighth-placed Eels after they dispatched the Bulldogs on Thursday night, meaning this is a must-win game for Anthony Griffin’s men.
But it’s an even more critical game for the Rabbitohs, who are languishing in 12th position on the table – but they can draw level on points with Penrith if they emerge triumphant on Sunday.
Souths haven’t really made an impact all season and haven’t looked like challenging for a finals spot, but four points over the last fortnight with a win over Gold Coast and the bye have given fans renewed hope.
With an understrength Roosters side looming next week, there’s a great chance for the Rabbitohs to claim another four points over the next fortnight – which would propel them into finals contention.
But they still have to do the job on the field. Penrith had won four straight matches before last week, but they didn’t beat a top eight side during that run. The Panthers have been defeating the teams below them on the ladder recently, and I feel if they play a solid game, they will be too classy for the Bunnies.
Sam Burgess and Aaron Gray return for the Rabbitohs in the starting side, while Penrith have named an unchanged line-up from last week.
