South Sydney v Sydney Roosters | Thursday, March 23, 2017 at 8.05pm (AEDT), ANZ Stadium
The Roosters used to have all the big companies backing them for such a long time but the Rabbitohs now have everything the Roosters have and more.
They have great players, commercial support, a bigger membership base and stars promoting them around the world.
Even though the rivalry goes back years, it’s bigger more than ever now.
When I played for the Roosters against the Rabbitohs, I approached it as a normal game, but you could tell the fans really wanted the boys to walk away with a win.
Part of me wishes I was running out again this week.
You’re never going to replace injured Bunnies star Greg Inglis and the Rabbitohs are missing his direction in the background guiding players around the field.
You can see that some of the players have taken it upon themselves to step-up and try and fill that void.
I see the roosters taking this one home. Souths just haven’t found a rhythm and it’ll be a few more weeks before they get anywhere near their best.
