    Thoughts on Thursdays game against the Rabbitohs. I am looking forward to this game. Latrell Mitchell, appears, to have regained form. Bring it on.

    No idea why there is two but I'll pick the older one. This is a danger game with Mitchell, Cook, Murray and Reynolds but definitely winnable if the boys keep up with the same effort and intensity.

    The same effort and intensity our pack should cream the Bunnies middle. Cody Walker always lifts against us. Latrell is coming into some form.
    If we don't treat Souths with respect they will pull our pants down. Still should be winnable if the effort is put in.
    Important to back up last night and beat Souths.

    The first post didn't show, so I made a second one. I am unsure how to delete the duplicate. My apology

    I think this game is a 50-50 proposition and the side who wants it more will probably get the two points.

    Every game is a big game, but this is the one that can really get our season on the front foot.

    Two points here takes us to 11 with the prospect of some easier games ahead, even if there are no easy games.

    I have friends, family, acquaintances who are all mad bunnies fan’s so this one is personally is big one for me. Well not just for me, the whole club and fan base, but I will be feeling so good if we get this job done this Thursday night.

    Round 7 is interesting because there are at least five games where basically the also rans season’s can be effectively ended in the higher placed sides win. Makes it so important we turn up and get the job done. We so need to keep winning and keep our noses in the top four and more importantly put a gap between us and the sides below us. Thursday night’s game is massive for us.

    When you look at the current teams outside the top 8 the Broncos are likely to be the side to go on a roll given there next thee games are against the Titan’s, Warriors and Bulldogs. Despite there form they are likely to win all three and get themselves up the ladder.

    Latrell Mitchell is in form, on his day he can tear teams to bits. If we carry the same form, that was shown in the Storm game, victory will be ours.

    Our pack is on fire this season thats where we have the edge and will win the game.Souths have some dangerous big fast outside backs if our forwards dont muscle up and bunnies get down our end with plenty of ball they will score some tries.Need to win and keep the momentum going top 4 is a must this yr a loss will put us back into the logjam.

    Souths competed well against both the Roosters and Storm to open the covid break but fell short in the final 15 minutes of both games. However in both those games they were missing Walker and Roberts and with Walker back they have since put big scores on two average teams. Don’t discount their pack, Burgess Cook and Tatola are holding the middles while Murray, Su’a and Lowe are dangerous out-wide.

    I don’t think you’ll find anyone underestimating the Wayne Bennett coach Bunnies. They will be a stern test.

    Should be another fast and open game although the condition of the ground might see to that.We need to play to our strengths and this involves keeping our game simple and structured. I think our fitness and overall conditioning should see our forwards once again get us another win by 12.

    Just need to hope we dont do what Raiders did. Lift for Storm and turn to shit thinking one game makes a season. Need to maintain that effort and work to improve each week.

    Completely agree.
    Last week will mean little if we can't back it up this week.
    Souths are dangerous but if we play with the same intensity as last week we should win.

    With storm we played them on the edges but with Rabbit's we need to play through the middle so if Leota n Tetevano can maintain the rage we should win by 10

    I would be planning to target Roberts if he plays.

    No idea seems logistically the exact same.

    Kogarah Park was a stand by venue in case of any unforeseen circumstances.
