The history between Eastern Suburbs and South Sydney stretches all the way back to the foundation of the New South Wales Rugby League in 1908 and there will be no love lost nearly 110 years after their first meeting.

The Roosters are on a high following their last-start win over the Cronulla Sharks, cruising to an impressive 28-10 victory off the back of some great leadership from Cooper Cronk.

 

 

There are still concerns with their forward pack however, as they struggle to lay the platform for their halves and are continually dominated by larger opposition.

This week will be a tough task against a physical Souths outfit, featuring the likes of Angus Crichton and the Burgess twins. However, the Roosters’ form suggests they can buck the trend.

The Bunnies came dangerously close to ending the St George Illawarra Dragons’ unbeaten run off the back of some dummy-half heroics from Damien Cook, but they couldn’t quite deliver in the end, going down 16-12 at Kogarah.

There’s a lack of creativity in Redfern and a 2-3 record after five rounds of competition points to inconsistency. The club are still without Sam Burgess, currently serving a two-game suspension, and will need Adam Reynolds to lift at halfback.

Souths have got history behind them though, with 112 wins to the Roosters’ 99 – with five matches drawn – in their 216 games played.

PredictionThe Sydney Roosters will extend their three-match winning streak against the cardinal and myrtle.
