Both these sides come into this match off the back of their first wins in 2018. Bulldogs while scrappy got the job done when an injury to Nathan Cleary happened to give the Dogs an advantage. Rabbitohs trumped the Sea Eagles 34-6 in a score nobody saw coming. Both sides will want to put their best foot forward this week and keep their winning ways alive. 

Key Match-ups: 
Damien Cook v Michael Lichaa 
This is shaping up to be he biggest match up of this game. With Cook putting in 3 great matches to open the year, Lichaa will want to get one up on his opposite number to give himself a chance to fill the number 9 for NSW. 

Sam Burgess v David Klemmer 
This is a big clash between the 2 forwards. Klemmer is looking to keep himself in the Origin talks while Sam is one of the top props/forwards in our game. There will be plenty of big hits between these guys so keep an eye out. 

Angus Crichton v Josh Jackson 
Rookie v seasoned player. Jackson will want to put a good foot forward this week and get one up on his opponent as NSW will be watching both of these guys carefully for the series in 2018. Church Tom is making a name for himself in our game while Jackson is a regular at NSW level. 

Prediction: 
After flogging the Sea Eagles the week before I can’t see the Rabbitohs slowing down just yet. They were unlucky in round 2 not to get a win. Rabbitohs by 12
