Rabbitohs Head Coach, Michael Maguire, said that his team will need to step up a gear this Sunday against a red-hot Roosters side.
Both the red and greens and the tricolours came away with convincing and methodical first up wins against Queensland teams in Queensland in round one, setting up an enthralling round two blockbuster between the two traditional rivals.
“We’ve got to make sure we step up,” said Maguire.
“We’re obviously playing a quality team in the Roosters. Across the park they showed an expansive sort of game – they defend strong and we’re expecting them to be at their best.”
The Rabbitohs will take on the Sydney Roosters in their first home game of the season at ANZ Stadium on Sunday, 15 March at 4pm. Tickets are available now through Ticketek.
