The Four Pointer - What to look out for in Rd 13

The Four Pointer - What to look out for in Rd 13

The South Sydney Rabbitohs host the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks in their second third v fourth showdown in as many weeks. 

It's sure to be an epic encounter with plenty of plots and subplots to keep your eyes on.

To help you with the all that is happening, check out four points you need to be aware of in the Round 13 clash. 

 

Strength in depth

Two weeks on the road out of state and now a match missing four key players to representative footy. It doesn't get much tougher for the Red and Green, however, the feeling around camp is an excited one rather than a nervous one.

With the Origin stars away on State duty many of the South Sydney Rabbitohs youngsters will get their shot at 80 minutes of football.

In particular, the likes of Braidon Burns will finally get an opportunity to line up in the centres for the first time in Cardinal and Myrtle. Cameron Murray will again get the chance to play a full match in his favoured lock position and young back rower Tyrel Fuimaono returns from injury on the bench looking to make an immediate impact after a lengthy absence.

They've shown it before that they can do it when they stand next to the best but now it's the time to show that they can do it together in the heat of the moment.

 

Blood in the water

It's third v fourth again for the Rabbitohs, however this time it will be our turn to hold off the challenge.

The Sharks have been quietly achieving the last month coming up with six straight wins but Souths aren't shy of that number with four wins on the trot themselves.

It sets up the match for one almighty explosion as the two points on offer could catapult each team's respective seasons to the next level.

 

Chuck out the form book

For all those out there looking to make an early prediction on this game, I suggest don't even bother and just simply enjoy the game of footy that is about to unfold.

Since the rivalry between these two teams began it's been back and forth year on year with the Sharks holding a very narrow head to head lead.

Another thing to note is that both sides are not the same teams they were last year with a heap of changes mixing up their structure.

 

Mr Worldwide Adam Doueihi

It's been quite a ride for Adam Doueihi since the beginning of 2018.

Making his debut back in Round 2, where he filled in for the injured Adam Reynolds in the halves, Doueihi has since played across the park filling in at dummy half and in the centres.

Tonight he is set to continue his world tour of the Rugby League field moving to fullback to cover for captain Greg Inglis and the injured Alex Johnston.

While some may be perplexed at his appointment in the number 1 jersey, Doueihi has shown so far that he is more than capable of playing across the park and there is no doubt he will be relishing the opportunity of playing more first grade football.
