The Four Pointer - 4 things to know for Rd 15

Tomorrow night the South Sydney Rabbitohs will aim to make it seven wins straight when they play the Parramatta Eels at ANZ Stadium.

With both teams having contrasting seasons but coming off Round 14 wins this contest between old rivals is set to be an intriguing contest with plenty of exciting moments.

Here are four of those potential moments that you need to keep an eye for.

 

Nothing to lose

The Rabbitohs are favourites to beat a struggling Eels team, however coming off a positive win in Darwin last weekend Parramatta may have just found the flavour they've been looking for in 2018.

With not much to play for the Eels now have the luxury of going into the match detached from pressure, which provides them in the opportunity to play risk-free football making them a dangerous opponent for the Red and green.

 

Brothers rivalry

It's been said once or twice but the matchup between the Jennings brothers is definitely a battle to keep an eye out for.

Rabbitohs outside back Robert Jennings will be looking to take home family bragging rights when he tries to contain brothers George and Michael Jennings on Thursday evening.

The match is also significant for the Jennings family with Michael lining up for his 250th NRL appearance, but brother Robert is keen to spoil the party.

 

Origin Stars to make an impact

After being rested last week and with Origin II just over a week away, the Rabbitohs rep players will be itching to get out on the field and fine tune themselves ahead of a crunch State or Origin encounter.

Damien Cook, Angus Crichton, Greg Inglis and Dane Gagai will all be wanting to walk into their respective camps in tip-top form so expect a big game from the four stars.

 

Rabbitohs bounce back

Round 14 was not a clean win and the Red and Green troops will be hoping that they can click back into gear against a hungry Eels outfit.

Arguably their weakest performance of the season, the Rabbitohs will definitely look to get back to the high standards they know they can reach.
