South Sydney have extended their winning streak over Parramatta to five with a resounding 30-12 victory in muddy conditions at Accor Stadium on Saturday night.

On a night the Bunnies welcomed back star No.1 Latrell Mitchell, it was prolific winger Alex Johnston who shined, becoming the 13th all-time leading try-scorer in history with a first half double setting up an 18-6 lead.

Mitchell then chimed in during the second half to set up one of the tries of the night ahead of a possibly Origin III call-up on Sunday.

The Eels weren't at their best with ball in hand and gifted the home side a 12-point advantage on the stroke of half-time when a Mitchell Moses pass was intercepted by Johnston, who strolled to the line.

A scrappy second half from both sides was made better by Mitchell's effort to send Damien Cook over the line.

Rabbitohs halfback Lachlan Ilias put a disappointing evening against the Dragons a fortnight ago behind him by playing his part in the win.

Plays of the game

In the wet, greasy conditions there was absolutely no respect shown by South Sydney when Jai Arrow crossed the line and for good reason. With the ball kept alive on the last, a kick from Jaxon Paulo landed in the hands of Isaiah Tass, who found Arrow in a special Rabbitohs try.

Latrell Mitchell then sent NSW selectors and the Rabbitohs faithful a friendly reminder he was back with a weaving effort alongside Lachlan Ilias sending Damien Cook to the line.

What's next

Both teams will be in action next week during the bye-affected round. South Sydney have a six-day turnaround before facing the Knights in Newcastle. The Rabbitohs are certain to be without Damien Cook, Cameron Murray and Jai Arrow to Origin duties while Latrell Mitchell is also a chance if he receives a call-up.

Parramatta will take on the Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval next Saturday night in a match that could have limited impact with Origin with only prop Junior Paulo representing NSW in Origin II.
