Round 23 kicks off on Thursday night, with new premiership favourites South Sydney hosting the Brisbane Broncos.
Souths were victorious 28-26 at Suncorp Stadium earlier this year and have won the last 2 clashes with the Broncos at all venues, however aside from that they have a poor recent record against their Queensland counterparts.
Souths have won just 1 of their past 5 clashes with Brisbane at this ground, as well as just 5 of the past 19 clashes at all venues.
The Rabbitohs were well and truly up for their clash with Manly last week and it will be interesting to see if they can bring the same intensity to this game.
Brisbane have a good record against Souths and in what shapes as a must win game for them, I believe they are worth an interest with the start on offer.
