Michael Chammas writes: Any hoodoo the Storm held over South Sydney in Michael Maguire's early days in charge of the Bunnies is over. This is going down to the wire but some Adam Reynolds magic will prove the difference.

Tip: Rabbitohs by 1

AAP writes:  After an up and down start, South Sydney have won four of their past five matches including a 40-18 thumping of Gold Coast on the road last weekend. The Storm picked up its fifth win of the year with a come-from-behind victory over Manly, the fourth time they’ve scored in the final five minutes to claim a win this year. The Rabbitohs’ form means coach Michael Maguire has picked an unchanged line-up for the second straight week. The Storm have one change with Joel Romelo playing his first game for the club in place of suspended five-eighth Ben Hampton.Key: Melbourne’s defence. The Storm have conceded 13 more tries than Souths this season and will need to tighten up to avoid the Bunnies opening up a lead that even Craig Bellamy’s never-say-die players can’t reel in.
