Michael Chammas writes: It's hard to see the Rabbitohs losing three on the trot. Michael Maguire would have blasted his troops after the shock loss to the Tigers. The Raiders have showed glimpses or brilliance this season but they'll have limited opportunity to shine.
Tip: Rabbitohs by 12
AAP writes: South Sydney have never lost three games in a row since the arrival of Michael Maguire as coach in 2012, and will be confident of maintaining that record against a Canberra side that flatter to deceive. The Rabbitohs were well beaten by the Wests Tigers last week in a spiteful encounter, but the return of Greg Inglis, who went off after five minutes, will be a huge boost. The Raiders lost at home to the Gold Coast on Sunday, and will do so again if they replicate their insipid second-half display and won't be helped by the season-ending loss of Edrick Lee.
Key: Issac Luke is an integral part of this Souths side and his shoulder injury sees rookie rake Apisai Koroisau given a chance to make a name for himself. Can Canberra make it a tough day for the young Fijian?
