South Sydney Rabbitohs and Wests Tigers have both opened their 2015 NRL campaigns with two wins from two games. The two sides go head to head on Sunday afternoon at ANZ Stadium, with the winning side a chance of being top of the ladder by the end of the round.
The Rabbitohs have impressed in their wins away to Brisbane and home to the Roosters. Against Brisbane they dominated the scoreboard and scored tries at will, whereas against the Roosters they had to fight their way back into the game and show they can still out muscle the best teams after the departures of Sam Burgess and Ben Te’o. However, they will be without captain John Sutton after he suffered a fractured jaw last weekend.
It is difficult to assess exactly where the Tigers are at after their opening games, as the Titans and Dragons were clearly struggling. You can only beat what is put in front of you, and the confidence gained from an unbeaten start under new coach Jason Taylor has given them a platform to build upon as they try to return to the final for the first time since 2011.
