Plenty of smart judges are tipping the Rabbitohs to win their first premiership since 2014 and it's easy to see why. Last year they finished the regular season in style with a record 60-8 demolition of the Roosters before disposing of Newcastle and Parramatta in the finals.
They went down narrowly to Penrith in the preliminary final to set the platform for a bumper 2021 season under master coach Wayne Bennett. The Bunnies on paper are much stronger this year following the key acquisition of former Titans lock Jai Arrow and robust ex-Panthers winger Josh Mansour. Emerging lock Corey Allan's loss to the Bulldogs will hurt but a fully fit Latrell Mitchell packs more than enough punch to soften the blow.

South Sydney Rabbitohs history
South Sydney snapped an agonising 43-year premiership drought back in 2014. That extended their record total of titles to 21. But hopes of a new dynasty failed to materialise. They missed the play-offs in 2016 and 2017. They have fallen one game short of another grand final appearance over the past three seasons, sparking question marks over their ability to perform in the high-pressure games.
This is super coach Bennett's last chance to lead this club back to glory before he hands the reins to his loyal assistant Jason Demetriou. If they have a good run with injuries and Mitchell can stay injury-free, there will be no excuses if they fail to make the top four.
It's no surprise the bookies have pegged them as the early premiership favourites, with gun halves Cody Walker and Adam Reynolds running the show behind a powerful and mobile forward pack.
