How to watch South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Parramatta Eels NRL live and match preview

Posted: 2 July 2022 1:00 pm

Both teams are looking to move away from the middle of the table in this week's clash.

SUMMARY: South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Parramatta Eels is on Fox League. If you already subscribe to Foxtel iQ with the Sports HD pack, you're good to go. If not, your best option is to stream live on Kayo Sports. You can watch for free using this 14-day trial.

With their Origin and Pacific Test stars mostly intact, it's back to business with Rabbitohs vs Eels as the NRL returns to a normal round.

Both teams have had an up-and-down season, though the Eels have managed more wins and are currently 1 spot above the Rabbitohs on the ladder. The Eels beat contenders the Roosters last round, yet lost to the lowly Bulldogs the previous game.

The Rabbitohs are currently split right down the middle, having won as many games as they have lost. But their patchy form has seen them both win and lose to teams below them on the ladder in recent weeks.

Rabbitohs vs Eels kick-off time

Rabbitohs vs Eels kicks off at 7:35pm on Saturday 2 July at Accor Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park. Although technically a home game for the Rabbitohs, it will be played in the heart of Eels territory.

Rabbitohs vs Eels match preview

The Rabbitohs came out on top vs the Eels last year on both occasions they met. This year though, the Rabbitohs have been way more inconsistent.

Rabbitohs vs Eels

Rabbitohs star Latrell Mitchell is back after his long hamstring injury, so that will give the Bunnies a boost. Even though Cameron Murray had a head cut in Origin 2, he's down to play as well.

The Eels have Junior Paulo backing up from Origin 2, while Dylan Brown, Marata Niukore, Waqa Blake and Maika Sivo return from the Pacific Tests. That means the Eels will have an unchanged side from when they beat the Roosters last round.

Both teams need to string a few wins together to lock away their place in the top 8. The Rabbitohs in particular can't afford too many stumbles, especially vs the Eels, as they have the Dragons, Sea Eagles and Raiders breathing down their neck to get into finals contention.

We think the Eels should have just enough to win vs the Rabbitohs, though it could be a close match.
