South Sydney Rabbitohs vs North Queensland Cowboys
The South Sydney Rabbitohs take on the North Queensland Cowboys in this round 9 match up from the 2019 NRL season at the first ever NRL Magic Weekend at the iconic Suncorp Stadium and the great news for all Rugby League fans is that you can watch all of the action from this match, and from ever game at the NRL Magic Weekend via our NRL live streaming partners.
The Rabbitohs are having a fantastic season so far as they head into this Magic Round joint top of the table with the Roosters and as they play in the final match, they will know exactly what is needed of them to stay top but in all honesty they will likely need a win to stay there.
The Cowboys are in need of the win for other reason as they start the round 11th in the league but just 2 points outside of the top 8 and they will not want to let that gap get any bigger.
South’s will be wanting to take advantage of their head coach been in charge of the Broncos for so long and knowing Suncorp so well whilst the Cowboys will be wanting to take advantage of knowing the Queensland conditions better.
South’s have won each of their last 4 outings whilst the Cowboys have won just 2 of their last 5 matches but those 2 wins have come in their last 3 outings.
South Sydney make no changes.
Coen Hess starts in place of the injured Josh McGuire for the Cowboys so Dunn takes Hess’ role with Kyle Feldt on the wing. O’Neil goes to centre to replace Opacic.
Whilst the Cowboys have some great talent in their squad and on their day they can be a match for anybody, this is a Souths team full of confidence and who are playing some great rugby at the moment. When you couple that with their top players been in top form and with a winning mentality and you have a team that you just cannot back against.
