Some milestones:

Rabbitohs prop George Burgess is set to play his 150th NRL game this Friday night, all of which have been for South Sydney, since making his debut against the Bulldogs in round 13, 2012.

South Sydney hooker Damien Cook will play his 100th NRL game on Friday, having made his debut for the Dragons against the Tigers in round six, 2013.

Rabbitohs centre Dane Gagai will play his 50th NRL game for South Sydney this Friday evening, making his Club debut for the red and greens against the Warriors in round one last season. Gagai has played 183 NRL games to date.

I reckon Graham will be the centre and Gagai on the wing. I wonder if Su’A comes in for George? That’s probably the only changes I can see happening barring injury.

Geez I hope Gagai wears that Qld jersey underneath that Rabbit one this weak!

Can only hope this is a smoke screen. I’m going to feel sick to my stomach if we miss a GF because our last ‘marquee’ signing can’t actually tackle (and doesn’t score tries)

Fingers crossed for those two changes. George on the bench is really a waste given how little minutes he can play.

G Sutton and Gee get the other game. Would prefer not to have Atkins but …

Canberra’s record under Atkins is 24% better than their overall record in the time that he has refereed first grade.

Our record 4% worse under Atkins.

Atkins is fucked. He loves to control the game and our players don’t rate him

Gagai will play right Wing and Graham will play left Centre.

We will win this one. We may do it scrappily but we’ll still win it

A wins a win, I reckon we will defend for our lives like the Giants did the other day

How good would a win be

He’s named in the side, but I think Roberts will not play because of the thumb.

There is only Allan and Hiroti on the extended bench as cover (no Turner) -so I think Roberts will play

Roberts will play.
