Rabbitohs v Raiders: Burgess to return for Souths

Maybe it was the simple fact they were playing their long-time rivals, but the Bunnies looked like genuine top-eight material with last week’s convincing win over the Roosters.

The challenge now is to back it up with another confident performance against a Raiders team which appears to be coming good after a disappointing start to the season.

The Raiders are aiming for a third straight win after losing their first four games. The Green Machine seem to have sorted out their defensive issues, conceding a total of just 12 points in their past two outings.
