Season shapers: Rabbitohs
The Rabbitohs will get a good gauge of where they are at early on when they face the Sharks away in Round 1 followed by the Panthers away, the Roosters at Allianz and Manly at Accor Stadium.
The Rabbitohs have games against the Raiders, Titans and Dragons around Origin I before getting a bye the weekend before Origin II. They face the Cowboys four days after the second Origin and play the Bulldogs ahead of Origin III, with Cameron Murray certain to be on Blues duty and possibly Campbell Graham and Damien Cook as well, while Jai Arrow will be in the mix for the Maroons.
The run home
The Rabbitohs have a friendly final month with games against the Dragons (Round 24) and Knights (Round 25) before a bye in Round 26 and the traditional final round clash against the Roosters at Allianz Stadium.
And another thing...
The Rabbitohs are a perfect three from three at Magic Round and will look to keep that roll going when they face the Storm in Round 10. They beat the Cowboys 32-16 in the inaugural Magic Round in 2019 before knocking off the Sharks 32-22 in 2021 and the Warriors 32-30 last season.
