South Sydney host Sydney  on Sunday (AEST) in a match which many believe is a Grand Final preview. 

It's been six months since the Bunnies have tasted defeat, and coincidently their last loss came against the Roosters in Round 26 last season. Since that fateful Friday night, South Sydney have taken out the Premiership , Auckland Nines, Charity Shield and the World Club Series. Against the Broncos last week, the steam train showed no signs of slowing down, demolishing Brisbane 36-6. New captain Greg Inglis was at his very best, finishing with 129 metres off 15 runs, one try assist and a four-pointer for himself. If he stays fit and his halves (Adam Reynolds and Luke Keary) continue to perform out of their skin, the Bunnies are sure to finish in the Top 4 and again challenge for the Minor Premiership .

Like their cross-town rivals, the Chooks are one of the favourites for the 2015 Premiership , and with good reason. In their 24-8 victory over the Cowboys last week, they were clinical. Mitchell Pearce in particular started where he left off last year. His kicking game was pin-point, finding the open space with ease and keeping his team on the front foot with 232 kicking metres. His combination with new fullback Roger Tuivasa-Sheck is sure to blossom as the year progresses and the Roosters might even claim their third straight Minor Premiership come August. With great success last week in his squad, Coach Trent Robinson has named an unchanged line up. 

Two of the oldest teams in competition face off for an astonishing 235th time on Sunday. With both teams in imposing form, picking a winner in this is a bit of a head-scratcher. Instead, punters are opting to find value in First Try Scorer market, with support flowing in for Dylan Walker .
