South Sydney are looking to continue their near six-month winning streak when they face Parramatta on Friday.

While things are bubbling along nicely in the burrow, it's hard not to miss the GI factor and begs to ask the question - how good is Greg Inglis? Since taking over the captaincy at South Sydney , he has stepped up another level. In the first three rounds, GI has made a total of 452 metres, 15 tackles breaks, three try assists and scored two meat pies. It is no wonder he is heavily backed in the TattsBet Dally M Market . Against the Tigers last Sunday, it took some magic by Inglis to inspire the troops. His pass to Alex Johnston in the 35th minute opened the flood gates. Once they had the roll on, there was no stopping them, recording three unanswered tries to win 20-6. Darryl Millard has been named to replace Dylan Walker in the centres in his first game in almost six years.

In Round 1, it seemed the Eels had moved on since the ‘Hayne Plane’ took off. They defeated the highly-fancied Sea Eagles 42-12. But bad losses to the Bulldogs (32-12) and the Warriors (29-16) have seen them blow out to long odds in the NRL Futures Market . Against New Zealand last Saturday, their first half defence let them down. Conceding 20 points in as many minutes is hard to come back from, no matter who you are. But a spirited second half performance had Parra fans believing in miracles, with tries to Brad Takairangi , David Gower and Reece Robinson in the space of ten minutes. But alas, it wasn’t enough, with the Eels leaving Mt Smart Stadium with some work to do. 

It has been almost five years since the Eels have beaten the Bunnies at any venue, and even longer since they have toppled them at home. In their one and only encounter last year, Parramatta showed heart to go down 32-12. But that was with Jarryd Hayne! With the form South Sydney is in at the moment, TattsBet customers are confident the Bunnies can comfortably continue their winning streak, with the Rabbitohs at 13+ a popular choice.
