FOOTY FORM

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NRL -

SOUTHS will be look­ing to avoid back-to-back losses against the Drag­ons for the first time in seven years when they clash at ANZ Sta­dium this af­ter­noon. The Bun­nies went down nar­rowly 16-12 at Kog­a­rah ear­lier in the year. That loss was the third time in 2018 that they had lost by four points, with the same mar­gin in de­feats to Bris­bane and Pen­rith.

WOR­RY­ING SIGNS

THE Drag­ons are aim­ing to be­come the first team since Souths in 2013 to win nine of their first 10 matches to start a sea­son. A big con­cern for Paul McGre­gor’s side though is their ter­ri­ble record at ANZ Sta­dium. The Red V have won just three of their past 13 games at Home­bush, but this new-look side has yet to play at the venue in 2018.

RIP­PER RAPANA

JOR­DAN Rapana ($1.75) is short enough in the To Score A Try mar­ket to­day, how­ever, go­ing off his form against the Sharks you can see why. The Raiders flyer has crossed the line in four-straight games against the Raiders. If you want a bit more value then the $8 for him to be First Try Scorer is the way to go.
