Friday September 25th 2020 was the last time these two sides met.
Remember what happened?
I'm sure you do.
60-8 to the Bunnies.
Now admittedly, the Chooks had their fair share of injuries on that occasion, but there wasn't 52 points worth of injuries.
Tedesco & Keary played. So too did Josh Morris, Jake Friend, JWH, Boyd Cordner & Angus Crichton.
They were all there.
As was Sonny Bill Williams off the bench.
The Rabbitohs destroyed them and they didn't have that bloke in the #1 jersey that's already polled 4 Dally M medal votes this year, you know, Latrell Mitchell.
It was that night as well that Alex Johnston scored 5 tries including 3 in the last 8 minutes - unheard of!
The thing about the Roosters going into this week is that they've had two pretty soft wins against teams that won't be playing finals in 2021.
They've put up big scores against Manly & Wests.
Not a big deal in 2021 it seems.
The Bunnies fell asleep for the first 20 minutes of the season against the Storm and then were quite okay.
Last week they too beat up on Manly. Not as much, but they were always in control.
This week it's just an entirely different kettle of fish.
It's Friday night footy @ Stadium Australia, if the rain is gone you'd think they'll get a bumper crowd and it's the Roosters vs Rabbitohs.
This is massive.
This is a blockbuster.
And by the way, how good is Benji Marshall going? Seriously.
I think the Bunnies will be battle ready and this'll be a cracking match.
