Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Friday 8pm (AEST)Last meeting: Round 8 2013 – Souths 26 bt Broncos 12 at Suncorp StadiumHead-to-head:  Broncos 21 Souths 6 Drawn 1Referees: Gavin Badger, Grant AtkinsTV: Live, Channel 9Ladbrokes: Broncos $2.05, Rabbitohs $1.77Betfair:  Broncos $2.08, Rabbitohs $1.78

Michael Chammas writes: The Bunnies will still be stinging from last Friday’s heart-breaking one-point loss to the Bulldogs. They have a few injury concerns and come up against a Broncos team high on confidence given the comfortable 32-6 win against Newcastle last week. This is a tough one to pick but the Rabbitohs should be able to bounce back and collect the two points.

Tip: Rabbitohs by 6

AAP writes: Inconsistent Brisbane can really make a statement about their premiership intentions in this game against NRL heavyweights Souths. Rabbitohs coach Michael Maguire dropped a selection bombshell in axing club favourite Nathan Merritt for Alex Johnson in a sign pasts effort mean nothing. Sam Thaiday (calf) remains sidelined for Brisbane, while the Rabbitohs welcome back George Burgess and Ben Te’o from suspension. There is sure to be a finals-type atmosphere at Suncorp Stadium for what could be a finals preview.

Key: Ben Barba. Which version of the enigmatic superstar will take the Suncorp Stadium turf?

BRONCOS: Ben Barba, Daniel Vidot, Jack Reed, Justin Hodges (capt), Dale Copley, Josh Hoffman, Ben Hunt, Josh McGuire, Andrew McCullough, Martin Kennedy, Alex Glenn, Corey Parker (capt), Matt Gillett. Interchange: Ben Hannant, Corey Oates, Jarrod Wallace, Jake Granville, Todd Lowrie (one to be omitted).

RABBITOHS: Greg Inglis, Nathan Merritt, Dylan Walker, Kirisome Auva’a, Bryson Goodwin, John Sutton (capt), Adam Reynolds, George Burgess, Apisai Koroisau, Dave Tyrrell, Kyle Turner, Ben Te’o, Sam Burgess. Interchange: Cameron McInnes, Jason Clark, Chris McQueen, Luke Burgess, Joel Reddy, Ben Lowe, Joe Picker (three to be omitted).

Good evening and welcome to our live coverage of Brisbane v South Sydney from the Cauldron in BrisVegas.

Shane Brady here with you for the next couple of hours as the Broncos hosts the Rabbitohs with both sides looking to improve on middling starts at best to the season.

A big crowd of 40-50,000 is expected on a balmy night perfect for football.

I was going to say thank God it’s Thaiday but big Sam is out for the Broncos as is playmaker Josh Hoffman, two key losses for the hosts, while Souths are close to full strength.

Will the big crowd be enough to get the Broncs over the line in what should be a tight encounter? Expect there to be more than smattering of myrtle and cardinal in the stands at Suncorp.

All eyes will be on the fullbacks Greg Inglis and Ben Barba in what shapes as mouth-watering match-up. Will the Queenslander from the remote outpost of Kempsey cut loose or will Ben Barba continue on his upward trajectory in his bid to return to the form that made him a Dally M medallist? Or a bit of both? Let’s hope so.

Head on the block time: I’m tipping Souths by two.

There has been a lot said and written about the merits or otherwise of playing matches on Anzac Day. I’m in favour because even if it focuses the minds of 40,000+ present in the crowd and countless more watching at home on the true meaning of this great day for one solemn minute, it is worth it.

They’re playing The Last Post now.

Hardly a soul moved, let alone spoke.

We will remember them.

A big roar goes up as the bugler finishes.

A female corporal belts out a great anthem without any of that X-Factor yo-yo-yodelling.

Now we can truly celebrate the freedom all those men and women gave their lives for.

Kick-off to come.
