NRL Match Preview: The game that everyone's been waiting for

It's a tale of two sides in very different positions that will come together to decide the 2013 Minor Premiership this Friday night, as the 1st placed Rabbitohs host the 2nd placed Roosters at ANZ Stadium.


The Rabbitohs are flying high and in fine form, while the boys from Bondi are coming off the back of a two-game losing streak and looking to play themselves back into form as the finals approaches.


Trent Robinson's side were dealt another blow just three days out from the clash with young-gun Roger Tuivasa-Sheck being ruled out through injury, after sustaining an ankle injury in the Round 25 loss to the Titans last Sunday.


Tuivasa-Sheck's absence sees Shaun Kenny-Dowall shifted back to the wing and Mitchell Aubusson one out from the backrow to centre.


Aubusson's move sees Aidan Guerra promoted from the bench to the starting side and Newtown Jets skipper Tinirau Arona joining the matchday squad for the massive clash.


Robinson's side faces a challenge big than no other in the game in the final round, with the Michael Maguire coached Bunnies recapturing their early season form at just the right time of the year.


Superstar fullback Greg Inglis is finding his feet after an injury lay off and the Bunnies are proving why they've long been considered competition favourites, with the boys from Redfern the favourites for the Round 26 clash.
