Penrith Panthers vs South Sydney Rabbitohs Live Stream, TV Channel, Tickets & Preview NRL 2018 Full HD
South Sydney rookie Adam Doueihi will have to overcome a daunting record for new halfbacks at the Rabbitohs in his NRL debut against Penrith.
Souths have it all against them heading into Saturday’s clash, having traditionally struggled in weeks after Perth trips.
They will also take on the Panthers without injured playmaker Adam Reynolds.
In his place Doueihi is set to become the 46th Rabbitoh to run out as a halfback since their most experienced No.7 Craig Coleman debuted in 1982.
And if history is anything to go by, the 19-year-old has a tough weekend ahead of him at Panthers Stadium.
Of the 45 players to have played No.7 for Souths in the 26 years since Coleman first wore the famous jumper, only nine – or 20 per cent – have tasted success in their first outing at halfback.
