Test forward Nate Myles expects a different South Sydney side to run out at Brookvale Oval than the one beaten easily by the Bulldogs on Good Friday.
Without their enforcer in Sam Burgess, the Rabbitohs were steamrolled by the Bulldogs pack. Burgess is tipped to return from concussion against the Sea Eagles.
“They will be reeling from last week. Although our win (against the Roosters) was a tough win and a gutsy win, we are still going to come up against a side that is going to be very aggressive and hungry,’’ Myles said today.
“With or without Sam (Burgess), they are going to be a different side.”
Myles said the big Rabbitohs pack would be a good test for the Sea Eagles forwards to see where they are at.
“I think our football has been improving every week. We are a new side with new combinations. We are getting better and there is still a lot to improve on,’’ Myles said.
“We have got some confidence out of the last two wins but there are a lot of areas we can work on.
“Last week is only going to be good if we can back it up again this week.”
Myles joined team-mate Brett Stewart in expecting five-eighth Dylan Walker to stand up in the absence of injured half-back Daly Cherry-Evans.
“Dylan is getting better every week. His football’s doing the talking, he has been pretty quiet, and that’s the way he goes about his business,’’ Myles said.
“If he gets the opportunity to stand up again, I have no doubt he will do it.”
