Soward says: All eyes will be on Adam Keighran and he will want to try get one over his former team after he's been out of form in the last two weeks in the NRL. For the Panthers, they just keep rolling at the moment, and although it's a tough trip over to Mt Smart Stadium I think they'll still get the job done. Penrith by 4.

    Interchange for Rabbitohs is number 16 Brock Gray
  • Interchange for Sea Eagles is number 22 Denzal Tonise
    Interchange for Rabbitohs is number 17 Lyndon Hills

Soward says: Trent Hodkinson improved their attack last week but I think they will struggle against an in-form South Sydney side. The Rabbitohs were without Connor Tracey last week but were still able to get a win over the Jets and they have strong forwards who are good enough to be in the NRL. Rabbitohs by 12.

    Interchange for Bulldogs is number 16 Jesse Martin
  • Interchange for Bears is number 17 Setefano Hala
    Interchange for Bulldogs is number 17 Austin Dias

Soward says: It's a huge loss for the Bulldogs with Jack Cogger going up to the NRL and he certainly deserves his NRL spot and it puts alot of pressure on the Marschke boys. For North Sydney, they have been outstanding and last week Brock Lamb showed he can direct the side around and he's come up with some clutch plays, including that 40m field-goal. Bears by 2.

    Interchange for Magpies is number 23 Soni Luke
  • Interchange for Mounties is number 12 Steve Tavita
    Interchange for Magpies is number 4 Kane McQuiggin

Soward says: Mounties have been one of the most impressive sides with two big wins in recent weeks. They've got a plan that they stick to and they know how to execute it. For the Magpies, Tyson Gamble moves back into five-eighth and that changes the dynamics of their attack and adds some finesse to the side. In saying that, the Mounties have easily been the best team to start the year. Mounties by 4.

  • Interchange for Magpies is number 17 Joel Luani
    Interchange for Jets is number 17 Daniel Vasquez
  • Interchange for Magpies is number 23 Blake Cook
    Interchange for Jets is number 20 Josh Carr

Soward says: The Wentworthville Magpies have shown some resilience in recent weeks under Rip Taylor but they have to be on their toes against the Jets. For me, the key is James Segeyaro and Kyle Flanagan and whether they can get on the same page for the full 80 minutes. If they do, it will get them over the line and they showed enough last week to suggest they'll get their first win of the season. Newtown by 2.

    Interchange for Dragons is number 16 Pio Sokobalavu
  • Interchange for Knights is number 18 Pasami Saulo
    Interchange for Dragons is number 18 Zeik Foster

Soward says: The Dragons have got more changes to come with the injury to Gareth Widdop and they'll be desperate for their first win of the season. Then you look at the Knights and they've lost Mason Lino which is a huge omission for them and they haven't backed up their Round 1 win over Newtown. I can't separate these two sides at the moment so I'm going to tip a draw.
