South Sydney will take plenty of confidence into Saturday nights clash with the Knights.

After a disasterous start to the 2017 season, the Rabbitohs bounced back on the weekend, running down the Sea Eagles to win 38 – 18 and rack up the clubs first win of the season.

First Nations rookie Braidon Burns (pictured) was a solid performer in his debut match and says the team as a whole was relieved not to lose two on the trot this early in the season.
