RUGBY LEAGUE: Souths have often had one over their rivals, Brothers, but this week that could all change.

The Pride of Milton Street match is a highlight of the Souths Super Saturday competition and it's always a heated contest between the two clubs.

Souths have had it over Brothers for the past couple of years, however, Sharks' coach Wayne Barnett said Brothers are stronger than ever.

"Obviously, being the cup up for grabs, everyone is pretty geared up and keen for the game," he said.

"We had a pretty evenly matched trial so it's going to be an interesting game."

It's been a week of disruptive training for both teams, but Bennett said Souths had trained hard on their week off last weekend.

"We have won the last two but now we are starting to come up against some better opposition," Barnett said.

Going up against Brothers, Barnett said the team will be focussing on completing their sets.

"I just want the boys to perform and go out and enjoy themselves and get the result at the end of it," he said. "Hopefully we can turn them into positive outcomes."

Both sides will welcome back their U20s players who will return after a successful campaign with the Cutters.

"That just shows the depth of the talent we have around," Barnett said.

The up and coming players from Brothers and Sharks will be on showcase with junior games running throughout the day.

Souths football manager Michael Bayliss said it's great to bring the seniors and juniors together for Super Saturday.

"The juniors are the Sharkies of the future so we need to get down and support them," he said.
