South Sydney's Sam Burgess and St George Illawarra's Tyson Frizell go head-to-head on Thursday night.

South Sydney and St George Illawarra go head-to-head in Round 11 of the NRL Telstra Premiership with two enforcers of the game set to clash in the forwards.

Rabbitohs star Sam Burgess has had a slow and steady re-introduction to the NRL while Dragons hard man Tyson Frizell is an outside chance of getting into Laurie Daley's NSW Blues team for State of Origin I.

The Dragons find themselves in the NRL top eight after 10 rounds despite averaging just 10.5 points per game and conceding an average of 19.8 points per game. The Rabbitohs average 20.4 points per game but have a slightly more leaky defence at 21.9 points conceded per game.

The Rabbitohs have scored 37 tries so far in 2016 while the Dragons have only scored 17. 

These sides met in atrocious conditions at the SCG back in Round 3, with the Dragons prevailing 8-6 in a rain-soaked affair.
