Robert Jennings is hoping to spoil older brother Michael’ s 250th game on Thursday night when the Rabbitohs clash with the Eels.

They temporarily move to the top of the ladder ahead of Penrith and St George Illawarra, who are yet to play this round, on points differential, while the Eels remain rooted to the bottom of the table.

It was also their seventh straight win - the first time they've achieved the feat since 1994.

The hosts had hoped to build on their drought-breaking win over North Queensland last week and appeared on their way when a Bevan French try gave his team an eight-point lead in the 25th minute.

But once the Rabbitohs found their feet, Parramatta were simply no match for the league's best attack in front of a disappointing crowd of 8047 at ANZ Stadium.

For as long as South Sydney Rabbitohs winger Robert Jennings can remember, the expectation of performing like older brother Michael has always been there.

Tries to Robert Jannings and Alex Johnston in the space of three minutes gave the visitors the lead at the break, with Johnston completing a brace soon after the resumption.

Jennings claimed the second hat trick of his career after skipper Greg Inglis found himself in the backfield, and he then registered his fourth on the hour-mark.

He finished the night with a game-high 163 metres, six tackle busts and four line breaks, while Johnston also had a combined six line break and try assists.

Consolation tries to Eels pair Jarryd Hayne and Josh Hoffman saved some face for Brad Arthur's side, with Hayne now scoring three tries in his two matches since returning from a hip injury.

With State of Origin II on Sunday week, Inglis was given an early rest after 68 minutes, while their NSW contingent also finished unscathed.
