High-flying South Sydney will put no pressure on their State of Origin stars to back up for Friday night's NRL clash with Gold Coast.

The Rabbitohs named representatives Damien Cook, Angus Crichton, Greg Inglis and Dane Gagai in their team to face the Titans two days after Origin 1, but stand-in skipper Sam Burgess was confident the club could stretch its winning streak to six games with or without the quartet.

"Greg, Dane and Cookey are all starting and will play big minutes so we'll see how they pull up ... but there's no pressure on them from our end," Burgess said.
