Rabbitohs skipper, Greg Inglis, says that he and his Rabbitohs love playing in the annual Good Friday clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium.
The sight of the Rabbitohs faithful out in force for the traditional clash is something that Inglis can’t easily forget having played in the match a number of times – the Test fullback now looking forward to similar scenes again this week.
“We love going out there on Good Friday and playing in front of our home fans – what better way (to spend Good Friday) with a four o’clock kick-off on a Friday afternoon,” said Inglis.
“The Easter Show’s right next door and (we’re) playing at home against the Dogs – it’s going to be a good clash.
“Just two teams going out there competing for the two points. It’s going to be a great challenge for us.
The Good Friday clash between the two clubs has gained a solid reputation as one of the game’s showpiece events, with crowds in excess of 40,000 regularly turning out to cheer on their team.
Inglis’ thoughts were mirrored by Rabbitohs five-eighth, Luke Keary earlier in the week, with the pivot admitting that the game is one of his highlights of the NRL season.
“It’s probably one of my favourite games of the year,” said Keary.
“It was a cracker last year – we’ve had big crowds and we’re expecting another big one this Friday.”
