If last year’s match between these two contenders is anything to go by, than this year’s instalment should be one to remember.
In the corresponding game in 2013, the Rabbitohs grabbed their fourth straight win of the season on Good Friday against the Bulldogs in round four. In front of a massive crowd of more than 51,680 fans, the Rabbitohs accounted for the Dogs by 17-12 in a match that had all the hallmarks of a finals blockbuster.
The match started slowly for the Rabbitohs with the Bulldogs opening the scoring in the 14th minute, but a barnstorming effort from George Burgess saw the Englishman carry Bulldogs defenders over the line from a standing start to take the team’s to the break locked up at six apiece.
Souths took the momentum into the second half when a brilliant Adam Reynolds kick hit the chest of Nathan Merritt on the fly, the winger entering the NRL’s all-time top- ten try-scorers list, before Bryson Goodwin sealed the win with a try eleven minutes from full time.
An Adam Reynolds field-goal just before full-time rounded off a well-controlled performance by the Rabbitohs against an equally potent opponent.
This season’s match could be even bigger, with both teams coming into the round seven clash coming off victory’s and positive form.
But there’s only one way to get the full experience this Good Friday, and that’s by getting out to ANZ Stadium and throwing your support behind your Rabbitohs! The boys can’t hear you cheering from your lounge-room, so don your red and green, hop on a train, ferry or bus and get out to ANZ Stadium to support the mighty Rabbitohs.
