Inglis Preparing for High Quality Clash
Rabbitohs fullback and Captain, Greg Inglis, is looking forward to this Thursday night’s round 25 clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs, precicting the match will be high quality hit-out.
The Bulldogs have enjoyed a return to form with two consecutive wins against Parramatta and the Wests Tigers, while the Rabbitohs have won five of their last six games leading into the match.
“It’s going to be a high quality game, no doubt about it,” said Inglis.
“We’ve just got to really turn up and play. It all started at training yesterday so we’ve just got to go through what we can control here, worry about us and put a really good preparation in.”
The Rabbitohs come into Thursday night’s match having gone down to the North Queensland Cowboys on Saturday night – the Club’s first loss since early July.
The Cowboys raced out to a 22 point lead, before a late fight-back saw the Rabbitohs take the second half by 10-6 in a tough encounter.
For Inglis, the match was a timely reminder that in the ever-competitive NRL, any team is capable of winning on any day.
“We learnt quite a bit actually,” said Inglis of the match.
“It just goes to show that anyone can be beaten on any day. At the end of the day, they just played better than us.”
But despite the disappointing loss, Inglis and his team are focused on Thursday night’s clash against the Bulldogs.
“We’ve just got put that aside and really concentrate on Thursday night against the Dogs (Bulldogs). The Dogs are a high quality side – it’s going to be a high quality match.”
