Rugby League players live for big games, and few come much bigger than the Rabbitohs’ annual Good Friday clash against the Bulldogs according to halfback Adam Reynolds.
With crowds in excess of 40,000 packing into ANZ Stadium in recent years to watch the traditional clash, Reynolds told the Rugby League media today (Tuesday) that he is looking forward to the challenge in 2015.
“You always want to play in (those) games,” said Reynolds.
“No doubt they’ll be ready to turn up ready to play and so will we, so it’s good to see where we’re at both physically and mentally.
“They’re a big side and so are we – no doubt there’s going to be a few fireworks on the night.”
The Bulldogs come into the clash having picked up a golden-point victory over Wests courtesy of five-eighth, Moses Mbye. The Rabbitohs on the other hand went down to the Parramatta Eels on the same night – a result that Reynolds described as disappointing.
“We were disappointing last week,” said Reynolds.
“We’re set out to prepare better this week and turn up a lot better ready to play. We need to hold onto the ball and not give silly penalties away.
“We were giving away way too much ball and they made us pay for it.
