Rabbitohs forward, Kyle Turner, was making some furry new friends at the Royal Easter Show today (Wednesday) ahead of this Friday’s Good Friday blockbuster against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium, Homebush.
Turner said that the long-weekend was a great opportunity to take in a brilliant game of football as well as the Easter Show.
“I’m expecting a big crowd there,” said Turner.
“What better day to go to it – you’ve got the Easter Show, everyone can go over and watch the football and it’ll be a big match so I’m looking forward to it.
“I’m expecting a big game. Both sides will be ready turning up to play so it’s exciting times.”
While Turner won’t take part in the clash, the Indigenous All Star was in high spirits at the Show as he recovers from neck surgery.
“I go and see the doctor tomorrow to finally get the all-clear, and get back into recovering and hopefully playing soon,” said a hopeful Turner.
ANZ Stadium will host two blockbuster fixtures over the Easter long weekend, with the Rabbitohs and Bulldogs kicking off proceedings on Good Friday, followed by a clash between Western Sydney rivals the Parramatta Eels and the Wests Tigers on Easter Monday.
