The South Sydney Rabbitohs will take on the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks in an Elimination Final this Sunday in Week 1 of the NRL Telstra Premiership Finals Series at Allianz Stadium with kick-off slated for 4.10pm.
The Finals are set to light up when the likes of Alex Johnston, Dylan Walker and the Burgess twins face off against Michael Gordon, Michael Ennis and young-gun Valentine Holmes as both sides look to advance through the post-season.
The match will only be the second encounter between the two sides for the 2015 season.
Currently, the 2015 ledger favours the Sharks, with the sole encounter for the season, played in hurricane-like conditions at Cronulla providing the men from The Shire with the two premiership points in Round 7.
Cronulla managed to secure an 18-10 victory on that occasion in the torrid conditions, with torrential rain and gale-force winds of up to 80 km/h setting the scene for a unique clash.
Incredibly, the upcoming match will be the very first time that the two teams have played each other in a Finals match since the Sharks joined the competition in 1967.
Overall, both sides have met on 83 occasions, with the Sharks victorious 43 times, while South Sydney has taken the points in 37 of the encounters.
It’s all on the line for these two Sydney rivals, so get ready to ‘Light it Up!’
