Sunday afternoon football in the South Sydney area will be a feature of the opening rounds of the 2016 season for the Rabbitohs, with the Club set to get its new campaign underway against the Sydney Roosters in Round 1 at Allianz Stadium, and the St George Illawarra Dragons in Round 3 at the Sydney Cricket Ground.
The men in red and green will kick off their season on Sunday 6 March at their former home ground, when the oldest and most fierce rivalry in the game is renewed for the 213th time against fellow Foundation Club, the Roosters.
Meanwhile in Round 3, the Rabbitohs return to the SCG on March 20 for yet another traditional Sunday afternoon clash, this time against St George Illawarra, continuing a long history of epic battles between the two teams played in the area that includes countless ‘match of the day’ games as well as Grand Finals.
The NRL announced the select matches today (Monday) with the full NRL Draw set to be confirmed soon.
