South Sydney Rabbitohs half, Luke Keary, is looking forward to his side’s annual Good Friday clash against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
The Good Friday clash between the two clubs has gained a solid reputation as one of the game’s showpiece events, with crowds in excess of 40,000 regularly turning out to cheer on their team.
“It’s probably one of my favourite games of the year,” said Keary.
“It was a cracker last year – we’ve had big crowds and we’re expecting another big one this Friday.”
After experiencing the ferocity of the last Good Friday clash, Keary knows exactly what to expect from the Bulldogs, who will be looking to bounce back from their Round 3 loss at the hands of the Parramatta Eels and regather some momentum.
“I’m expecting them to be just as physical on Friday,” said Keary.
“We’re expecting another close game, as they always are.”
The physicality of the affair is only one aspect of the game that Keary is excited about though. The Rabbitohs halfback is also looking forward to the challenge of squaring off against the Bulldogs halves pairing of Moses Mbye and Josh Reynolds.
“I think Moses (Mbye) is playing real good in the halves,” said Keary
“I love playing against Josh (Reynolds), we’ve had a few good battles. I’m sure he’ll have a few things to say.”
Keary also spoke positively of the halves combination that he has formed with NRL newcomer, Cody Walker, who has stepped up in the absence of Adam Reynolds.
“Yeah, it’s been good,” said Keary
“He’s a bit of a livewire player and he gets around the field. It’ll be interesting to see how he goes in the next month.”
The Rabbitohs will take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in the annual Good Friday blockbuster at ANZ Stadium this Friday at 4pm. Click here to purchase your tickets.
