Historic rivals South Sydney Rabbitohs and Sydney Roosters meet in a rare family friendly afternoon clash at ANZ Stadium. The two clubs have taken all of the major trophies between them over the past two seasons, and after significant departures during the close season they will look to display their credentials for the 2015 campaign.
Games between these two sides are always intense and Sunday will be no exception. The current balance of power lies with the Rabbitohs having beaten the Roosters in last year’s preliminary final, avenging defeats in Minor Premiership deciders in 2013 and 2014.
Questions had been asked of the Roosters regarding their ability to hold a place in the top four without the likes of Sonny Bill Williams and Anthony Minichiello. Those questions were answered in emphatic fashion with a dominant display against the Cowboys in Townsville.
South Sydney will also have been pleased with their display against the Bronco’s, following on from impressive outings at the Auckland 9’s and Club World Challenge. Already, after just one week of the season, there are many who are now tipping this as a potential Grand Final in October.
Rabbitohs fans are encouraged to arrive early at ANZ Stadium for the chance to get a photo with the NRL Premiership, World Club Challenge and Auckland 9’s trophies. Head to aisle 128 where the silverware will be on hand from 1.40pm until kick-off.
All pre-purchased tickets include return rail travel to Sydney Olympic Park.
Sunday 15th March 16:00, ANZ Stadium Homebush
