Pritchard: Souths Game is a Must Win
Tuesday 20 August 2013 12:26 PM
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Second Row Forward Frank Pritchard says this week’s blockbuster against the South Sydney Rabbitohs is a must win for the team as they head towards the finals.
In a press conference in front of Sydney media this morning, Pritchard made it clear that it is vital the Bulldogs continue to win every game before the finals to cement their spot and built confidence.
“A win for us just before semi’s would be a boost of confidence to the team, you know we have a couple of players missing… I shouldn’t say we’re desperate for a win but it’s a must win for us.” Said Pritchard.
The Bulldogs have had a tough 2013 season with injuries plaguing the team consistently with the squad showing strong resilience to find themselves just outside the top four late in the season.
“It’s been an up and down season for us and winning the game this week would be a boost of confidence for the players.” Frank said.
The Bulldogs will start as the away team this week at ANZ stadium, however all members will receive FREE ENTRY as part of the reciprocal away game agreement.
The South Sydney Rabbitohs, National Rugby League, ANZ Stadium and City Rail have joined forces to provide integrated rail transport for anyone who pre-purchases a ticket or has Membership access to the Round 24 at ANZ Stadium.
Integrated ticketing means that Ticketed Members with access to these games, as well as pre-purchased ticket holders, will be able to travel free of charge on rail to Sydney Olympic Park for these two huge NRL fixtures, therefore making it easy for every footy fan to enjoy one of the biggest games of the season.
Special Olympic Park train services have been scheduled to move the expected large crowds from Central to ANZ Stadium. These direct services will commence at 5:39pm from Central Station and will run regularly (at least every 15 minutes) up to kick off for both events.

The trip from Central to Sydney Olympic Park only takes 22 minutes, with stops at Redfern and Strathfield.
Rabbitohs Ticketed Members and Bulldogs Ticketed Members, who have reciprocal access to Friday night’s game, just need to show their Membership pass to rail staff at any station across the network to enjoy free rail travel to and from the match.
