The crowd, the cheers and the feeling that you part of a big community. That is what going to a Bulldogs game is all about. There is a sense of community, being part of an urban family, across different cultures and generations that you can only get when you see the game live.

I have been a Bulldogs member for the last five years, and in that time I have come to appreciate the feeling of being at a live game, catching the bus in to the stadium, picking the best seat in GA, and being part of the cheers although watching on TV allows for shorter trips to get snacks.

I am most looking forward to seeing all the fans in their blue and white another sense of community as we make our way to ANZ Stadium to see our boys at play. The matchup between the five-eighths will be one to watch - Josh Reynolds has played great so far this season, especially with that try against the Eels.

The games against the Rabbitohs are always a highlight on the season calendar. These two long-standing teams have always enjoyed a sense of rivalry and similarity between them. Both have long histories and a loyal fan base, all the while playing with a sense of respect for each other.

Predicting a 22-20 win over the Rabbitohs.
