Round 5 NRL Preview
Round five will see the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs take on the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the annual Good Friday clash at ANZ Stadium.
In what will be a replay of last year’s Grand Final, the Bulldogs will be looking to return serve and continue their winning ways to make it four in a row.
The Bulldogs welcome back fullback Brett Morris, centre Tim Lafai and five-eighth Josh Reynolds into the side after all three missed the win against the Tigers last Friday night.
Whilst both sides have now moved on from the result in the final match of season 2014, interchange prop forward Tim Browne said it is still in the back of everyone’s mind.
“Everyone has been building it up,” Browne said. “It’s obviously a Grand Final re-match and we were obviously on the wrong end of the result that day but you can’t dwell on it too much, you have to let it go.
“2015 is a new season and we’re looking forward to the challenge. They’re (Rabbitohs) the benchmark, they’ve had a great start to the year and whilst they had a little hiccup last week, that will make them even hungrier to try and turn it around this week.”
