Josh Morris has spoken ahead of Friday’s match and the importance of continuing to register victories as the club heads towards finals.

The Bulldogs have won two in a row and the Rabbitohs flexed their muscles against the North Queensland Cowboys last week to register a convincing win and for the strike centre, the Bulldogs focus needs to be on themselves and continuing to register wins as the finals approach.

“It’s a very important game for us, because we are still not set in stone that we will be playing finals’” Morris said.

“We need to win and they will be super confident off a big in North Queensland as well.”

The players know what is at stake this week after the disappointment in round five and with both teams losing players after the clash, Morris acknowledged the loss did have an impact on the Bulldogs season, but you can’t use that as an excuse.

“I think both sides took a toll out of the match. The suspensions and injuries we copped in that game certainly didn’t help our season, but you can’t make that an excuse now.

“Both teams just need to win at this time of the year to make sure they’ve got the wins going into the finals.”

The Bulldogs and Rabbitohs will play for the Special Olympics Cup this Friday night, helping to raise funds and awareness for the Special Olympics organisation.
