Good Friday battle returns on April 19

The Canterbury- Bankstown Bulldogs and the South Sydney Rabbitohs will battle It out on April 19 in the annual Good Friday clash between the two sides.

This year’s match will be the eighth meeting between the two teams on the public holiday.

The traditional Good Friday battle is highly anticipated, especially after the 2014 and 2015 games were decided by one point.

The clubs have gone head-to-head on Good Friday since 2012, with the Rabbitohs claiming a 20-10 win in the inaugural match.

Since then, both sides have won three of the last six fixtures with the Bulldogs’ victories coming in seasons 2014, 16 and 17.

Canterbury’s 42-12 win in 2016 has been the biggest winning margin between the two clubs over the past seven seasons, while the Bulldogs 15 -14 victory in 2014, plus their 18-17 defeat to the Rabbitohs in 2015 have been the closest.

The 2013 match drew a crowd of 51,866, the biggest to date, and on average 39,644 fans make the journey out to ANZ Stadium to support their team.

Once again, ANZ Stadium will play host to this traditional clash with members and fans heading to Homebush being able to take advantage of free return travel on Sydney Train services by showing their membership or ticket purchased for the game.

With the Royal Easter Show in full swing next door, members and fans are encouraged to arrive early to take part in all the family fun of this Good Friday afternoon match and support the Bulldogs in their Jersey Flegg fixture prior to the NRL game.

Families can purchase tickets for as little as $40 for four people and there will be a range of entertainment lined up for the kids, before, during and after the game at ANZ Stadium.
