Arch-rivals the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the Sydney Roosters meet in a Round 1 blockbuster to open the NRL season in style at ANZ Stadium on Thursday 6 March.
The last time these two foundations clubs met was in the last round of the 2013 regular season in front of a record NRL crowd 59,708. It was a nail-biting affair as the top two teams battled it out only to have the Roosters soar to beat the Rabbitohs 24-12 and take the Minor Premiership, then later the Grand Final.
The Rabbitohs will be hungry for revenge and The Burrow sure to be in full song for their first home game. Don’t miss this spectacular season opener!
