Thursday, 17th of September, 7:50 PM, NRL Round 19, ANZ Stadium, Sydney, South Sydney Rabbitohs versus Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs NRL Match Fixture
The Rabbitohs head into this match after a hard-fought win against the Tigers last week, while the Bulldogs are coming off a loss to the Sea Eagles. With the Eels hot and cold run of form of late, the Rabbitohs will be hoping Parramatta lose to the Broncos so they keep their slim top-four hopes alive, whilst the Bulldogs will want the opposite to happen so they’re still in with a chance of avoiding the wooden spoon.
