IT’S an NRL Footy Feast this Easter long weekend with two blockbuster games at Stadium Australia.
The #EasterFootyFeast kicks off with the South Sydney Rabbitohs tackling the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in a Good Friday showdown on 18 April. This is followed by the Parramatta Eels v Wests Tigers classic on Easter Monday 21 April.
The Rabbitohs v Bulldogs Good Friday clash has become one of the biggest matches on the NRL calendar and is set to live up to the hype once again this year when the two Stadium Australia residents put home ground bragging rights on the line.
All three teams involved in the #EasterFootyFeast enjoyed wins in Round 5. The Rabbitohs bounced back into form with a comprehensive 26-6 win over the Dragons, the Eels continue to defy the odds with an impressive 25-18 victory over the Broncos away from home and the Tigers turned back the clock with an emphatic 34-18 win over the Silvertails, Manly, in their heritage round clash.
A then-record regular season crowd of 51,686 watched the Rabbitohs take the points over the Bulldogs in last year’s corresponding fixture and a sea of cardinal and myrtle and blue and white is expected again this year.
Hot on the heels of the Rabbitohs v Bulldogs showdown will be the match that is one day expected to rival the Good Friday clash — the Easter Monday western Sydney derby between the Parramatta Eels and Wests Tigers.
The Eels and Tigers have already shown they are different prospects in 2014, unearthing a host of young talent including Parramatta’s human ‘semi trailer’ Semi Radradra, and Luke Brooks and Martin ‘Kapow’ Tapau from the Tigers.
