This weekends game has been rescheduled to be played at ANZ stadium on Sunday Aug 30 at 10.45am, to support the major event of the day which is Hazem El Masri playing in his last home game for the Bulldogs.
PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL NSDRLFC MEMBERS WILL BE ALLOWED FREE ACCESS TO THE GAME, JUST SHOW YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARD AT GATE B FOR SEATING BETWEEN ISLES 144 AND 145. With the injuries that South Sydney have encountered this week, an opportunity is there for those Bears players who have not had much game time this season to step up.
If the Bears can carry the form of their last game into this week, they are a chance. The Bears managed to put on one of their best displays of the year against the Magpies, with young halves Jarryd Hogan and Justin Hunt dominating the contest.
An interesting stat that came out of the game was every back from numbers 1-7 scored 1 try each and Justin converted all of them.
