Match Preview | Rabbitohs v Roosters

The Sydney Roosters are set to add another page to the greatest rivalry when they take to the field against the South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium on Friday night.

Set for their second meeting in 2020 and the final match of the regular season, both sides are playing to decide which seeding they'll be when they begin their NRL Finals run next weekend. 

While the Roosters are set for a top four finish, the Rabbitohs are looking to lock up the sixth seed for what will be an elimination final in week one. 

There's always some extra feeling when these two proud clubs go toe-to-toe, and it'll be no different on enemy turf in round 20.
