If you’re stuck in traffic north of the Harbour Bridge and want to save on petrol, park your cars nearby and head over to North Sydney oval to see the Bears tackle the Bulldogs on Friday night.
Chances are you could see history when Wayne Lambkin's red and black troops attempt to break a club record of most consecutive wins.
The record stands from the 1994 season when between rounds 12 and 20 the Bears compiled 9 consecutive wins.
For the first time in the 100-year history of the club North Sydney will try and bear hug Canterbury into submission to make it 10-wins in a row.
The Bears find themselves in this historic position thanks to a hat trick of tries from Bears fullback Samu Wara on the way to a 52-12 win over the Central Coast two weeks ago.
Last weekend only three games were played in the NSWRL State Cup yet all held significance for the respective winners.
Manly conquered Auckland 37-34 in a high-scoring affair at Brookvale Oval to cement themselves into fourth spot on the State Cup ladder on 13-points, creating a 5-point buffer zone.
Newtown compounded Balmain’s woes even further with a 20-12 win at Leichardt Oval last Sunday.
However the visitors had to work for the two competition points, leading 8-6 at half time and then finding themselves ahead by only 2-points with less than ten minutes remaining in the contest.
A converted try in the 73rd minute was just was the Jets needed to kill off Balmain’s hopes of scoring a rare win in 2008.
The battle of the nickname rivals ended in a 32-28 victory going the way of Wentworthville over Western Suburbs in round 9 of the NSWRL State Cup.
With both teams running out onto the field under the title of “Magpies” , you could not ask for a more confusing scenario for fans or in fact the media.
This might explain why very few supporters yelled out “Carn the Pies” during the course of the game.
Eels centre Krisnan Inu made a superb return from injury. Playing for 60 minutes, the media drawcard set up two tries and defused one off the back of an energetic individual effort.
Live Rugby League returned to Concord Oval for the only 5th time before a crowd of around 350 fans who watched reigning premiers Wentworthville hold on.
That particular game can be seen on LeagueTV.com.au
This weekend a full schedule of matches is in store for faithful fans of the NSWRL State Cup.
