Two undefeated teams in the Sydney South Rabbitohs and the Wests Tigers will do battle at ANZ Stadium.
Where: ANZ Stadium, Sydney
When: 5.00am GMT Sunday 22th March (4.00pm local)

Both sides have enjoyed great openings to 2015, the Tigers with back-to-back wins and the Rabbitohs on a roll since last year’s grand final.
But Souths will face their toughest test since that game. Former captain John Sutton is out for some time with a broken jaw.
Just how they replace the influential figure will be telling. Apart from Sutton, South Sydney are looking good.
They eventually disposed of the Roosters and saw off the Broncos in round one. Adam Reynolds is controlling proceedings, Greg Inglis looking as threatening as ever at the back and Isaac Luke bossing things in the middle.
The Tigers will need to lift to upset the defending champions. They are a new-look team and have surprised most with victories over the Gold Coast and Canberra.
Led by rookie havles Mitchell Moses and Luke Brooks, along with James Tedesco, Wests are an exciting young team going places. They are getting better every week but Souths will present a real challenge.
