PERTH rugby league fans are in for a rare treat this Sunday as South Sydney confront Gold Coast at Perth oval.

The Rabbitohs have had a roller-coaster season so far and are within reach of the NRL top eight after a hard-fought win over St George Illawara last week.

The 34-24 win brought the Rabbitohs’ their first consecutive wins since round 1 and 2 but came at a cost, with prop George Burgess sustaining a groin injury that will keep the Englishman out of action for two months.

The Perth game is vital for Gold Coast, as the Titans are just below South Sydney on the ladder; separated only by aggregate points difference.

A loss could deal a devastating blow to the finals hopes for either side.

South Sydney have played at least one home game a year in Perth since 2009.

The match starts at 4.30pm this Sunday.
