No, you're not seeing things. It's a Bulldogs home game from the south of New Zealand, as the Bulldogs host the Warriors in Dunedin this evening (afternoon?).
Both sides have confirmed their sides ahead of the match. The Bulldogs will run out 1-17, with Francis Tualau and Reimis Smith both being removed from the squad named on Tuesday. The side will be without Will Hopoate and Kerrod Holland, both of whom are out with long term injuries.
The Warriors will start with Tuimoala Lolohea at fullback and Manu Vatuvei returning on the wing. The bench will made up of Charlie Gubb, Sam Lisone, Erin Clark and Bunty Afoa. Roger Tuivasa-Sheck will miss the game with concussion.
