LOSS 6-14

The South Sydney Rabbitohs have gone down 6-14 to the Melbourne Storm tonight (Sunday) in front of a crowd 11,433 supporters at their Round 11 home clash at nib Stadium in Perth. Head Coach Michael Maguire fielded his team from 1-17 with positions imitating those from last week’s win over the Wests Tigers. The Round 11 clash recognised the Mark Hughes Foundation with all players running out onto the field in beanies. The Storm opened the scoring early, finding space and taking the ball to the right corner to score the first four-pointer for the night. Cameron Smith’s conversion attempt was successful and the Storm had an early six point lead. The Storm continued to put pressure on the Rabbitohs defence but the line of Red and Green jerseys didn’t back down and kept a solid force away from their line. The commitment payed off and the Rabbitohs flipped the momentum on the field charging up to the Storms danger zone. A smooth pick up by Robbie Farah in dummy half assited to the Rabbitohs first try, floating the ball off to the left to John Sutton who forced his way through four defenders to roll over backwards and get the ball to the ground. Adam Reynolds added the extras and the Rabbitohs levelled up the scores six points all in the 14th minute. The Storm were the first to get their second try when a well-weighted grubber by Smith on the left side of the field lined up Josh Addo-Carr who sprinted over to score in the far left corner in goal. Smith’s conversion attempt swayed to the left and the Rabbitohs fell behind six points to 10 with just under 15 minutes remaining on the clock for the first half. Slammin’ Sam lived up to his nickname making 85 running metres in a total of 11 runs in the first half. The team held a high completion rate at 88% and an effective tackle percentage of 93.7% from 178 total tackles. The second half saw the wet conditions have an impact on the game for both sides. Melbourne looked like the next team to score when winger Suliasi Vunivalu caught a high ball and ran 70 meters down the field. Looking unlikely to be caught, Alex Johnston made what was an extremely impressive run, chasing down Vunivalu and forcing a knock on for the Rabbitohs to regain possession. His effort was recognised by his teammates with each player going over to him to give him a well-deserved pat on the back. With 16 minutes left on the clock, Reynolds was taken off for a concussion test which saw Farah move into the halfback position and Damien Cook come on into hooker. Despite the Rabbitohs increasing their possession the Storm found a gap on our right side and Vunivalu found the line to add another four points to the Storms lead. Smith's conversion missed the uprights but the visiting team extending their lead 14 points to six. While the Rabbitohs kept up their determination to catch up, the night would end in favour of the Melbourne Storm with the win placing them back on top of the NRL ladder.

U20 National Youth Holden Cup - Round 11

v Melbourne, Redfern Oval, Sat May 20 1:00pm

WIN 44-18

Late Changes - Shepherd was trimmed 24 hours before the match. Graham, Johan and Rodwell are out, Reweti starts wing, O'Connor centre, Hippi five-eight, Leddy hooker, Johnstone prop.

Despite a Melbourne Storm fightback in the second half of today’s National Youth Competition clash at Redfern Oval, the South Sydney Rabbitohs Youth team defeated the Melbourne Storm 44-18 to register their third win of the season. It didn’t take long for the Rabbitohs to set the pace at Redfern Oval, scoring in the 8th minute through hooker Jalen Reweti. Dean Hawkins converted the effort to give the Rabbitohs an early 6-0 lead over the visitors. It would be the Rabbitohs edge play that would be too much for the Storm to handle with Tyrone Taukamo finishing out wide in the 13th minute and Dylan O’Connor scoring in the 29th. Dean Hawkins continued his good start with then boot to convert both efforts. Dylan O’Connor would bag his second try of the match with a length of the field try coming from an intercept deep in his own territory. With the Dean Hawkins conversion the Rabbitohs would come out strongly to lead 24-0 after 34 minutes. Fullback Beau Cordtz got in on the action in a similar fashion to O’Connor’s effort, scoring a length of the field try after picking up an attacking grubber inside his goal line. Hawkins would miss his first conversion of the game and the young Rabbitohs would enter the sheds 28-0 at half time. Whilst the first half was a display of dominance from the young Rabbitohs outside backs, the second half would showcase their forward packs ability as Sam Johnston and Josh Saunders barged over to score in the 45th and 55th minutes respectively. Hawkins had no problems converting and the Rabbitohs would record an unanswered 40 points against their opposition. The Storm’s Jesse Arthars would attempt to inspire his team to fight back, scoring a try and converting his own effort in the 58th minute. However, Mawene Hiroti would hit back shortly after in the 61st minute to re-establish the Rabbitohs dominance. Dean Hawkins would miss this kicking attempt and the scores would sit at 44-6. The Rabbitohs, comfortable ahead on the scoreboard, would take their foot off the pedal and allow the Storm to rack up two quick tries with Dechlan Day and Kea Pere both registering points for the visiting side in the 68th and 70th minute. It would be too little, too late for the Storm as the clock ran down with the Rabbitohs winning the round with a 44-18 scoreline.

Reserve Grade - Intrust Super NSW Premiership Round 11

v Blacktown, North Sydney Oval, Sun May 21 3:00pm

LOSS 6-22

Late Changes - Tasi is out and Williams comes onto the bench.

The Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles have earned themselves a valuable away victory, holding out a poor North Sydney Bears outfit 22-6 at North Sydney Oval on Sunday afternoon. The Bears were early favourites considering the tough start Blacktown have endured this season, but a multitude of handling errors throughout the contest proved costly in a lacklustre performance. The Sea Eagles were reduced to 11 players after ill-discipline crept into their game in the dying stages of the brutal encounter, but they held strong and ran away with a much-needed victory. Cameron Cullen put in another strong performance with a hand in two tries, while Darcy Lussick and Shaun Lane proved monumental through the middle-third with some barging runs of their own. A knock-on from the Bears in their first set gave Blacktown an unlikely opportunity to claim first points, but North Sydney’s defence proved too strong and couldn’t be broken. Pressure continued to build for the Bears as they made a host of errors coming out of their own end, and Blacktown took full advantage with Kelepi Manu bursting onto a brilliant offload to cross for the first try of the afternoon. Brimming with confidence, Blacktown continued to roll through the middle with some barging runs from their forwards, and looked likely to score a second try but only for the final pass to be ruled forward. The resulting set from the Bears showed a few reasons why they have had a successful start to the year, steamrolling their way through the defence with an eventual pin-point kick from Luke Kelly forcing a line dropout. Both teams were fighting hard to earn themselves a breakthrough try, but it was the Sea Eagles who found themselves on the scoreboard once again with Shaun Lane busting through some poor defence to score his team’s second of the day. Joey Lussick converted the try to extend the lead to 12 points with just under 20 minutes gone in the game. Ill-discipline from the Bears was their achilles heel throughout the first 30 minutes with constant errors and penalties gifting Blacktown easy field position – they wasted little time with a perfect grubber finding winger Maliko Filino for their third unanswered try. Strong carries from Bears fullback Adam Doueihi sparked his team to start their comeback, but they were unable to find a maiden try with the committed Blacktown defence forcing another error. An unsuccessful penalty goal attempt from the Sea Eagles saw the end of a dominant first half, keeping the Bears scoreless and holding onto a 16-point advantage. The Bears had a perfect start to the second half with a strong kick-off set resulting in a penalty, and they made no mistake with their chance as a classy back-line movement saw Latrell Robinson cross in the left-hand corner. Momentum continued to swing as the home side quickly gained some valuable metres, but they were unable to crack the defence as Blacktown continuously held them out. A break down the right-hand touch line saw the Sea Eagles threaten for another four-pointer and some strong support play from Pita Godinet saw him streak away under the posts for a much-needed try. Despite the score line, the Bears fought hard with some valiant defensive efforts forcing numerous handling errors, but they were unable to capitalise on their hard work with a handful of clumsy mistakes of their own. Blacktown were mounting a heap of pressure on the Bears as their defence continued show their residence, ill-discipline from their forwards saw two of their players sin-binned in the final 10 minutes. The Bears had the perfect chance to redeem themselves with a consolation try, but their handling errors costed them once again and were unable to break-through. Although down to 11 men, the Sea Eagles proved too strong with a stunning 22-6 victory that will see them mount a potential charge towards the top eight of the Intrust Super Premiership NSW.
