LOSS 18-24

The South Sydney Rabbitohs have narrowly missed taking home a win, going down to the Brisbane Broncos 18-24 tonight (Friday) in their Round 14 clash at Suncorp Stadium. Michael Maguire made a late change to his starting line-up, moving Tyrell Fuimaono to start in the second-row resulting in Kyle Turner shifting to the bench. Robbie Rochow was named in the 17 while Anthony Cherrington dropped out. The opening minutes had the Rabbitohs name all over it with the Broncos faltering on the opening play when Kodi Nikorima knocked on after attempting to catch an Adam Reynolds kick-off. This resulted in an early attack by the Rabbitohs who put on a strong performance applying pressure on the Broncos defence. Sam Burgess got close to the line in the second minute but fell short. A Reynolds grubber followed but the Rabbitohs failed to capitalise on the early opportunity. It wasn’t over for the Rabbitohs attack yet when the Red and Green side gave themselves another shot at the try line but Korbin Sims got in the way, stripping the ball from Cody Walker and into the Broncos possession for the first time in the match. The Rabbitohs defence looked strong but the Broncos found a crack in the 15th minute and claimed the first points of the night with a try to Corey Oates. Jordan Kahu converted and the Broncos led six point to zero. The Broncos kept their eyes on the line and once again applied pressure to the Rabbitohs defence with Souths failing to match the numbers and letting a second try in, this time to Matt Gillett. Kahu slotted the conversion and the Broncos succeeded in extending their lead 12 points to zero. George Burgess was sent to the sheds for a Head Injury Assessment with Zane Musgrove taking his position on the field. The Rabbitohs hit back in the 24th minute with a well-weighted Reynolds kick finding the hands of Bryson Goodwin who placed the ball over the line to add the first points for the Rabbitohs. Reynolds had no problem sealing the try with a successful conversion closing in on the Broncos 12 point to six lead. The remainder of the half saw a physical performance from both sides with a strong kicking game shown by Reynolds and safe work in the back line by Walker. Robbie Rochow came on to replace Fuimaono while Angus Crichton showed a bold performance in the forwards. The Broncos looked to add another four-pointer on the buzzer of half-time but the Rabbitohs kept their composure holding Tautau Moga back from their line. The teams headed into the sheds at half-time with South Sydney behind six points to 12. The half-time statistics showed the Broncos pipping the Rabbitohs in possession holding a 55% - 45% advantage while completed sets were even across the board with both teams completing 15 sets and holding a 79% completion rate. The Rabbitohs came out flying in the second half applying pressure and making metres towards the Broncos line. The effort paid off and a John Sutton pass landed with Sam Burgess who crashed over for the Rabbitohs second try. Reynolds locked up the scores 12 points each slotting the ball straight through the uprights. The Broncos were the next to get over the line but the try went upstairs and was called a no try with Walker and Crichton forcing Moga to lose possession. But the home side would be the next team to gain extra points with Kahu doing the work to gain their third try for the night. His conversion swayed to the left and the Broncos led by a small margin 16 points to 12. However, the Broncos wouldn’t stop there and extended their lead shortly thereafter with a try to Sam Thaiday. Kahu made the shot at goal from in front of goal sealing their 22nd point. The Rabbitohs were falling behind and had some ground to make up with 18 minutes remaining on the clock. The Rabbitohs fought back with a couple of minutes remaining when Crichton cleaned up a Reynolds kick and slammed the ball down over the line claiming the Rabbitohs third try for the night. Reynolds successful conversion narrowed in on the Broncos lead and the Rabbitohs were behind 18 points to 22. Kahu managed to keep the Rabbitohs away to a converted try successfully kicking a penalty kick in the remaining two minutes of play. Despite a gallant effort from the Rabbitohs they couldn't catch the home side and the night would finish up with a Broncos victory 24 points to 18.

U20 National Youth Holden Cup - Round 14

v Brisbane, 5:20pm

WIN 28-22

Late Changes - Mailata was trimmed 24 hours before the match. Shaich-Wise, Pheonix Hunt and Graham were out. Johnstone starts second row.

The U20s Rabbitohs squad have secured a gutsy 28-22 comeback victory over the 5th placed Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium tonight (Friday). It was a tough start to the fixture for the Rabbitohs on unfamiliar ground as they struggle to contain the Broncos for the opening 17 minutes. Tries to Kotoni Staggs and Gerome Burns would push the Broncos out to an early lead but Gerome Burns could only find the conversion on one of the attempts. The Rabbitohs would be under the pump until the 35th minute when centre Dylan O'Connor would find the try line in the far right corner. The kick would prove too difficult for Adam Doueihi. The young Rabbitohs heading into the sheds at half time trailing 10-4. The second half would prove to be one of the best periods of football the young Rabbitohs have strung together this season, although the first 17 minutes of play wouldn't hint at the brilliant play that was to unfold. Corey Allan would score in the 57th minute for the Broncos and push the home side out to a commanding 22-4 lead. It would take something special for the Rabbitohs to claim the two points from here. Five minutes later the Rabbitohs found that special something and hit back through halfback Dean Hawkins. Adam Doueihi converted and the Rabbitohs smelt blood on the 62nd minute. Josh Saunders introduction would change the momentum of the game and the big forward (who part-time works at a nice café on the corner of Pitt and Redfern Street) would crash over in the 65th minute to put the young Rabbitohs back in contention. Doueihi converted and the Rabbitohs were within six points of the Broncos at 22-16. A Broncos error on their 20m line gifted the Rabbitohs a fine opportunity to equalize. It was an opportunity not to be lost to Tyrone Taukamo who brilliantly finished in the right corner. Adam Doueihi was handed a difficult conversion but made it look easy as he kicked the equalizer. 22-all after 71 minutes. Souths would steal the lead through winger Jalen Reweti - scoring in the opposite corner to Taukamo only three minutes later to notch Souths 14th unanswered point. However, Doueihi couldn't manage the tough conversion angle. A penalty against the Broncos would come at a crucial time and Souths would opt for the two - Doueihi making it look easy from 32 metres out to the left of the posts. Souths 28 - 22 Broncos, Despite a late scare when Rabbitohs winger Tyrone Taukamo was caught in goal, the Rabbitohs would absorb some desperate Broncos attacking play to seal out the game at Suncorp Stadium. A gusty performance and well deserved win for a Rabbitohs outfit that never lost belief.

Reserve Grade - Intrust Super NSW Premiership Round 14

v Wentworthville, North Sydney Oval, Sun Jun 11 3:00pm

WIN 16-8

Late Changes - Mauala, Freebairn are out. Rogers starts hooker, Cherrington bench, Clark lock, Dietz, Williams and Whitelaw start on the bench.

The North Sydney Oval curse has been broken, with the Bears coming out on top over the Wentworthville Magpies in a brutal defensive-orientated encounter. The Bears uncharacteristically lost four of four matches at the venue in 2017, but turned it around today, winning 16-8 and forcing their way back into the top four. Abbas Miski put in a powerful performance on the left wing, an effort that went far beyond the two tries he scored. It was a scoreless opening quarter to the match, with neither side able to crack their opposition defence in what started off as a fast paced match. Both sides were guilty of errors, however the rain and slippery conditions were a huge factor. After a defensively perfect opening 20 minutes, Gregory Leleisiuao pumped the legs and broke through three Bears defenders to score a powerful opening try for the Magpies. The Bears were able to work their way into good field position after forcing a Magpies error, and scored a polarising try to the one Wentworthville scored just minutes earlier. Instead of raw power, this try was pure was finesse, and Luke Kelly was able to create space with a cut-out ball for Ed Murphy to athletically plant the ball down in the corner. Abbas Miski made a dash down the left sideline off the kick-off set, and the Bears earned a penalty on the next tackle, immediately putting them back onto the attack. They converted their opportunity when Eli Levido threw a brilliant cut-out pass to the man who started it all, Miski, who strolled over untouched to take the lead. That was the final try before half-time and the first scoring play of the second half game through a penalty goal to Troy Dargan, which locked the scores up at 8-all. The Bears then got a penalty off the back of a forced dropout, and nudged the lead back out to two on the hour mark, before taking another shot at goal from a similar position shortly after. With the game being in the balance for the entire 70 minutes, the Bears finally sealed it thanks to Miski, who had been unstoppable on the left wing for the duration of the match.

Womens Rugby League

v Cronulla-Sutherland, Endeavour Field, Thu Jun 8 8:00pm

LOSS 10-24

The Rabbitohs Women's team put in a brave performance against the Cronulla Sharks Women's squad at Southern Cross Group Stadium tonight (Thursday) to ultimately go down 24-10. Facing a strong, established women's team in the form of the Shark's Women's series team, the Rabbitohs ladies put in a strong effort to grab the first points of the match but couldn't match the intensity of the host side. The Sharks gave dominated proceedings after the Rabbitohs breakthrough with four unanswered tries confirming the win before a late Souths four-pointer brought the scores closer together at full time. An error from the Sharks gifted Souths field position and they immediately took advantage with a try out wide to Nakia Davis-Welsh. The conversion was waved away but the visitors had taken an early 4-0 lead. The Sharks worked their way back into the match and it was a long-range try that would see them take the lead, Corban McGregor scoring on the back of an attacking movement down the western side of the field. Jordan Baker was on target with her kick at goal and the Sharks led 6-4. The Sharks went back on the attack and on the end of a clever passing movement Jessica Sergis would find some space, touching down for her teams second try of the night. Baker again added the extra two and the Sharks had a 12-4 advantage, a lead they would take into the half time break. After Souths failed to collect the kick off to start the second period the Sharks attacked once again and on this occasion it was hooker Rita Maynard showing good footwork to step through from close range and score 10-metres left of the uprights. Baker converted again and the Sharks led 18-4. With the momentum in favour of the Sharks Sergis scored once again, this time sprinting away on a 70-metre run to ensure the Sharks would claim the points and the victory against a Rabbitohs team who were extremely competitive but not quite good enough on the night. Souths managed a consolation try, courtesy of a brilliant individual effort from Welsh, her second of the night, converted by Chloe Caldwell in rounding out the scoring.
