WIN 26-20

South Sydney have survived a scare to overcome a 14-point deficit and beat cellar dwellers Parramatta 26-20 at ANZ Stadium on Saturday night. The Eels took advantage of playing with an extra man in the opening half to stroll to an 18-6 lead after Rabbitohs centre Hymel Hunt was sent to the sin-bin, stunning the pro-Rabbitohs crowd, who were celebrating John Sutton's 300th NRL appearance last week. But the Bunnies worked their way back into the contest in the second half to lay on two quick tries before Dane Gagai's try with 12 minutes remaining gave the home team a two-point lead. Souths moved to the top of the Telstra Premiership ladder temporarily with the victory but Rabbitohs coach Anthony Siebold will not be happy with his side's overall performance. For the Eels, who were forced to play with 16 for most of the contest with Kaysa Pritchard leaving the field with a shoulder injury, it added more misery on the club looking to avoid the wooden spoon in 2018. Pritchard came off second best in a tackle on Rabbitohs prop Tom Burgess and club doctors spent the opening half trying to pop the shoulder back into place. He'll have scans on Sunday to determine the extent of any structural damage. South Sydney struck first with Damien Cook providing a crisp short ball for Gagai to cross for his first of the night, but the Rabbitohs were forced to defend their tails for the remainder of the first half as the Eels gained the upper hand. Hunt was sent to the sin-bin after the Bunnies conceded five consecutive penalties on their line. Parramatta took advantage of the extra man on the paddock to pile on two tries. Clint Gutherson landed on a Corey Norman cross-field kick before Hayne found open space on the back of a Peni Terepo short ball to weave his way around Alex Johnston in vintage fashion. The momentum continued before the break with veteran centre Michael Jennings winding back the clock to wrestle past Hunt and score the visitors' third. Both sides were denied close calls that led to tries in the second half which sparked the contest late in the game. Hayne plucked a South Sydney pass out of the air to race 90 metres to score under the posts until replays showed a slight knock-on in the lead up. The Rabbitohs were then denied a four-pointer of their own with Cody Walker touching down millimetres short of the try-line. A strong hit from Sam Burgess on Terepo helped inspire his teammates and propel them to their fast finish. Norman was next to be binned with the Eels penalised multiple times on their line in a huge game-changer. Graham sealed the win in the final minute with his second try in the corner.

Reserve Grade - Intrust Super NSW Premiership - Round 20

v Mt Pritchard, Aubrey Keech Reserve, Sat Jul 28 3:00pm

WIN 34-6

Late Changes - Turner, C.Johnston are out. Fuimaono start second row, Koloamtangi lock, Butler and Leuluai on the bench. The North Sydney Bears have fanned the flames of their finals aspirations after scoring a comprehensive 34-6 upset over the second-placed Mounties at Aubrey Keech Reserve on Saturday afternoon. In a must-win game, the Bears were extremely dominant for most of the proceedings. Onlookers would have been forgiven for thinking it was North Sydney in the top four rather than Mounties. Two-try hero Connor Tracey and halfback Dean Hawkins were outstanding in the win. Mounties deeply missed the guidance of star hooker Craig Garvey and a slew of other regulars. A multitude of unforced errors cruelled the home side, who struggled to build any pressure. It initially appeared as though the Bears were in for a long afternoon following a horror beginning to the match. To start, they were penalised for being offside from the opening kick-off. Next, they failed to complete their first set of six. The visitors held firm in defence amid the mistakes, however, and Mounties weren't able to capitalise on the territory. An arm wrestle ensued and neither team could crack the other. It took a piece of individual brilliance from Bears five-eighth Tracey in the 13th minute to break the deadlock. With nothing happening, Tracey suddenly burst into the clear and burnt all chasers on his way to a scintillating try. Hawkins couldn't convert from out wide as North Sydney took a 4-0 lead. The Bears nearly extended the margin five minutes later when they created space down the right edge close to the line only for the final pass to end up over the sideline instead of in the arms of unmarked winger Richard Kennar. But just minutes later, North Sydney notched a second try. After a slick back line shift down the left, centre Jacob Gagan powerfully planted the ball on the chalk. This time, Hawkins nailed the conversion from virtually the same spot as his first goal attempt. With the Bears leading comfortably, Hawkins sunk the boot in using his pinpoint kicking game, constantly finding open space and forcing Mounties to come out of their own end. The pressure almost culminated in another four-pointer when North Sydney winger Mawene Hiroti made a clean break down the left sideline. Enter Tyler Cornish: the Mounties fullback produced an inspirational legs tackle to take Hiroti into touch and save a certain try. Mounties again narrowly avoided sinking further behind soon after, desperately stopping an outstretched Tracey from claiming a double. Those efforts proved invaluable, with a converted try to winger Tony Satini in the dying seconds of the first-half sending Mounties into the sheds behind only 10-6 despite being utterly outplayed. Mounties burst out of the gates in the second-half and went straight on the attack, but North Sydney was able to strike against the grain. A Mounties grubber was deflected and scooped up by a flying Kennar, who in turn found centre Braidon Burns backing up. He scurried away untouched to complete a stunning 100-metre turnaround for North Sydney. Hawkins added the extras. A Hawkins penalty goal in the 49th minute pushed the Bears' advantage to 12; the way it would stay until for the next quarter of an hour. In similar circumstances to the try prior, North Sydney scored again when Tracey cleaned up a loose ball after a Mounties kick and was far too quick for the trailing defence. Hawkins nailed the conversion. There was no halting the Bears from there onwards, as they nabbed another try through interchange forward Samuel Johnstone. An all-in scuffle occurred late in the piece that resulted in the sin-binnings of North Sydney's Rhys Kennedy and Mounties' Corey Horsburgh. The Bears added one final try to Kennar while the duo cooled their heels.

NSWRL Women's Premiership - Semi-Finals

(1v2) v Mt Pritchard, Leichhardt Oval, Sat Jul 28 3:30pm

LOSS 12-14

Late Changes - Moale, Tallon and Baker drop off the bench. The South Sydney Rabbitohs women went down to a last minute penalty at Leichhardt Oval this afternoon losing 14-12 to the Mount Pritchard Mounties in the Harvey Norman NSW Women's Premiership. With seconds to go and the scores all locked up Mounties were rewarded a penalty right in front of the sticks to send themselves through to the Grand Final in two weeks time. The start of the match was fast and fierce with Mounties flying out of the blocks to score first through Simaima Taufa, who scored next to the posts after just 2 minutes. Janelle Williams added the extras to put Mounties up 6-0. The match would continue in arm wrestle fashion with the Rabbitohs fighting to gain control. They would eventually find themselves on the scoreboard through a similar play to their opponents, with barnstorming backrower Chloe Caldwell barging over from close range. Maddie Studdon would lock the scores up at 6-6 all with a successful conversion on the 16th minute. Throughout the match, it was easy to see why these two sides finished first and second respectively, with neither side giving an inch. However, it would the be the Red and Green that would be the next to take the lead, working their way up field before hooker Rebecca Riley, burrowed over for a four-pointer. Again Studdon was successful with the boot to give the Rabbitohs a 12-6 lead at half-time. The second half started the exact same way the first did with big hit-ups and even stronger tackles. No side could break the other down and both missed chances to take the ascendancy. However, the Rabbitohs women began to get frustrated and were dealt a big blow when try scorer Caldwell was sent to the bin for back-to-back dangerous tackles. Rabbitohs held on valiantly as Mounties peppered their line with wave after wave attack. Unfortunately for the Red and Green though, the pressure in the end told, and Mounties went over under the posts through dummy-half Talia Lealaiauloto. With the kick right in front, the scores were level with just 8 minutes remaining. It was impossible to tell which way the match was going to go but in the end, it was the Red and Green who drew the short straw as three consecutive penalties allowed Mounties to steal the win, with the last resulting in the winning two points from in the front of the posts.
