WIN 28-20

South Sydney continued their unbeaten run in the 2019 Telstra Premiership with a 28-20 win over the Titans on Sunday, but the Rabbitohs are now down two starting centres. Skipper Greg Inglis (shoulder) never took to the field after withdrawing on match eve, then left centre Braidon Burns lasted only 24 minutes at ANZ Stadium before he came off with a hamstring strain. The 22-year-old was hobbling so badly in front of the eastern grandstand the medi-cab was needed to ferry him to the dressing sheds. Coach Wayne Bennett had already shuffled his backline shifting Dane Gagai to right centre and Broncos recruit Corey Allan to the wing to accommodate the loss of Inglis. Now he will have to do some more head scratching before he names his team on Tuesday to face Manly at Lottoland on Saturday. Kyle Turner came off the bench for Burns against the Gold Coast. The Titans now remain the only team in the NRL not to register a win so far, after round three contained upset 'away' wins for the Bulldogs, Sea Eagles and Dragons. But they were far from disgraced against South Sydney, able to hold their heads much higher than the 21-0 drubbing by the Raiders or the 20-6 loss to the Sharks last week. And Anthony Don's one-on-one strip in the 64th minute gave him his 68th try for the Titans – to become the club's highest scorer passing David Mead (67). Despite all the positive news, it is hard to defend some of the pinpoint kicks and passes that Souths pair Cody Walker and Adam Reynolds come up with. Lanky Rabbitohs winger Campbell Graham scored two tries on Sunday off the back of a 20-metre pass from Walker and then a gem of a corner kick by the No.6. That was all after Walker received on-field treatment by trainers for a left shoulder complaint in the 14th minute. Souths followed the script of a top-four side playing a bottom four with a comfortable 18-8 lead at halftime. After Walker's heroics early, Reynolds sent a long-range pass to his right-side winger Allan for was the 20-year-old's first try in the NRL. Throw in former Cowboy Ethan Lowe charging over for his first try in Rabbitohs colours in the first half and it was celebrations all round. But the Titans didn't go into their shell – it ended up four tries apiece. Brian Kelly burrowed over in the 24th minute and on the stroke of halftime winger Dale Copley intercepted a Damien Cook pass to race 40 metres untouched. Cook was hit late by Titans forward Keegan Hipgrave and left the field for an HIA test. He returned at the start of the second half. Kelly scored his second in the 58th minute, which reduced the Rabbitohs lead to 10 points at 24-14 before Don got the visitors within four at 24-20. But two penalties to Reynolds, plus the unfortunate Titans figures of 39 missed tackles and the 9-1 penalty count against them, sealed their fate.

Reserve Grade - Canterbury NSW Premiership Round 3

v Newtown, Redfern Oval, Sun Mar 31 1:10pm

WIN 28-26

Late Changes - C.Allan and Rodwell were out. Walmsley started fullback. It was another last-minute victory for the Rabbitohs Canterbury Cup side, this time downing the Newtown Jets 28-26 on a sun-kissed Metricon High Performance Centre at Redfern Oval. The Rabbitohs started off poorly sending the ball dead on the full off the kick-off. Despite the early setback, the Red and Green recovered quickly and were able to score first through Keon Koloamatangi in the 9th minute. Mawene Hiroti converted giving Souths an early 6-0 lead. The Jets hit back quickly in the 17th minute, with former Rabbitoh Siosifa Talakai, following a break by Ronaldo Mulitalo who passed to halfback Kyle Flannagan, who then dropped the ball on the toe for a grubber kick which was then regathered by Talakai who score near the posts. Flannagan missed the conversion for the Jets to trail 6-4. Souths then drew further ahead through halfback Jack Johns who scored after his forwards, initiated by Tom Amone, strung together some quick offloads in the middle of the field, stretching the Jets defence out wide enabling Johns to score relatively easily from a Billy Brittain pass. The ensuing conversion saw Souths extend their lead to 12-4. The Jets then began to fight back, scoring two quick tries in the dying stages of the half to Ronaldo Mutialo and James Segeyaro. The first try was the result of some slick ball movement from the Jets to the left, as the ball found its way quickly through the hands of Flannagan, fullback William Kennedy and try-scorer and Siosifa Talakai who crashed over in the corner. Segeyaro’s try was equally impressive, as the Jets made a break through Polselli, passing as he reached the Souths’ fullback to Segeyaro who raced away to score under the posts. Flannagan converted the try and the Jets took an unlikely 14-12 lead into the break. The Rabbitohs drew first blood in the second half after 10 minutes of relatively even football. Captain and hooker Billy Brittain picked the ball up from dummy half and found a yawning gap in the Jets’ defence on their line, scoring what would up being a relatively easy try. The conversion by Hiroti saw them retake the lead 18-14. Souths extended their lead further in the 59th minute after Jacob Gagan capitalized on an error at the back by Newtown, who failed to diffuse a Jack Johns bomb. It was the right place at the right time for Gagan, who scored one of the easiest tries of his career. Hiroti converted from the sideline, making it a 10 point lead for the Cardinal and Myrtle. Down by 10 with 14 minutes to go, the Jets hit back with a touch of class from Flannagan, who had defenders grasping at thin air with a dummy-and-go that fooled everyone at the ground. He strolled over the line to score, and converted his own try to get his side to within four points of the Rabbitohs. After piling on mountains of pressure on the Rabbitohs, Newtown cracked Souths’ line once again through another former Rabbitoh Aaron Gray, who scored in the corner to make it 24 all with 3 minutes on the clock. Kyle Flannagan nailed the clutch conversion, giving his side a 2 point lead with less than 2 on the clock. A short kick off by the Rabbitohs saw Newtown knock on 40m out from their own line, giving the Rabbitohs one last opportunity to seize back the lead before fulltime. Souths made the most of their final shot at victory with an absolutely incredibly final play in which the ball went through many sets of hands, before finding Rabbitohs’ winger Hiroti, who crashed over in the corner right on fulltime to send the Rabbitohs’ faithful into a frenzy at Redfern Oval. Hiroti missed the difficult conversion from the sideline, but it didn’t matter as the victory already belonged to Souths, defeating Newtown 28-26.

U20 NSW Jersey Flegg Cup - Round 2

v North Sydney, 11:15am

DRAW 30-30

Late Changes - Er and Pikuna were out. K.Allan started on the wing. It was another draw for the Rabbitohs Jersey Flegg, finishing a fiery contest in a 30-all draw with the North Sydney Bears. Round 3 of the competition saw the boys in the Cardinal and Myrtle take on the North Sydney Bears on a beautiful morning at the Rabbitohs’ spiritual home, the Metricon High Performance Centre at Redfern Oval. The Rabbitohs got off to an explosive start, with two early tries from hooker Josh Cook in the 2nd and 5th minutes of the game. Both efforts came from close range out of dummy half. The first try saw Cook barge over through three North Sydney defenders, while he fended off one defender and pushed past another for the second. Both tries were converted by halfback Blake Taaffe, giving the Rabbitohs an early 12-0 lead. The game then settled into a bit of an arm wrestle, with the Bears trying to force their way back into the game. The Rabbitohs managed to score again in the 22nd minute through back rower Malia Aluni-Chanfoon off a grubber kick on the last tackle. A series of penalties and errors by the Rabbitohs saw the Bears good field position late in the half, with Braeden Stewart-Thomas and Lennox Whittaker both nabbing tries in the 25th and 31st minutes respectively. Norths’ five-eighth Connor Garetty converted the second try, as the Rabbitohs took an 18-10 lead into the break. The Bears started the second half strongly, scoring after just 6 minutes through back-rower Mason McCarthy who ran a great hole on the left to stroll over the line untouched. The game took a spiteful turn in the 44th minute as a high shot by the Rabbitohs sparked an all-in brawl. Fortunately, no one was sent from the field and the game was allowed to continue. A penalty for the high shot saw Norths take possession for several sets in a row, breaking through the Rabbitoh’s defence in the 46th minute through replacement hooker Jackson Rohwed who scooted over from dummy half to score. The subsequent conversion from Garetty saw Norths take the lead for the first time in the game 20-18. The ensuing kick-off saw Norths dragged into touch, with a second all-in brawl erupting immediately after. Brock Gardner for Souths and Robert Afu for Norths were sent from the field for 10 minutes, reducing the game to 12 on 12. The Rabbitohs capitalized on the extra space with a try to left winger Nick Mougios in the 53rd minute. Taaffe converted from the sideline to put Souths back in the lead 24-20. This was followed by another Souths try, with Mougios breaking into the backfield before unloading to number 19 who scored untouched under the posts. Once again Taaffe converted the try and the Rabbitohs had a healthy 10 point lead over their opponents. Norths hit back quickly as the two sin-binned players return to the field, with Lennox Whittaker crashing over on the left for his second try of the day. Garetty failed to convert, which left his side trailing by 30-24. But the Bears got back in the final minute after a penalty, with a right side sweep seeing them score in the corner, with a sideline conversion on the bell giving the sides a 30-all draw.

NSWRL U18 SG Ball Cup Round 8

v Newcastle, Redfern Oval, Sat Mar 30 1:30pm

WIN 34-16

Late Changes - Sassine and Black dropped off the bench. After breaking a five-match losing streak last week down in Melbourne, the South Sydney SG Ball side went back-to-back for the first time this season with a commanding 34-16 win over the Knights. Halfback Brad Zampech was the star of the show, scoring three tries and kicking five goals, making up 22 of the side's 34 points. In the first twenty minutes of the match, the sides went tit-for-tat with two tries each, before Zampech's second try gave his side an eight-point lead at the break. The Cardinal and Myrtle then sprung to life, with a second-half blitz seeing three tries scored in fifteen minutes - including Zampech's third - sealing the result. It was the first time since Round 1 that both sides tasted victory in the same week, with the Redfern faithful more than ecstatic with the results.

NSWRL U16 Matthews Cup Round 8

v Newcastle, 12:00pm

WIN 30-16

Late Changes - N.Teaupa and Halaholo dropped off the bench. It was a top-of-the-table clash between the Harold Matthews Rabbitohs and Knights, with both sides yet to face defeat before their clash. Coming off their bye, the Red and Green were slow to react as Newcastle scored the first try of the match just two minutes in, but were quick to respond as captain and fullback Joseph Suaalii crossed a few minutes later. It then kicked-off a dominant first-half display from the home side, with tries to Joshua Mocevakaca, Izayah Tuigamala, Dranza Hawe-De-Thierry, Emmanuel Di Bartolo and William Taliai giving the side a commanding 30-10 lead at the half-time break. While the second stanza was much quieter in the points-scoring department, with the Knights crossing for a consolation try, it was a well-deserved victory for the Rabbitohs, who now sit alone at the top of the table as the only undefeated side in the competition.

Womens NSWRL Premiership - Round 2

v Canterbury, Stadium Australia, Sun Mar 31 4:05pm

WIN 18-4

Late Changes - Fonokalafi dropped off the bench. The South Sydney Rabbitohs Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership side have kicked off their 2019 season in style against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in Round 3 of the competition at ANZ Stadium with an 18-4 win. The Rabbitohs displayed some desperate defence early on, as a break from the Bulldogs was shut down by fullback Karri Doyle. Although a penalty set up the Bulldogs to set up to score the first points, winger Rikka Lamb dived on a loose pass to prevent her side from conceding early on. It was halfback Emily Young’s turn to stop the attack, chasing down her opposite Shannon Evans who made a break on the right-hand side to stop her in her tracks. Centre Emma Gillogly shut down a two-on-one situation, and a kick from the Bulldogs gave the Red and Green a seven-tackle set as it went dead. The Rabbitohs made a similar attacking raid, and just like their opponents, a kick by five-eighth Candice Clay gave a seven-tackle set. A penalty in the tackle then gave Souths a prime opportunity to claim the first points of the match, but points went begging as a three-on-one overlap wasn’t capitalised on. A ball-strip call on Rhianna Sutherland saw another opportunity for the home side, which was taken by five-eighth Clay, who burrowed over from dummy-half to score her side’s first points of the game and year. Captain Rebecca Riley then took the reigns, swerving through the defence after making a break from dummy-half to set up a goal-line drop-out, only for an error to take pressure off the Bulldogs. A penalty then gave their opponents their own chance to get on the board, but the Rabbitohs defence forced an error twenty metres from the line, halting their short-lived momentum. Clay continued to wreak havoc, this time with the boot, putting up a pinpoint bomb, only for the final Riley and bench forward Meleanna Waters combined to force an error from the Dogs, again executing their dominance. That dominance would turn into points as a well-executed sweep on the right edge saw winger Rikka Lamb dive over in the corner to score her own four-pointer. Ill-discipline crept into the side with back to back penalties, which then saw Bulldogs winger Cindy Edwards touch down in the corner to close the gap to four at the break. An error on the first set of the second stanza could have proven costly, but the strong defensive effort from the Rabbitohs prevented further points being scored against them. Further defensive cohesion, notably by experienced campaigners Gillogly and Lamb on the right shut down the Dogs, which then forced an error in the Rabbitohs’ half. Errors and penalties from the side continued to half momentum and hand their opponents opportunities, who nearly went over again only for a wayward pass to travel forward. But back-to-back penalties from the Bulldogs helped the Rabbitohs gain territory, only for the second kick for touch to be regathered by the blue and white. The Red and Green then gained the ascendency with a group tackle forcing a Bulldogs player out, which then saw front rower Moniqca Moale crash over to extend the lead. Candice Clay’s conversion then gave the side a ten-point buffer with less than a third of the match left. With the wind behind their backs, the Rabbitohs made plenty of ground on their next set, with some committed defence pinning the Bulldogs behind the try-line and forcing a drop-out. The added momentum brought the side to life, with Gillogly getting a well-deserved try, pushing through the defence and crashing over just minutes later, sealing the Rabbitohs’ first win of the season in front of an emphatic Red and Green crowd.
