LOSS 14-26

A virtuoso performance from Eels halfback Mitch Moses has helped his side snap a three-game losing streak with a 26-14 win over the under-strength Rabbitohs at Bankwest Stadium on Friday night. Already missing a host of players through injury, Souths were further hit by the Origin selection of four players but remained committed with rookies Connor Tracey and Billy Brittain impressing. But after three straight defeats, including arguably their worst of the year in a dire loss at home to last-placed Penrith in round 11, the Eels bounced back impressively after coach Brad Arthur dropped four players. Moses was the dominant force, setting up three tries and kicking superbly after some poor early short kicks and running more than 160 metres. Bench forward David Gower was the best in the pack, bending the line with every carry with a line break and two offloads. Debutant Tracey was close to Souths' best with a mammoth 13 tackle busts and almost 200 metres at five-eighth. Most of the first half was played in the Rabbitohs' end but poor execution from the Eels particularly on end-of-set attacking kicks eventually saw Souths take a 2-0 lead from a gift penalty in front midway through the half. The Eels levelled up just inside the half hour mark when debutant hooker Billy Brittain compounded an error with an offside penalty. The Eels came alive straight after that though, surging downfield in the set after points before Clint Gutherson touched down on Moses' first pinpoint attacking kick of the night. Four minutes later, Moses scythed clean through the line and offloaded for Blake Ferguson to score, and in five minutes a 2-all score had blown out to 14-2 in favour of the home side. A line break from Gower set the Eels on the attack again early in the second half and after some enterprising side-to-side attack a Michael Jennings flick pass put Maika Sivo over in the corner. Souths clawed one back midway through the half when Thomas Burgess got low and drove his way over from close range but the Eels pulled away again when Josh Hoffman capitalised on a right-side move with a brilliant angled run to the line. Needing three tries in the final 15 minutes, the Bunnies eventually got one with seven minutes remaining when Junior Tatola crashed over but they spilled the ball in the set after points and another Moses penalty goal helped wind down the clock and seal the 26-14 result.

Reserve Grade - Canterbury NSW Premiership Round 11

v Wentworthville, Ringrose Park, Sun Jun 2 3:00pm

WIN 20-14

Late Changes - O'Connor and Gordon are out. Paulo starts on the wing. The South Sydney Rabbitohs Canterbury Cup side have completed a David and Goliath battle against the Wentworthville Magpies, overcoming injuries and defeating a side with over 400 NRL games worth of experience to claim a famous 20-14 victory. Despite being without a number of players, including captain Billy Brittain and five-eighth Connor Tracey, who featured in the NRL side on Friday night, while also suffering injuries throughout the game, the Red and Green put in a performance the forefathers of the Club would be proud of. It was a tough start for the side as the first-grade class of Wentworthville, which included the likes of Bevan French, Tim Mannah, Daniel Alvaro, Matt McIlwrick and Oregon Kaufusi set a high tempo from the outset, with the Magpies scoring two quick tries in succession to set up a 10-nil lead. However, as the Rabbitohs managed to find their groove into the match, Canterbury Cup debutant Kane Allan managed to score in the corner thanks to some clever play from hooker Josh Cook, who drew in defenders and threw a basketball-like pass for his winger to touch down. The sideline conversion from halfback Dean Hawkins then closed the deficit to four. A strong set from the kick-off, which included a deft kick from five-eighth Blake Taaffe pinned Wentworthville behind their 20, as well as a huge hit from prop Rhys Kennedy managed to dislodge the ball and give the side further possession. With a number of sets on the line, a quick play the ball from Kennedy saw Cook swoop and score a trademark try next to the posts, and with Hawkins easily slotting the goal, all of a sudden it was the Red and Green who held the lead with fifteen to go in the half. Back-to-back errors from both sides halted momentum momentarily, however, a knock-on from the Rabbitohs gave the Magpies a chance to score, which nearly eventuated as a chip kick saw Jaemon Salmon soar in the air to claim the ball, only for him to lose it on the way down. But it was the Rabbitohs who came off second best, as halfback Dean Hawkins was forced from the field with a shoulder injury. His replacement, Jack Johns, immediately stamped his authority on the match, with a towering spiral bomb, which was knocked on by their opponents, only for a Souths player to be called offside. The ensuing penalty gave Wentworthville a chance to hit back, but the desperate and committed defensive pressure of the Rabbitohs forced a seven-tackle set, however, an early shift on Wentworthville's next set saw them score right before half-time. The second stanza proved to be a true display of commitment in The Rabbitoh Way, as both sides looked to gain the ascendency from the outset. And the Rabbitohs looked to be ahead with a linebreak from new signing Jaxson Paulo coupled with a deft kick from Jack Johns setting up a much-needed line drop-out. And Paulo looked to be over for his first try in Red and Green, as a shift from five-eighth Blake Taaffe saw fill-in-skipper Jacob Gagan send the winger over, only for the final pass to be called forward. Paulo continued to showcase his class, making a one-handed catch in the in-goal to earn his side a seven-tackle set and then putting Gagan through for a half break with a well-timed pass. Just as fatigue began to affect both sides, it was the Red and Green who capitalised as Jacob Gagan made up for his previous mistake, scooping up a wayward pass and running 60 metres to score under the posts. The Rabbitohs continued to dig deep, despite the Magpies' wealth of NRL experience, with the side forcing errors and gaining strong territory. A break from Johns saw the Magpies give away a penalty right in front of the tryline on the next set, and Shane Millard's men opted to kick for goal, with new Rabbitoh Levi Dodd extending the lead to six. The final ten minutes of the match saw the Magpies with the weight of possession, but the Red and Green defence failed to give in, forcing a number of errors and preventing the home side from scoring in the second half to complete and emphatic victory.

U20 NSW Jersey Flegg Cup - Round 9

v Parramatta, Ringrose Park, Sat Jun 2 11:00am

LOSS 18-31

Late Changes - Frasca was out. Fepulai started at acentre, ANglanga on the wing, Zaurini at hooker with Mamouzelous and Piukana on the bench. The South Sydney Rabbitohs Jersey Flegg side have been defeated by the Parramatta Eels 31-18 at Ringrose Park on Sunday. A makeshift side without halfback Blake Taaffe and hooker Josh Cook were out-enthused by a determined Parramatta. However, the side had plenty of chances to compete with their opponents only for error and discipline to cruel them. And it wasn't an ideal start for the Red and Green, as the Eels scored two quick tries within the first fifteen minutes - both coming off kicks - to gain an early 12-nil lead. The Rabbitohs squandered early chances, which included a late offload leading to the Eels' first try, and a lack of urgency seeing a grubber earning the opponents score their second. More ill-discipline saw the Eels handed further possession, and soon after they crossed under the posts for their third try with less than a quarter of the match gone. There was a glimmer of hope for the Red and Green, however, as an error from their opponents from the ensuing kick-off gifted them prime field position, but it was another chance gone begging as the ball was lost just three tackles into the set. A contentious strip call went the way of the Eels, and just as it looked like they would extend their lead, the Red and Green defence set in motion to force an error. The injection of livewire hooker Peter Mamouzelos saw the side get on the scoreboard five minutes before the break, with the young rake setting up his outside men to break through before diving over himself under the posts. And the side looked to go over again as Mamouzelos broke through, with a deft kick from second rower Maila Aluni-Chanfoon seeing Zane Bijorac nearly score, only to be thrown into touch. The momentum transitioned early in the second half, with plenty of quick play the balls and more comfortable play from the spine giving the Red and Green field position and scoring opportunities, but again, dropped ball saw the side's chances go begging. That, coupled with the lack of urgency close to the line cost the side dearly, with the Eels scoring two quick tries to extend their lead to 30-6. However, the Rabbitohs made a late surge, scoring through backrower Maila Aluni-Chanfoon and fullback James Tautaiolefua on the next set saw the side down just two converted tries with plenty of time still remaining. But an inability to complete, as well as a field goal to the Eels three minutes from fulltime sealed the match, with the side's three-match winning streak coming to an end.
