Late Changes

Hiroti and Tracey were trimmed 24 hours before the match. George Burgess and Corey Allan were 18th and 19th men.

LOSS 18-19

James Maloney made an 11th hour bid for a NSW recall after leading Penrith to their fourth consecutive win with a 77th minute field goal against Souths at ANZ Stadium on Saturday. With Maloney and incumbent Blues halves Nathan Cleary and Cody Walker involved in the match, there was much more than just two competition points on the line and the veteran playmaker did his best to remind NSW coach Brad Fittler of his match-winning qualities. Maloney’s field goal from 20 metres out and to the left of the uprights secured Penrith a 19-18 win over the second-placed Rabbitohs. With George Burgess joining brothers Sam (shoulder) and Tom (suspended) on the sideline after being taken to hospital on Friday night with a stomach complaint, the Rabbitohs forwards stocks were severely depleted. Lock Cameron Murray was also suffering from a virus which forced him to miss Friday’s captain’s run but he played and came up with the first try of the match after forcing the ball loose from Cleary in Penrith’s in-goal and getting a hand on it to score in the 17th minute. Five-eighth Adam Doueihi converted after taking over the goalkicking duties from Dane Gagai, who had a missed an earlier attempt from in front. However, the absence of halfback Adam Reynolds and Sam Burgess and James Roberts being new at the club meant that the Rabbitohs had three new faces in their right edge and that is where the Panthers aimed their attack. Giant Penrith second-rower Viliame Kikau eventually cracked Souths defensive line after running onto a Maloney pass to score in the 30th minute and put his team in the lead for the first time following Cleary’s conversion. The Panthers went further ahead eight minutes after halftime when rookie centre Brent Naden leapt above the defence to grab a perfectly placed Cleary kick and score. It was Cleary’s first try assist since round six. After putting through the grubber kick for Murray’s try, Rabbitohs hooker Damien Cook produced his 16th try assist of this season – the most by any player in the NRL - when he ran out of dummy half and put prop Liam Knight over in the 56th minute. Souths regained the lead just two minutes later when Walker threw a long pass on his own 20-metre line to put Roberts on the outside of Josh Mansour and the speedster sprinted into the clear before sending Gagai racing for the line. Penrith winger Brian To’o hit back for the visitors to level the scores at 18-18 with his first NRL try 10 minutes from full-time after Cleary linked with fullback Dylan Edwards to create an overlap on the right edge. Cleary missed the sideline conversion and To’o lost the ball in the set after the re-start to give the Rabbitohs an opportunity to set up for a field goal but Walker’s attempt went wide and Maloney made sure of his shot at the other end to secure the win.

Reserve Grade - Canterbury NSW Premiership Round 13

v Penrith, 3:15pm

WIN 36-16

Late Changes - Kennedy was out. Allan started fullback, Higgins on the wing, Gray at prop, Hills at second row, Sironen at lock and Jensen on the bench. The South Sydney Rabbitohs Canterbury Cup side have completed an emphatic comeback against the Penrith Panthers at ANZ Stadium for Members' Appreciation Round. Down 16-8 at the break, the Red and Green went on a try-scoring blitz in the second half, touching down three times in the space of seven minutes to steal the lead and ultimately the game 36-16. A number of changes before kick-off were made, with the side bolstered by the addition of Corey Allan, Mawene Hiroti and Connor Tracey and front rowers Tom Amone and Rhys Kennedy named to in the extended NRL side. It was an undesired start for Shane Millard's men, with a penalty on the first set of the match giving Penrith an opportunity to score early, but luckily for the Red and Green, an error from their opponents eased early pressure. The Rabbitohs would get a penalty themselves on their first set with the ball in hand, and with the side coming off the momentum from last week's victory, it was Jacob Gagan who crossed over after just three minutes to open the scoring. With Hiroti back on kicking duties after his NRL stint, the winger nailed the sideline conversion to give the Red and Green a 6-nil lead with as many minutes gone. And the side would continue their momentum with strong running and tireless defence, however, back-to-back errors would soon see the Panthers strike out wide through Jed Cartwright. But thanks to an unsuccessful conversion, the Rabbitohs would hold the lead after fifteen minutes. With the Panthers now with the wind behind them, a number of half-breaks and penalties saw them stake their claim, but a loose ball scooped up by Leigh Higgins saw the winger dash 80 metres downfield to put the Rabbitohs on the front foot again. A penalty on the ensuing set then saw Hiroti point for the sticks and put the side up by four after a quarter of the match complete. But ill-discipline soon crept in as sloppy pass saw the side hand over possession 30 metres from the try line, and Penrith would take the lead for the first time with Kaide Ellis barging over the line. And the Panthers would continue to apply pressure, with a 40/20 on the next set giving them the ball in the once again putting them in the Rabbitohs' red zone, but the Red and Green wall held strong, forcing an error and halting their progress. A high tackle on Jack Johns then put the home side over halfway, and a quick tap from Lyndon Hills looked like the front rower was over for all money, only for the ball to come loose as he went down. That missed opportunity proved to be a big turning point in the match, with the Panthers striking once again just before half-time through Kurt Falls to give themselves an eight-nil advantage. Not deterred from their deficit, the Rabbitohs roared in their opening set with fullback Corey Allan making a break, and Billy Brittain putting in a well-weighted kick that saw Penrith start their opening set ten metres from their try line. And the perfect start to the second stanza continued with the Red and Green's aggressive defence forcing an error from their opponents, but in another let-off for the Panthers, the final pass on a left-hand shift saw the ball in the first row of seating. Brittain's second half continued to impress, with the captain leading his troops with another deft kick and darting runs, but again the side failed to execute their last-tackle options. A Connor Tracey break on the left nearly saw the wily five-eighth cross in the corner, but the Penrith defence forced the playmaker into touch in what was another lost opportunity. But both five-eighth and hooker would push their side over the advantage line, and with the extra space, the left side got it right this time around with Hiroti crossing in the corner. It was an unlucky finish for the winger, however, as his conversion hit the uprights to leave the deficit at four points. A penalty on the resumption gave the Rabbitohs the perfect ammunition to strike again in quick succession, and again it was the left-hand side with Corey Allan crossing on the next set. Not to be deterred from the missed conversion, a kick out on the full gave the Rabbitohs the perfect chance to get their third try in succession, but the Panthers were able to gather a Blake Taaffe kick close to the line to prevent the Red and Green from scoring again. But again, an error from their opponents gave another chance to the home side, with Allan nearly over again only for a forward pass from Gagan denying him his double. That then allowed the Panthers to gain the ascendency, with a penalty on Tracey for being offside gifting them another set of six, but a great defensive read from Leigh Higgins saw the winger bundle his opposition winger into touch. The effort then saw the Rabbitohs score a landslide of tries with winger Dylan O'Connor taking the lead for the side, and lock Brock Gray scoring with Hiroti bagging his double in a seven-minute period. A try two minutes from fulltime to O'Connor completed the comeback.

U20 NSW Jersey Flegg Cup - Round 11

v Penrith, 1:35pm

WIN 23-22

Late Changes - Zampech and Fepuliai were out. K.Allan started fullback, Frasca on the wing, Tautaiolefua at five-eighth, Zaurini at hooker and Mamouzelous on the bench. The South Sydney Rabbitohs Jersey Flegg side have come away with a miraculous victory against the Penrith Panthers at ANZ Stadium on Members Appreciation Round. A Lachlan Ilias field goal in the final minute of play saw the side come back from an 18-4 deficit to defeat the Panthers 23-22. The side began strongly in their first set of the match, making sixty metres after receiving the kick-off and defending stoutly to prevent their opponents from gaining ground in defence. However, it was the Panthers who would score first, with a penalty giving them the territory to strike after five minutes. The bounce of the ball on fifth tackle nearly saw Penrith scoring again, but the scrambling defence of the Rabbitohs ensured they wouldn't concede a second try in as many minutes. Their opponents nearly scored again as a charge down nearly landed in the arms of the Panthers, only for the ball to be knocked on. In more bad news for the Red and Green, centre and captain Nick Mougios was forced from the field after fifteen minutes for a head injury assessment. But just as they looked down and out, coming off the scrum a beautiful ball from Lachlan Ilias saw centre Jaxson Paulo steam downfield, giving the side the much-needed territory to see fullback James Tautaiolefua slice through to score the first try of the afternoon. Despite the missed conversion, the Rabbitohs we well and truly in the contest. Another unfortunate bounce of the ball went against the Red and Green just minutes later, with a Panthers kick just falling short of the dead-ball line, and with the Steeden bouncing up and hitting the legs of Zane Bijorac, the Rabbitohs were forced to kick a drop-out. Luckily for the side, however, the Panthers made an error themselves on the next set, with an overlap squandered seeing the final pass go out on the full. The disciplined defensive efforts of the Rabbitohs soon reaped rewards, with a Panthers error on halfway gifting the side another opportunity to strike, only for an uncharacteristic error to give their opponents possession. And the error led to more points for their opponents, with Penrith scoring on last tackle through their other second rower Terrell May to extend their lead to eight points with less than ten minutes in the half remaining. Paulo continued to wreak havoc on the left-hand side of the field, carrying multiple defenders with each carry, but the young centre's efforts were undone when he was forced out of the field of play to give the Panthers the ball once again. An error from a grubber from their opponents close to the line then gave another set to Penrith on the Rabbitohs' line, and they managed to cross again to go ahead 18-4 at the break. The Panthers nearly landed another blow on resumption, with a left-side break leading to an overlap - however, the final pass to the winger was called forward in what was a huge let-off for the Red and Green. Despite Penrith throwing numerous attacking raids, the home side was able to prevent further damage. The resilient Rabbitohs went on the front foot with a massive break from Kane Allan seeing the winger streak downfield, and with back-to-back sets, Lachlan Ilias stepped his way through the line to score. With the halfback converting his own try, it was just eight points separating the sides. Ilias continued to lead the side, with his boot providing yet another trademark spiral bomb to trap the Panthers in their half, and with multiple errors frustrating their opponents, the Rabbitohs would make ground once again, this time through a James Tautaiolefua break. And the clever ruck play by the side would see Jack Frasca score as the halfback and fullback combined to go back-to-back. With Ilias' sideline conversion, the gap then closed to two points. With the momentum fully behind them, the Rabbitohs made another charge for the line, and with back-to-back penalties on second rower Maila Aluni-Chanfoon, the side was over again as hulking front rower Augustine Stowers barged over to score. The efforts of the Red and Green were rewarded again as a last-tackle kick led to another set of six for the side just ten metres from the line, with the Panthers forcing the ball forward. The enthusiasm of the young side seemed to get the better of them though, with a looping cut-out pass finding the touchline. But the Panthers themselves would capitalise on a six-again call themselves, and would cross soon after. With the conversion unsuccessful, the scores were now level with less than ten to go. A frantic final ten minutes saw a number of opportunities lost for both teams, with the Panthers throwing the ball around to get tackled on last, and a Lachlan Ilias break thwarted with a dropped ball on the line. But an error from the Panthers on the line with less than a minute remaining gave the Cardinal and Myrtle one last shot at victory, and it was the number seven who redeemed himself with a clutch field goal to snatch victory for the side.

U20 NSW Jersey Flegg Cup - Round 12

v Canberra, Crestwood Oval, Sun Jun 23 11:00am

WIN 28-12

Late Changes - Bain is out. Angianga starts at prop, Fepuleai on the bench. The match had been relocated from Redfern Oval to be a preliminary game to the Hills District Sydney Shield and RM Cup matches after the heavy weather on the eastern seaboard. The South Sydney Rabbitohs Jersey Flegg side have kept in touch with the top four after a comprehensive 28-12 victory over the Canberra Raiders at Crestwood Oval in their Round 15 clash. The change in venue coinciding with the return of halfback and captain Blake Taaffe and hooker Josh Cook, two of the mainstays of the side, with the former having played Canterbury Cup in recent weeks with the latter overcoming injury. But it would be Tallis Angianga - deputising in the front row as opposed to his preferred centre position - who would star early with an early double to give the side a ten-nil lead midway through the first half. The Raiders would respond with a try of their own ten minutes before the break to close the gap to four points, but the Rabbitohs would regain the ascendency through bench forward Lachlan Gale to see the scores at 16-6 at the break. The scores would remain for the opening ten minutes of the first half, but again it was the Red and Green who drew first blood with winger Jack Frasca going over, with Taaffe's conversion giving the side a handy 22-6 lead after 50 minutes. And the Cardinal and Myrtle would seal their third win on the trot with a try to Jaxson Paulo a further ten minutes later, with the young centre's putdown extending the lead to twenty. While the Raiders managed to score a consolation try of their own in the final minutes, it was the Rabbitohs who took home the points at their home away from home in Baulkham Hills.
