LOSS 9-14

An individual piece of brilliance from Michael Chee-Kam has helped secure Wests Tigers a nail-biting 14-9 victory over South Sydney at Bankwest Stadium on Thursday night. The Bunnies took a 9-8 lead through the boot of Adam Reynolds with six minutes remaining but Chee-Kam did it all himself for the second time this season to steal a win for the joint venture, splitting past the Bunnies' No.7 in the following set and racing 40 metres to the line. The result was the Bunnies' fourth loss on the trot and compounded a disappointing night for the club with the immediate future of George Burgess under a cloud after the prop was placed on report for an alleged eye gouge on Robbie Farah early in the contest. Wests Tigers opted for an early penalty goal through the Burgess incident but the Rabbitohs were quick to respond with two points of their own after Benji Marshall failed to deliver a line dropout on time to concede a penalty from in front. The Tigers lost Moses Mbye for 15 minutes next with the Maroons utility falling heavily on the Bankwest Stadium turf to require a head injury assessment. Mbye later returned but not in time to stop the Bunnies crossing for their first try with returning centre Braidon Burns running a strong line off John Sutton to help send Corey Allan over under the posts. The Rabbitohs looked to have the upper hand late in the opening half but their error count began to rise with the slippery surface under foot. Wests Tigers finally made use of their 23 possessions inside the Rabbitohs' 20-metre zone to send Corey Thompson over via the boot of Luke Brooks before halftime to level the game. Both sides left a lot to be desired on the paddock in the second half, so much so that it took a couple of ground invaders side-stepping security to bring the crowd to its feet. The Bunnies rallied late to break an 8-8 deadlock with Reynolds slotting a 74th minute field goal at a slippery Bankwest Stadium in front of 9,807 people but Chee-Kam had the final say two minutes later.

Reserve Grade - Canterbury NSW Premiership Round 14

v Western Suburbs, Campbelltown Stadium, Sun Jun 30 1:10pm

WIN 34-16

Late Changes - C.Allan and Dodd are out. Higgins at fullback, Paulo and O'Connor on the wing, Hiroti at centre and Butler on the bench. The South Sydney Rabbitohs Canterbury Cup side have come away with a 34-16 victory against the Western Suburbs Magpies in the second leg of the Kelly-Sattler Cup at Campbelltown Sports Stadium. It was a classic match of football at Campbelltown, with both sides throwing everything they had at each other in the early stages, with Wests taking the first win by forcing a dropout. But little did they know that the adventurous Rabbitohs would turn a bad situation into a good one, with Shane Millard's short dropout tactic reaping the rewards as the Red and Green regathered possession. Adam Doueihi, making his Canterbury Cup debut, controlled the match at five-eighth, firstly by putting in an attacking grubber to force an error from the Magpies, then by setting up the opening try of the match by sending over Jack Johns over the line with a beautiful short ball. With Mawene Hiroti's conversion successful, the Rabbitohs held a 6-nil lead after five minutes. Doueihi continued to control the side alongside hooker Billy Brittain and halfback Connor Tracey, with the trio combining up the middle to split their opponents up on the next set - but the sequence would see the Rabbitohs lose possession after a lost ball. Errors would then cruel the chances of both sides throughout a dire period in the first half, before Jacob Gagan took a bomb in the in goal to give his side a seven-tackle set, then taking a quick tap to get the Red and Green on the front-foot. An ensuing penalty for a high tackle on the centre then saw the Rabbitohs deep inside Magpies territory and a well-executed right-side shift saw fullback Leigh Higgins double the side's lead. And the Red and Green looked to be in once again, with Gagan making a bust on the left-side, only for a desperate behind the back flick pass being intercepted by their opponents. Red and Green continued to gain the ascendency, with Higgins and Jaxson Paulo making half breaks before getting caught in desperate tackles. Despite the Rabbitohs chancing their arm with the ball in hand, it was Wests who would score next in the corner, with an overlap giving them space to get on the board after 33 minutes. The final ten minutes of the first half saw a number of adventurous plays, with both sides eager to take home the Kelly-Sattler Cup, but it was the Rabbitohs who held a 12-4 advantage. But the Magpies would go back to back with a last-tackle play by the Rabbitohs intercepted, and with the added possession it would be the home side who bridged the gap to two points. Things got bad to worse for the Red and Green, with Brock Gray conceding a penalty then getting sent to the sin bin by impeding a player taking a quick tap. With South Sydney a man down, the Magpies would then take the lead for the first time in the match, with a ricocheted grubber kick giving them two back-to-back sets resulting in a try under the posts to Braden Robson. With Wests in control, it seemed like nothing the Rabbitohs could do would benefit their chances, with Connor Tracey picking up an attacking bomb only for the ball to be lost on the next set. But just as the situation began to look dire, an obstruction penalty brought the Red and Green back in the contest, with a forced dropout giving them a momentum swing. Further possession was earned through a Wests penalty, and it was jubilation for the Red and Green faithful who made the road trip out west, with the added possession giving former Magpie Bayley Sironen a chance to stretch over and score. Mawene Hiroti's conversion saw the Red and Green take the lead once again with just over a quarter of the match remaining. The Red and Green and black and white continued to clash, with both sides throwing everything in their arsenals to claim victory, it was the home side who were a little too enthusiastic, with a late shot on fullback Leigh Higgins, and backchat to the ref seeing the Rabbitohs go sixty metres just from kicks for touch. With that added possession, a left-side shift saw Higgins send over his winger Dylan O'Connor with a well-timed offload, crossing in the corner in an acrobatic effort. Hiroti put in a clutch performance with the boot, slicing the sideline conversion to give his side an all-important six-point lead. In unfortunate circumstances, an error from the kick-off, coupled with a penalty and a strip call going against Hiroti gave the Magpies three back-to-back sets. But thankfully for the Rabbitohs, the sides would then exchange errors, with the Rabbitohs eventually ending up with the ball after an error-riddled five minutes. With the ball back in hand, Billy Brittain took the game by the scruff of the neck, sending front rower Ky Rodwell over the line with a well-timed pass from the ruck. Not content with just the two points, the Rabbitohs opted to tap instead of going for goal after a penalty in front, and it was front rower Tom Amone who sent his halfback Connor Tracey over for the try that sealed the first-ever Kelly-Sattler Cup.

U20 NSW Jersey Flegg Cup - Round 13

v Wests-Tigers, 3:10pm

LOSS 24-38

Late Changes - Stowers was out. Angianga started at prop. Taumoepeau on the bench. 2 minutes into the game Kane Allan was taken from the field. Bijorac shifted to right wing and Angianga into the centre. The South Sydney Rabbitohs Jersey Flegg side has had their three-match winning streak halted after being defeated 38-24 by the Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Sports Stadium in their Round 16 clash. The match started horrendously for the visiting Rabbitohs, with winger Kane Allan's afternoon over just after a couple of minutes after being taken high while collecting a bomb. But his teammates would soon look to inspire each other after their teammate was forced from the field, with the right-side defencing working as a unit to send their opponents into touch a few sets later. And that nearly did the trick, with a grubber kick going just too far for centre Nick Mougios, who's celebrations were cut short as the referee deemed the ball to be put into touch before he could put it down. Next, it would be a Tigers player receiving treatment, and when a penalty was called after the stoppage due to a late hit, the Rabbitohs then gave away an inexcusable offside penalty, which resulted in the first try of the match going to the home side. Not to be deterred, the Red and Green would give the perfect reply, with halfback and former Tiger Lachlan Ilias swooping on a pass to intercept the ball and run 30 metres to level the scores. The contest would continue to seesaw, this time with the Tigers hitting out wide to return serve and take back the lead - and they nearly went over again a few minutes later with an attacking kick from the wing being reeled in by Ilias. A linebreak late in the first half by James Tautaiolefua saw South Sydney back in control, with an ensuing penalty seeing both sides come together in a classic flare-up. But it would ultimately be a lost opportunity for the Rabbitohs, with a forward pass to second rower Matt French right on the line handing over possession. Not willing to lie down without a fight, the closing stages of the first stanza saw the Red and Green right on the attack, but the bounce of the ball continued to cruel the side. But with just minutes remaining before the break, the home side would pounce on an intercept of their own, with a kick this time being regathered just before getting to touch. Despite a tough end to the first half, the Rabbitohs were immediately back in the contest after Matthew French crashed over to score, and with Taaffe's conversion, the Red and Green closed the deficit to six. The Tigers would be quick to reply, however, firstly forcing an error to gain possession on halfway, then taking a Rabbitoh into touch, which eventually saw them scoring under the posts to bring back their twelve-point lead with ten gone in the second half. Wests would make it two tries in as many minutes as a one-on-one strip against Tautaiolefua saw them with the ball just ten metres from the line, with a penalty try given after the referee deemed the Rabbitohs to have taken out a player with a clear chance to score from a grubber kick. A dropped ball from Taaffe then saw the Tigers streak away, scoring on their next set out wide to continue their lead. Ilias looked to get his side back in the contest again, this time regathering a ricocheted kick, which eventually saw Josh Cook dive over to score, giving the side a glimmer of hope with just under fifteen minutes remaining. A penalty for a high shot on Cook, followed by a knock on gave South Sydney another chance to reply, but a cruel bounce from a kick from the hooker saw Ilias drop the ball over the line. With five minutes to go, Ilias would bag his double with a sidestep fooling the opposition defence, and with the ensuing kick-off going out on the full, it was now or never for the daring young Rabbitohs. But in a moment that summed up the match, a looping pass found its way into the first row of the grandstand, ending all hope of a comeback.

Womens NSWRL Premiership - Round 9

v Wests-Tigers, Campbelltown Stadium, Sun Jun 30 11:20am

LOSS 10-18

Late Changes - Davis-Welsh, Karpani, Fonokalafi and Boney were out/ McGrady started fullback, Baird and Young on the wing, Gillongly at centre. The South Sydney Rabbitohs Harvey Norman Women's Premiership side have gone down 18-10 against the Wests Tigers at Campbelltown Stadium. It was an undesired start for the Red and Green, with a penalty on their first set leading to a try for the Tigers after just two minutes. After their first mistake, the Red and Green grew with each play of the match, forcing a number of errors to give them possession. A half-break from centre Tayla Pilley and some quick thinking from halfback Akira Kelly put the Tigers on the back foot, giving the Rabbitohs a shift in momentum. The left side of the field continued to give the Rabbitohs their strike power, with fullback Sharon McGrady continually questioning the Tigers' defence with a number of weaving runs and half-breaks. While McGrady's heroics wouldn't reap the side any immediate rewards, a forced error just twenty metres from their opponents' line gave the side their first opportunity to score. The right side then finished off what the left had started, with young winger Nikki Baird pouncing on a dropped Lavina O'Mealey bomb. With the conversion unsuccessful, the scores remained at 4-all with just over a quarter of the match complete. Despite the dry track, errors were plentiful for both sides throughout the first half, with neither side able to gain any ascendency, with a powerful defensive set on the Rabbitohs' line prevented Wests from scoring again, with centre Emma Gillogly and front rower Moniqca Mo'Ale showing desperation in defence. Baird's efforts in defence didn't go unnoticed either, with a brave dive to regather an attacking grubber kick showing her intent to not only score tries but save them too. With the clock ticking down, the Rabbitohs continued to work as a unit, with strong runs from winger Emily Young and McGrady putting the side on the front foot, and a well-timed offload from Mo'Ale sending Kelly downfield, but dropped ball on the next set ended it there for the first half. Another early forced error saw the Rabbitohs with a prime opportunity to extend their lead, which saw Karri Doyle cross over the line, only for the ball to be lost during the grounding. But two-quick fire tries in the space of three minutes would see the Tigers not only gain the ascendency but a ten-point lead with just under fifteen minutes to go. And the Tigers would go in again after a Rabbitohs error gave them possession 20 metres from the line, with a strong defensive set from the Cardinal and Myrtle ending in a try for their opponents after a shift of play opened up space on last tackle. A bone-rattling tackle from Candice Clay looked to inspire the side late in the contest, with a late try to Doyle not enough to secure victory in a hard-fought contest.
