WIN 32-24

Proud Bundjalung and Yuin man Cody Walker has put in a virtuoso performance to guide South Sydney to an impressive comeback 32-24 win to kick off the NRL's Indigenous Round at Netstrata Jubilee Stadium on Thursday night. The Dragons earned their first try against the run of play as Tariq Sims crunched Reynolds as he retrieved his own grubber from a Dragons deflection and the ball came free. It was scooped up by Corey Norman with a flying Dufty in support finishing off the 90-metre team try in just the seventh minute. South Sydney lost Adam Reynolds to a shoulder injury as a result of the tackle. This caused a major team reshuffle with Sironen going to halfback and Murray to left second row. A hesitant Campbell Graham was caught out of position by a brilliant face-ball from Dufty put Euan Aitken over untouched in the 12th minute before the same two players combined again, Dufty putting Aitken through a gap then supporting to score himself to make it 16-0 in as many minutes. It looked like it was going to be Matt Dufty's night. But with his side down 16-0 after 16 minutes, Walker put the team on his shoulders. Another penalty helped Souths upfield and opened the door for the visitors, with a jinking Walker solo try kick-starting the score board and firing up the team. It could have been back-to-back tries but Alex Johnston was controversially ruled to have put his foot into touch as he set up Damien Cook with the line wide open. Souths had their second soon after. The Dragons were on the attack from a dropped ball by Mitchell before a poor Dufty pass was intercepted by Johnston to run the length and bring SOuths back into the game at 10-16. Johnston had yet another moment of brilliance with a line break off a great Mitchell cut out pass on the 40m line in the 36th minute, kicking back inside for Mitchell scoop up the ball and score, getting the Bunnies back to level pegging 16 all at half-time. Johnston had his second soon after the break and handing Souths the lead for the first time, when a poor read from Zac Lomax allowed him to cross untouched in the 48th minute. The Dragons then hit back, with Tyson Frizell winning the race to a Ben Hunt grubber in a contriversial grounding to square back up at 20-all. Another nice ball to Mitchell put Dane Gagai into space and from the next play against a retreating defence allow Nicholls to put a running Walker through in a brilliant line for his second try and allowed Souths to reclaim the lead. Johnston iced the win and capped his own personal best game of the year with another long-range intercept try six minutes from time. The try being his 93rd first grade premiership career try. There was a consolation try to Mikaela Ravalawa from a nice Tristan Sailor grubber in the final minute but it wasn't enough to give the Souths any late scares as they pushed their way, at least temporarily, back into the top eight. There was an extra blow for the Dragons late with Euan Aitken suffering a hamstring injury in the final minutes of the contest. Walker had played both the steady halfback role and the evasive running five-eighth role to brilliant effect, with every point scored by the Rabbitohs provided by a trio of Indigenous stars. Latrell Mitchell (Biripi) provided a try and four goals while Alex Johnston (Saibai Island) scored a hat-trick.

Rabbitohs coach Wayne Bennett said Reynolds should be a chance of returning as soon as next week. "[Reynolds has] got what they call a burner in the shoulder, he's pretty sore and tender at the moment," Bennett said. "No one's quite sure where that's going to go or how long it will take. Nerves create that type of situation. There was never a point he was coming back. Nobody suggested it to me at half-time. He was trying to get it feeling better but it wasn't. I wasn't going to put any pressure on anybody. We've got nobody coming out of the game that has any problems that would prevent them being available next week."

NSWRL Womens Premiership - Round 3

v Wentworthville, Erskineville Oval, Sat Aug 1 12:00pm

WIN 14-4

Late Changes - The Rabbitohs have bounced back from last week's defeat to register their first win of the 2020 campaign. In a low scoring affair, the Rabbitohs showed steel in their defence to hold out the Wentworthville Magpies 14-4 at Erskineville Oval. The main improvement which was very noticeable would have to be the Rabbitohs' ball control. They proved when they held onto the pill, they could generate pressure which would eventually turn into points. The Rabbitohs crossed first through Tahlia Hunter after a repeat set on Wentworthville's try line gave the women from Redfern the perfect attacking opportunity. Arabella McKenzie converted Hunter's try to give South Sydney a 6-0 lead at quarter time. However, from the kick-off Souths let the ball bounce into touch which gifted Wenty an opportunity to respond. A few sets later, the Magpies capitalised but failed to convert the try leaving the Rabbitohs with a narrow two-point lead. After re-entering the arm wrestle the Rabbitohs again built pressure by forcing a line drop-out and scored their second try in the set after, this time through Rabbitohs debutant Zali Dymock. Dymock was crafty all game out of dummy half and her deception was rewarded when she burnt the markers to score out wide. While the conversion attempt was waved away, the Rabbitohs regained a six-point lead. Again it came down to defence and with the Rabbitohs forcing an error out of Wentworthville, they iced the game through Janaya Bent which left the final score at 14-4 to the Rabbitohs.
