2022 - The Cyber View from the Hill

25th May 2022

Forwards dominated

Souths forwards were dominated by the bigger Raiders pack as we let in 5 unanswered tries in scenes reminicant of last years game in Dubbo. Without Murry and Tatola after the first minute with the team still feeling the effects of the flu outbreak in the club, was plain to see. But we the way results landed we stayed in the Top 8 for another week. We return home for the indigenous round.

Johnston Equals Wearing

Alex Johnston continues to be a shining light in 2022. He scored another try making 6 tries from the last 6 games and 8 for the season. He has now equaled the great Benny Wearing record as the second greatest South Sydney premiership try scorer. Only two more to catch Nathan Merritt.

Thompson scores a double

Izaac Thompson again was in fine form. This week he scored 2 tries making it 6 tries from 2 games and 10 for the season. He could have easily had another 4. He has been rewarded for his try scoring efforts and been named on the extended bench this week.

Kaho another double

In a day for left wingers Kaho produced another double in U21s taking his tally to 6 tries from 7 games. His speed continues to be a key factor on the end of the backline.

Rabbitoh Prime Minister & Governer General

Congratulations to Anthony Albanese life member and former Group 14 and Rabbitohs board member in becoming the 31st Australian primie minister. Russell may have to move over now as Anthony becomes our #1 ticket holder. Then to top things off he went to Government House to be swarn in by David Hurley who in 2015 raised the Rabbitoh flag over Government House. Time to raise the Rabbitoh flag over Kiribili House on game days.
