2022 - The Cyber View from the Hill

6th Jul 2022

Mud Larks

The 2022 Rabbitoh's team really like playing in the heavy conditions. This was our 5th win in a row against Parramatta as we send a message that we now mean business. Our forwards put in a strong display against the big Parramatta pack with Tass looking like he may solve our left centre issue. Still a long way to go but that win put us back on track. Still 5 more wins to make the finals.

Arrow strong performance

Backing up from a SOO loss Jai Arrow he made amends by taking on the Parramatta pack, and scored a try off a great pass from Tass. Looking forward to more of this as we head into the finals.

Sele and Knight knee injuries

Two big injuries have instantly transformed our forward pack. Sele and Knight both went down with knee injuries, with Knight out for the season. We will need to find a replacement quickly.

Griffiths off the bench

Trent Griffiths is a unsung worker in our Flegg team. In a game where we were getting dominated he put in a big effort off the bench.

Girls bow out with a draw

Its been a tough season for the W-NSWRL team. With the ongoing uncertainity of our NRLW has made it difficult to attract players. But the final 3 weeks our girls finally started to find form. THe top try scorer was second rower Ellie Johnston with 3 tries. While our Top Points scorer was Akira Kelly with 16 points.

Sydney's big wet

This weekend saw one of the wetest games recorded for some time. The reserve grade match was played on a water soaked pitch with puddles everywhere. While 2020 and 2021 were covid years, 2022 has become the year of the EL Nina as the NRL tries to weave its way trhough one of the wetest periods in Sydney's history.
