Backup squad does the job
No state of origin stars, injuries mounting, Souths went into this game without 7 regular first graders. But after a sluggish start, our second string team lead by Latrell Mitchell put on 5 unanswered tries to take control of the game. This was another important two points as we continue to get our season back on track and have a fight to stay in the Top 8. Still 4 more wins to make the finals.
Kennar hatrick on return
Richie Kennar made a long awaited return to first grade with Rabbitohs and he do with a bang. He ran in 3 tries filling in on Alex Johnston's wing to remind everyone he is still here if needed.
Mitchell & Mitchell show
Well big Shaq Mitchell was once again called up into first grade but it was a extra special moment as he join his brother Latrell for first time in a NRL game, and in his first game together since their junior playing days. Both put in big games which was a delight to see.
Rahme stepping up
Jaxson Rahme has been called up into the U21s team from our SG Ball squad and is looking to make every post a winner. He is a hard running ball playing forward. I look forward to seeing him progress.
U23s Layer needed
With the gap narrowing between reserve grade or NSW Cup and NRL, since the end of NYC U20s grade. What we have seen the gap between reserve grade and U21s has widdened, with it being more difficult for players to setup. We see many get injured too often. What we are going to need is a layer between U21s and reserve grade. This is where a U23 layer will be the best solution going forward allowing players to develop, especially forwards.
