LOSS 16-26

A dramatic opening match at the new Allianz Stadium in front of 41,906 may have proved costly for both teams, as the Sydney Roosters won 26-16 at the new stadium. The match started in dramatic fashion when Cameron Murray came reeling out of just the second tackle of the game after collecting the hip of Roosters winger Kevin Naiqama and was taken from the field. This caused a immediate reschuffle with young Peter Mamouzelos coming on at hooker and Havili going back to lock. Roosters second-rower Angus Crichton created history when he scored the first NRL try at the new Allianz Stadium in the sixth minute after charging onto a short ball from Luke Keary. South Sydney then almost hitback when Keaon Koloamatangi hitback only to be denied by the video referee. Crichton then turned provider for the next try when he again split the defence and drew Latrell Mitchell before sending Roosters captain James Tedesco over to score in the 20th minute. However, the Rabbitohs hit back just minutes later after Tedesco put down a bomb and Mitchell took advantage to lay on a stunning try for interchange hooker Peter Mamouzelos, A piece of individual brilliance by Roosters halfback Sam Walker, who grubered behind the Rabbitohs defence and won the race for the ball to score in the 32nd minute, ensured the home side a 20-6 halftime lead. Second-rower Egan Butcher then put the Roosters further ahead just three minutes into the second half when he squeezed between Lachlan Ilias and Keaon Koloamatagi to score off a Keary pass. However, Rabbitohs winger Taane Milne gave the club's supporters hope when he tip-toed down the touchline to score in the 50th minute. Souths lost Mitchell to the sinbin for a professional foul, after two try saving tackles. But the Rabbitohs scored while a man down after Cody Walker swooped on a dropped ball by Tedesco and raced away before Milne scored on the next tackle. The Rabbitohs finished the match the stronger of the teams. The Rabbitohs never recovered after losing captain Cameron Murray to a head knock in just the second tackle of the match and hooker Siliva Havili was also ruled out due to HIA protocols. The Roosters also suffered significant casualties, with Joey Manu (calf), Jared Waerea-Hargreaves (hamstring) and Sam Verrills (arm) all failing to finish the match. But with that final try they were able to retain the Ron Coote Cup for their 5th consecuative season. The Roosters and Rabbitohs will meet again next weekend at Allianz Stadium and both teams could have players racing the clock to be fit for the sudden-death finals clash.
