Dubbo Disaster II

By Steve Mavin

The Rabbitohs were off their game today and never really got going against a Raiders team that came to Apex Oval, Dubbo to play footy.

JJ represents Rabbitohs TV at Apex Oval, Dubbo today.

The 32-12 loss to the ‘Green Machine’ is the 2nd disastrous result in 2 years after the Panthers absolutely smashed Souths last year at the same NSW country venue.

Souths lost Junior Tatola in the first tackle of the game to a head knock and he was a huge loss after being one of the teams best last week against the Warriors.

There were however no excuses for a lacklustre performance peppered with drop balls, penalties and poor defence for the majority of the game.

Our injured captain Cameron Murray may not be far away from a return, Latrell Mitchell is still getting treatment in the US but hopefully back soon and Mark Nicholls is due back next week as well.

Dubbo Boost are Souths fans.

Some talented depth returning to the ranks may be the answer to lift the sides on field play to an acceptable level.

In one of the only bright spots on a dark day, Souths winger Alex Johnston moved to 2nd all time on the Rabbitohs try scoring list equalling Benny Wearings total of 144.

AJ sits just 2 behind Nathan Merritts 146 so 3 more tries will see him break the record.

Next week Souths take on the Wests Tigers on Saturday 5.30pm at Accor Stadium and the Rabbitohs TV team will present the post match function in the P&O Members deck.
