Latrell Mitchell was on fire last night in the Rabbitohs 36-28 victory over the Bulldogs at Accor Stadium. The Taree Ferrari scored a try and had a hand in 3 others as he dominated the Bulldogs and got the better of his battle with Blues Origin centre Matt Burton.
Try scoring freak Alex Johnston scored yet another hat trick on the ‘lethal left’ side and prop Junior Tatola continued his sparkling run of form with a barnstorming game that included a try and 21 runs for 231 metres gained.
Halfback Lachlan Ilias opened the scoring with a brilliant individual try and Keaon Koloamatangi set up a Cody Walker four pointer with a lovely one handed offload after he busted a hole through the Dogs left edge defence.
The Bulldogs came to play and the Rabbitohs needed to dig deep and come from behind to record a great 7 tries to 5 win. Souths continue their run to the finals with a huge clash against the Storm next Saturday night at Accor Stadium.
