Rabbitohs 60 v Roosters 8 – Round 20, 2020 Review by Darren Brown

The rivalry between the Sydney Roosters & the South Sydney Rabbitohs rugby league teams is regarded as the fiercest and oldest in Australian sport, and last weeks game was no different.

The Ron Coote Cup was built up to be a one sided affair with all the experts predicting an easy victory to our arch rivals.

However someone forgot to tell that to Wayne and the boy’s from Redfern.

The Rabbitohs went into the game with a huge underdog tag after a disappointing loss to the bottom of the table Bulldogs the week before, unlike the Roosters who were looking to notch up their 6th straight win.

Missing from our line up was enforcer Jaydn Su’A and from the outset the Roosters took full advantage. The Chooks got off to a fast start scoring after 3 minutes and nearly crossing the line a short time later. For the first 10 minutes we were on the back foot and struggled to compete with the 2nd place Roosters.

After weathering the storm and once we gained some quality field position Cody Walker crossed for the first of his 2 tries off a great pass from skipper Adam Reynolds down the right edge to lead 6-4.

Then as they say…the rest is history.

In my opinion it was the best performance by a team this year and arguably the best game by an individual player, that being Cody Walker.

Cody was instrumental in everything we did scoring 2 tries, 3 try assists, 167 run metres, 7 tackle busts, 2 line breaks and 3 line break assists. A 10 out of 10 performance.

Adam Reynolds was over shadowed by his halves partner but also had a superb game playing a leading role. Reyno had a hand in several tries and built pressure with his ever so accurate kicking game.

There were multiple milestones achieved in this battle including 50 career tries to Cody, 100 to Alex Johnston & Reyno securing the top NRL point scorer for 2020. It was beautiful to watch us orchestrate a great win against one of the favourites to win the title.

The 60-4 win was set up by an 84% completion rate which gave our spine the opportunity to play some great football. The attack that was on display was second to none with us scoring some spectacular tries and our prolific try scoring machine AJ achieving yet another milestone scoring 5…yes 5 tries to top the try scoring list with 20.

The most memorable try of the game was when we sent an attacking raid down our left edge, AJ then drew the fullback and put Corey Allan on his way to the try line. Then all of a sudden Corey hears AJ calling for the ball so he can score his 4th try but more importantly join Kyle Feldt at the top of the try scoring list with 19 tries for the season. It’s what this club is all about, unselfishness and team morale. Well done to Corey Allan.

Special mention to Allan who I thought played exceptionally well and had his best game for the club to date. His involvement and ability to be around the ball was exciting to watch.

Our forwards, led by Liam Knight with 181 running metres absolutely dominated the opposition pack with some powerful running and brutal defence. Junior Tatola returned from injury and Cameron Murray moved to the right edge giving Liam the opportunity to start at 13.

Keaon Koloamatangi was once again a standout coming off the bench, he ran for big metres with an impressive post contact stat which set the team up for our attacking raids.

With the finals around the corner, it was important that we got back to winning form and there’s no better team to do that against than the Chooks. They had no answers for us once we clicked into gear.

Our performance was a shot across the bow of every team in the finals series.

Bring on the Knights next week.

1st Elimination Final: Rabbitohs v Knights ANZ Stadium 4pm Sunday 5th October 2020 Preview by Steve Mavin

Since the current 8 team finals system was adopted in 2012 no team from outside the top 4 has won the premiership. In 2017 the 8th placed Cowboys managed to make the grand final only to be rolled by the Storm juggernaut. It’s not impossible to do but being asked to win 4 finals games in a row against all the best teams is extremely difficult to say the least.

It’s never happened but some day surely it will & 2020 could well be the year if the Rabbitohs keep producing the scintillating form they conjured up in their final round dismantling of the Chooks.

This dreaded Corona virus has changed the world as we know it so a history making run by the Rabbitohs would be a shining light in a year filled with darkness.

The Rabbitohs host the Knights in a sudden death battle at ANZ this Sunday & it’s a game they are expected to win after flogging the back to back premiers in the final round of the season.

Throw in the fact that the Knights were smashed 36-6 by the resurgent Titans & it’s hard to make a case for anything other than the Bunnies cruising into the second week of the finals.

Finals footy does however not always follow the script, this is a new week, a new game & the team can’t afford to be complacent in the slightest. Master coach Wayne Bennett will ensure this won’t happen.

The Bunnies are well aware of what the Knights can do after they were beaten by Kaylin Pongas men in round 10 at Bankwest Stadium. The Novacastrians shot out to a 20 nil lead that could’ve been even higher if Ponga had converted more than one goal. The Bunnies failed to score a point until the 65th minute of the game on their way to a 20-18 defeat.

Since then both teams have had their ups & downs with only a single point separating them at the end of regular season, the Rabbitohs on 24 & the Knights 23.

Souths come into this clash riding a tidal wave of confidence with star performers throughout their lineup. The Knights limp into the game picking up the pieces of a season that promised so much but has begun to crumble when it matters most.

The Knights let the Titans score 7 tries against them last week & now face a Rabbitohs team that scored 10 tries when they embarrassed the Chooks.

Campbell Graham didn’t play in the round 10 loss to the Knights & his 10 tries in the last 7 games makes him the form centre of the competition.

Jaydn Su’A (who we spoke to on the podcast this week) has emerged as an enforcer & played a pivotal role in a Souths pack that has silenced many of its early season critics. Bayley Sironens elevation to a starting back rower on the left edge has seen him perform at a consistently high level on a weekly basis.

Keaon Koloamatangi forced his way onto a solid bench & has now become an integral member of the team with his powerful running & hungry work rate.

Cody Walker is in superb form & is almost unstoppable at the moment. Adam Reynolds is also back showing the form with the ball & boot that took us all the way in 2014.

Corey Allan has been brilliant at the back & is starting to realise the talent that he promised as a dazzling young star player.

We’re also lucky enough to have 2 of the best players in the NRL, our Origin heroes Damien Cook & Cameron Murray. Both of these blokes have the ability to turn the game in our favour, Cooky with his blinding speed out of dummy half & Cam with his equally impressive ability to play the ball quickly & give his team the jump on retreating defences.

We have plenty of big guns ready to fire on a Knights team playing away from home but aside from all of that perhaps the most important thing the Rabbits need to remember is that defence wins big games & any team containing a young superstar by the name of K. Ponga is a dangerous proposition.

The Bunnies just need to get the simple things right like defence, holding the ball & completing sets. If this occurs then the entertaining rugby league that we all love to see will charge through the opposition like a 309 bus hurtling down Botany Road.

I tip the Rabbitohs to make another statement with a convincing victory & roll on into a big finals run.

The Knights should start preparing for yet another Mitchell Pearce led Mad Monday celebration & if any of the Knights players happen to be reading this then don’t worry boys there’s always next year.

PART 2: I set a goal, it was to play rugby league. I did it. I did what I told myself I would do. Is it weird that I’m proud of myself? 😂 Souths Sydney Rabbitoh number 60, 2 games, 1 broken nose. Some beautiful new friends and tons of memories – high and low! The debut was highest of highs and not being selected was the lowest of lows. (I mean let’s be real, who would enjoy being dropped) Joy, nerves, excitement, adrenaline, laughs, anxiety, rejection, devastation. These were my emotions during the last 9 months. Sucks the competition was so short, was just vibing! But appreciative we had a season at all 🙏 It really was a rollercoaster ride, but one I’d jump on again and again and again! When people asked me why did I want to play, well I wanted to play because 1. I love playing sport, 2. I cover rugby league everyday and the more I watched it, the more addictive it became and there was this niggle for me to give it a go. 3. I’ve always loved testing my body’s ability and that pressure of putting my body on the line to win for the team! 4. I weirdly like training and sweating 🤷‍♀️ I’ll never forget the day I told Dean Widders I wanted to have a crack and @deanw25 your encouraging response gave me belief that I could do it. So many of you have been so supportive of me having a dig and thank you so much for that! The positive vibes were exactly what I needed 😁 And if you’re one of my haters reading this – THANK YOU! I used your negative energy and pretended it was you I was running at out there 😂 (I ate shit a couple times, but I still feel like a winner). I hope this inspires someone to have a crack at something new. Well thanks for reading my essay, have a great Sunday and I’ll get back to my real job which is reporting and I’ll try keep my face neat and my voice box in check for a while longer until I decide what I wanna try next 😏 over & out. #womeninsport #rugbyleague

Ryan McGhee

Ryan McGhee from Tennessee USA found rugby league when there was no sport on TV due to the Covid-19 shutdown. He discovered the Rabbitohs & has adopted us as his club.

Ryan says he’s fallen in love with the game because of the pace of play and the unique aspect the kicking game brings to it. He said he watches live NRL on Fox Sports 1 & it suits him because he has a 1 year old who gets up at 6am when the games are on. Ryan said that he’s loves the Rabbitohs Radio podcast teams passion for the sport and the Rabbitohs.

Ryan hosts a Curling podcast called Rocks Across the Pond & he’s a huge Virginia Tech Hokies fans & tailgater. His crew has about 10RVs that all park close to each other & have a big party at games.

So Ryan is a now a Bunnies man but he will fit right in with us & here’s why.

The tailgate fans are mad supporters much like the Burrow. They get together, bbq, drink & cheer their team.

Curling is like lawn bowls on ice & Ryan says “Curling is a Scottish game deeply rooted in sportsmanship that starts with a handshake and ends with the winning team buying the first round.” What’s not to like about that?

Ryan is a sports nut just like us, welcome aboard mate, up the Mighty Rabbitohs!
