“It was a good day and this event could turn into a monster tournament.“ Jamie Hamilton – Bunny Bounty Poker Champion

By Steve Mavin

A big field of over 90 players assembled yesterday at The Juniors Kingsford for the 1st annual Bunny Bounty Poker Tournament.

Eventual winner Jamie Hamilton arrived early yesterday.

Reggie Rabbit made an appearance and 9 bounties were on offer. At table 2 where I was playing there was plenty of action with a bounty eliminated in the very first hand of the day.

Watch on Rabbitohs Fan TV.

There was $200 on offer for my scalp and it too went early after I called an all in from my mate Jamie Hamilton with a hand that in hindsight I should have folded.

Jamie Hamilton (centre) was selected at random to be a Bunny Bounty.

Natan from Kings Poker told me that the large number of people that played in the event was the biggest Saturday total they have seen in some time.

Ironically it was Jamie ‘Hamo’ Hamilton who would go on to win the tournament, thanks in some part to the addition of all my chips early in the day.

Lots of action at table 2.

Team List Tuesday – Rabbitohs v Titans

The Bunnies had the bye last week while the Titans were defeated at home 32-6 by the Cowboys. In that game the Titans scored the opening try of the game only to allow 6 unanswered tries to the resurgent North Queenslanders who now sit 3rd on the ladder.

Flegg Finds Form – Cup Conquer Magpies – Pathways Wrap

The Rabbitohs Jersey Flegg team bounced back in style yesterday at Ironmark High Performance Centre, Redfern beating the Wests Tigers 24-20.

In my preview of Saturdays pathways triple header I called the Flegg teams season ‘dismal’ but I am now rethinking that description after our boys came out firing and got a much needed win against a team well above them on the ladder.

Team captain Thomas Giles opened the scoring in the first minute of the game then a double to super talented lock Tallis Duncan and another try to skilful back rower Louis Grossemy made it 4 tries for the home team.

Tyrone Munro © Rabbitohs TV

The visitors answered with 4 tries of their own but 4 goals from 4 attempts by star winger Tyrone Munro was the winning difference in the score line.

This Jersey Flegg victory was the first time that close mates Thomas Giles and Lachlan ‘Choc’ Gale have started at front row together this season. The former Australian Schoolboys representatives and Marcellin College students took on a Dragons pack rated the best in the competition and dominated them in the middle. Love your work Tommy & Choc.

Lachlan Gale and Thomas Giles.

Next Saturday 11th June at 11.15am our Flegg team face a tough test when they travel down to Collegians Sporting Complex, Wollongong to take on a top 4 Dragons team.

Our Knock On Effect NSW Cup team were too good for the Magpies, winning a high scoring game 36-32.

Powerhouse Souths winger Izaac Thompson crossed for 2 tries in the first 10 minutes to get his team away to a flying start. The tide then turned with the Magpies scoring 3 tries of their own before a Josh Mansour try made it 3 tries a piece at the half time break.

In the 2nd half another try to Mansour aka ‘The Sauce’ and four pointers to Ben Lovett and Shaquai Mitchell combined with some superb goal kicking by Isaiah Tass was enough to get the chocolates (Darrell Lea of course!).

My co-hosts Darren Brown and Grant Chappell watched most of the action online via the NSWRL live stream on Facebook and they reported that Shaquai Mitchell and Davvy Moale led from up front, Ben Lovett ran some good lines in attack, Isaiah Tass took plenty of strong carries. Pete Mamouzelos and Dean Hawkins had some classy touches too.

Chaps also told me “I’m up at Coffs Harbour watching my daughter play in the Oztag State Cup for the Rabbitohs u9s. Buddy Gordons daughter plays in the same team and he told me that he drove up here to Coffs on Friday to watch his girls first game then flew back on Saturday morning to play at Redfern for the NSW Cup team off the bench then caught the bus back up to Coffs to see his daughter play on Sunday morning.

That’s a 1086km round trip, well done Buddy you’re a great dad.

Next Saturday at 1pm our NSW Cup team will follow the Flegg game in Wollongong and take on a Dragons team that sit below them on the ladder.

Our Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership team went down 16-8 to the Central Coast Roosters and are still seeking that elusive first win of the season.

The Rabbitohs 2022 Womens team.

WNRL prop Ellie Johnston and Therese Aiton off the bench both scored for the Bunnies but 3 tries and 2 goals from the visitors was enough to sink our hopes of securing the 2pts.

Next weeks game gives our womens team a 9 day turn around and hopes of victory will be high when they take on the winless Wenty Magpies at the NSWRL Centre of Excellence at 7pm on Monday 13th June.

Saturday was the last home game at Redfern for any of our pathways teams in 2022.

Depicted on the jersey is the birthing tree which symbolizes our matriarchs and acknowledges that everything comes from Mother Earth.

• Whale – Blake Taaffe (Bidjigal)

Rabbitohs 2022 Indigenous Jersey.

The red colour on the jersey represents the blood in our veins and red earth we live on and the green represents the natural beauties of our land. The red and green also represents the Rabbitohs and their connection to people right across our countries. The river represents our song lines and individual journeys as Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander people. The circles represent our people coming together as one. Many Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Islander clan groups come together to yarn and share in support of the Rabbitohs. In addition, the Aboriginal and the Torres Strait Islander flags highlight the sleeves of the jersey.

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.

Team List Tuesday – Rabbitohs v Warriors – Magic Round

Cameron Murray out, Cody captain. Jacob Host, Thomas Burgess and Kodi Nikorima in!

It’s magic round (round 10) with all 8 games set to be played at Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane.

The Rabbitohs meet the Warriors at 3pm on Saturday, the 3rd game of the 8 and it’s just as well because rain is forecast for the whole week in Brisbane so the Suncorp surface for the last few games could end up looking like the old Waterloo Oval on a soggy Sunday arvo.

Watch on Rabbitohs TV.

The Rabbitohs were ordinary last week against the Broncos but the Warriors were even worse than that against an under manned Sharks team so the outcome of this clash will depend on which club can sort out their problems and find some form.

The Bunnies and Warriors have both won four games and lost five, Souths are however ahead on the table with +19 opposed to the Kiwi sides -81 thanks largely to having 70pts put on them by the Storm in round 7.

For Souths to win they will need to hold the ball, complete sets and cut down their appalling error rate. Throw in a good kicking game and a ferocious defensive effort and the Bunnies will be back in business.

Alex Johnston the star of our lethal left was out there catching a cold last week, the man on the verge of becoming the clubs greatest try scorer was starved of possession with a miserly 8 runs for 55 metres gained. This can’t happen again, ever.

Victory on Saturday depends on our forwards winning the battle in the middle and the spine performing to the high standards we’ve come to expect. If this happens our left and right sides will find the type of joy that our fans crave.

Rabbitohs v Warriors game 3 of 8.
