Team list

Top 10 tries of the year

With over 100 tries scored this season for the South Sydney Rabbitohs, this list was no easy task but here are the definitive top 10 tries of the year.


10. Look out, here comes big John Sutton - Sutton v Warriors

Featuring in the top five earlier this year, John Sutton's magic against the New Zealand Warriors still remains as one of the best this season.

Sutto rolled back the clock plenty of times this season, but his majestic effort across the ditch stood out amongst the rest.


9. Burns has got one - Braidon Burns v Bulldogs

One of the forgotten tries of the year but as fantastic effort nonetheless.

Overshadowed by the last gasp try against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs on Good Friday, Rabbitohs' youngster Braidon Burns produced a magnificent four-pointer that brought the Red and Green back into the match.

The versatile outside back wasn't expecting his moment in the sun, but took the opportunity with both hands after he was thrust into the side unexpectedly when Robert Jennings left the field with concussion early into the contest.

Burns put in a strong shift out on the wing in trying circumstances, and produced one of the tries of the season in the process.


8. George's slam dunk - George Burgess v Warriors

What a great season George Burgess had!

The big Englishman has been applauded by pundits in 2018, who have commended his powerful ball running and defensive energy.

His 'Slam Dunk' effort against the Warriors epitomised his efforts for the season, as he carried three players to the line before slamming the ball down.


7. He leaves them standing - Robert Jennings v Cowboys

Down by four points and playing in the miserable wet, what do you do?

You give the ball to your top try scorer of course!

With the Rabbitohs staring down the barrel of defeat against the North Queensland Cowboys late in the match, Robert Jennings received the ball close the touchline, with his opposite winger Kyle Feldt in front of him.

Without thinking twice, Jennings took on Feldt head on and absolutely blitz past him, touching down for a crucial try.


6. Thommy backs up - Thomas Burgess v Sharks

This try was vintage Rabbitohs in 2018.

A sweeping backline play down the left-hand side saw halfback Adam Reynolds take on the line before shifting it to his partner in crime Cody Walker.

Walker then popped the ball back on the inside to John Sutton, who ran straight to the line where he weighed up his options before offloading the ball to Thomas Burgess, who barged over the line after making the initial hit up.


5. Rugby League's Rolls Royce - Inglis v Raiders

What a sight to see, Greg Inglis in full flight with nothing in front of him.

The try - which somewhat marked the return of our barnstorming captain - captivated the sell-out crowd at Central Coast Stadium against the Canberra Raiders in round 7.

Picking off an Aiden Sezer pass, Inglis strode 70 metres to score a memorable four-pointer.


4. Run Rabbit Run - Walker v Panthers

Is there anything more thrilling than a chase?

Back in Round 2, the Rabbitohs caught the Panthers napping with an exhilarating try, which saw the Cardinal and Myrtle's outside backs combine to go from one end to the other.

Winger Richie Kennar started the play, as he broke through a jagged Penrith kick chase, where he then offloaded to a runaway Robert Jennings, who turned the Panthers chasers inside and out before passing the ball on to Walker, who did the rest by planting the ball down underneath the posts.


3. Never say die - Murray - Bulldogs

Coming in at number three is the last-minute Good Friday winner scored by young gun Cameron Murray.

Surely at the top of some Members and supporters lists, the Rabbitohs produced some of the best never say die footy to secure a famous win against the Bulldogs.


2. What a take - Graham v Sharks

Arguably the most spectacular take of the year across the whole NRL, Campbell Graham's leaping effort against the Sharks in Round 13 is a must-watch.

Running on to a pinpoint cross-field kick by Adam Reynolds, Graham leapt above the Sharks outside men to take a marvellous specky and score a freakish try.


1. Cooking up a storm - Cook v Storm

Here it is Members and supporters - our number one try of the year.

Adding to his already impressive 2018 trophy cabinet, hooker Damien Cook gets the nod for the best Rabbitohs try of the year.

A 45-metre dash to the line against the Melbourne Storm saw Cook brush off the likes of Billy Slater and Josh Addo-Carr with ease.

To make the individual effort even more spectacular, the former beach sprinter had only just recovered from a scary knock, where over 400kgs of human weight fell on his ankle in an uncomfortable looking tackle.
