Rabbitohs Captain John Sutton described last night’s (Monday’s) victory over the Dragons as scrappy ahead of this Saturday night’s match against the Warriors in Perth.

“It was a bit of a scrappy game there,” said Sutton.

“But we were happy to get the two points and looking forward to playing the Warriors next week.”

“We played pretty well in the first half and didn’t complete too many sets in the second half which was a bit disappointing – so we’re definitely looking at putting in an 80 minute performance against the Warriors next week.”

The match saw the long-awaited return of Issac Luke from injury after the Kiwi hooker injured his shoulder in round three against the Tigers. Sutton welcomed Luke’s return, citing that the powerful hooker will only get better with game-time.

“Issac’s a quality player,” admitted Sutton.

“He played really well last night – he’s one of the most damaging hookers going around so the more game-time he gets, he’s only going to get better.

The Rabbitohs will fly out to Perth later in the week in preparation for the side’s round 13 clash with New Zealand Warriors at nib Stadium in Perth – the Rabbitohs’ Western Australian home.

“Last year we played the Warriors over there and it was a really good game,” said Sutton.

“We got the win so I can’t wait to go over there and have a good game.”
