The South Sydney Rabbitohs have gone down to the North Queensland Cowboys in Townsville tonight (Saturday) by 20-18.
Despite keeping the Cowboys scoreless in the second half, a horror start for the Rabbitohs proved too much to overcome after finding themselves down 14-0 inside the first ten minutes of play.
The Cowboys put their best foot forward right from the kick-off, with the hang-time allowing them to force the Rabbitohs deep into their own half. From the next set, Mathew Wright opened the scoring after a Johnathan Thurston bomb was tapped back by Curtis Rona for the centre to score. Thurston added the extras from out wide to make it six-nil after just three minutes.
