After a positive performance last week against the Sea Eagles, Rabbitohs five-eighth Luke Keary says he is still building confidence ahead of this Thursday night’s Close the Gap Round clash against the Brisbane Broncos at ANZ Stadium.
The return of Keary from a pectoral tear coincided with the injury of Captain John Sutton – an injury that has allowed Keary to come into Michael Maguire’s starting team alongside halfback, Adam Reynolds.
But despite forging an ever-evolving partnership with Reynolds and being among the Rabbitohs busiest players on Friday night, with 30 tackles to his name, Keary admits that he is still finding his feet, and that he looks forward to the return of Captain, John Sutton.

“I’m only five games back,” said Keary.
“I’m just trying to find my feet at the moment and get a bit of confidence and take it week by week.
“Hopefully we get Sutto (John Sutton) back in the next couple of weeks, so I’m just filling that void there while he’s gone and we’ll see what happens when he comes back.”
For Keary, South Sydney’s 23-4 victory over the ladder-leading Sea Eagles last Friday night was particularly special given the weight of history at the ground.
“It was a special night for me personally,” said the play-maker.
“I got to go out and play at the SCG which I hadn’t gotten to do. There’s a lot of history with that ground so it was a special time.”
