Rabbitohs halfback, Adam Reynolds, says that hard work and dedication were the keys to the Club reaching its third consecutive Preliminary Final match.
The playmaker praised the enthusiasm of the Club’s young brigade for stepping up to the plate in 2014 and driving the Club’s culture, after a total of six players made their first grade debuts since round one.
“A lot of hard work and passion has been put into this year,” said Reynolds.
“All the young boys have really stepped up and driven this Club’s culture to new levels.
“It’s paid off – all the hard work and dedication that the boys have put in over the year.
“We’ve worked really hard to get to this point, but in saying that we still haven’t done anything yet. All of our focus now is on the next two weeks and getting our bodies right and preparing the best we can for our next game.”
After defeating the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in week one of the Telstra Premiership Finals Series, Reynolds’ side now awaits the outcome of tomorrow night’s clash between the Sydney Roosters and the North Queensland Cowboys at Allianz Stadium – the victor winning the right to face the Rabbitohs on September 26 at ANZ Stadium.
For Reynolds, his side’s last performance in week one of the finals bore promising signs, but also plenty to work on after the Sea Eagles fought back to score 24 points in the final quarter of the match.
