How good is this? The Tigers hurled everything at us, yet we were too strong. I have said it before, that being the Premiers, each and every team will rise to the occasion against us but we kept our cool and managed to grab another win.
Many a Tigers fan said ‘we were all over you in the first half…’ Taupau proved dangerous with his big hits and battles and Farah led by experience by bagging a try early on. But we went on with it and came away with the two points.
This season so far is proving that we have a tough squad. To have seen Sutton play the majority of the Roosters game with a broken jaw - and with no complaints no less – was pretty courageous, and then to see Dylan Walker play the majority of the Tigers game with a broken hand and score two tries was spectacular. We have come a long way, and it is inspiring to see our men want to stay on-field. Every player seems to willingly go well above and beyond for our beloved Rabbitohs.
Speaking of Dylan Walker, how good is he? He is slippery and can open up defences with his quality evasive running. His combinations with Reynolds and Inglis are also growing. He is fast, and because of that, he keeps his opposition in two minds on a regular basis. He will be missed over the next few weeks and I will miss the entertainment he provides.
I’m looking forward to seeing some good match-ups at Parramatta Stadium this Friday night: Sandow v Reynolds, Stewart v Watmough and Issac Luke v Peats. This is going to be one tough encounter.
I am on cloud nine as a Rabbitohs Member – loving every minute. Loving seeing our boys run out each week and putting their best foot forward. So I hope we can bring the two points back down Parramatta Road.
It took a long time to climb to get to where we are as a team, so let’s keep the motor running Members and supporters! Up the Mighty Rabbitohs!
