Rabbitohs forward, Tim Grant, believes his side’s Good Friday victory over the Bulldogs will build belief at Redfern after overcoming tremendous odds to grab the two points.
With two players failing to return thanks to concussion, plus other injuries, the Rabbitohs held on right through the 80 minutes to claim victory.
“It wasn’t a glamorous win for us,” admitted Grant.
“But it was definitely a hard-fought win and something we’ll take forward into coming games and it builds a bit of belief within.”
Among the casualties was Adam Reynolds, who will have scans today (Saturday) to determine the full extent of his leg injury, after Canterbury skipper James Graham collected the halfback’s leg during a shot at field goal.
Graham was placed on report while the Rabbitohs went on to win the match courtesy of a Bryson Goodwin penalty goal from right in front.
Grant admitted that the loss of Reynolds is a blow to the side, but that his (as yet) unnamed replacement will, true to Rabbitohs form, get on with the task at hand.
“It is (a big loss),” said Grant.
“’Renno’ is a key player in this team, but I’m sure whoever steps in will do the job – we’ve got a game-plan here at Souths where everyone just does their job and we’ll be right.”
