While Rabbitohs prop-forward Dave Tyrrell was pleased with last Saturday’s win over the Newcastle Knights, all focus has shifted to this Sunday’s match against the Penrith Panthers and the need to improve further at ANZ Stadium in Round 21.
The Rabbitohs took down the Knights by 52-6 in what was a solid outing by the men in red and green, but it was by no means a perfect performance as Tyrrell explained to the Rugby League media.
“It’s good to get some points on the board, but we’re completely focussed about next week,” said Tyrrell.
“It wasn’t perfect – there was a few balls that went to ground, a couple of things we can always improve on, so we’re really looking to push forward and keep improving.
“We take nothing for granted and we have to work hard every week. Nothing comes easy in the NRL, so despite the belief (we in ourselves) we know we have to work hard. Nothing else matters until next week, so that’s all we’re focussed on.”
Tyrrell – who has played all 18 games in the Rabbitohs season – played a big role for Souths against the Knights last week in terms of go-forward, with the prop making 105 metres with the ball in hand in just 27 minutes on the field.
