Jason Clark doesn’t get to score many tries, but that only makes the occurrence sweeter when they do come according to the Souths Junior.
Clark scored his seventh career try last week against the North Queensland Cowboys in Townsville on Thursday, after taking a short-ball at speed close to the line from dummy-half, Issac Luke before racing in to score.
“Yeah very rare,” laughed Clark referring to the frequency that he scores tries.
“That’s all everyone’s been saying – ‘great try’ – and I just keep saying they’re very rare so I’m soaking it up.
“I think it’s one a year the average is, so I’m happy with that.”
The Rabbitohs will this week take on the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium for the fourth annual Special Olympics Cup.
The Bulldogs come into this week’s match having defeated the Gold Coast Titans by an impressive 36-14 as the side looks to cement their place in the NRL’s top-eight. The Rabbitohs meanwhile got a win of their own in Round 23 by defeating the ladder-leading Cowboys 31-18.
Souths will be without the services of hooker, Luke, as well as five-eighth Luke Keary owing to suspension. But Clark is confident that despite the pairs importance, their replacements will be more than capable of filing their boots and excelling.
“They’re two key players,” admitted Clark.
“Of course in any team if you lose those two key players it’s going to be a big hit, but we’ve got good blokes at this Club who can fill the shoes.”
