Rabbitohs NYC (under 20s) Coach, David Penna, reviews his side’s performance following the first trial of the new-year.
A vastly extended Rabbitohs side was on hand at the Simply Energy High Performance Centre, Redfern Oval, on Friday night to take on an equally extensive Sydney Roosters line-up as the sides look to finalise the make-up of the respective squads.
It would be the Roosters who would come away with the win scoring four tries to two, but it was all about getting the team’s structures right according to Penna.
“We had a good hit-out against the Roosters,” said the mentor.
“We played three 25 minute thirds – we started well and the boys put in a big effort. It’s been a long 12 weeks (of) pre-season, so I think they were just pleased to get out there and start playing some footy.”
