Classic Match: 1986, Second Half

When the fisticuffs were finally halted, Fenech stood there under the lights, his rippling torso steaming, his face wracked with the emotion he always displayed when leading his Rabbitoh warriors. It was on this night that Phil Gould, in his only season at Souths, kept his cool in the midst of growing chaos and masterminded a superb 17-8 win which had the Rabbitoh faithful truly believing that a premiership was possible. But once again the Bulldogs proved our nemesis, completely outclassing us 16-2 in the major preliminary semi-final.
