Allende eyes up Redfern return

South Sydney Rabbitohs women's team Head Coach Danny Allende is looking forward to getting back out to Redfern next Sunday afternoon as the team look to finish the season strong. 

Following the Red and Green's 14-all draw against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs this afternoon, Allende is excited about returning to Redfern Oval for the first since Round 1 of the Harvey Norman Women's Premiership. 

"We're looking forward to coming back home, we haven't been home for quite some time," said Allende.

 "It should be a big crowd and hopefully, we can put in a better performance than we did today."

With just two matches in the month of June, the Rabbitohs showed some rust against a Bulldogs outfit who were clearly up for the challenge, and Allende had to give credit to Blue and whites.

"I don't want to take anything away from Canterbury they came ready to play they deserve the credit for putting the girls to the sword," said Allende.

"We had a few drop balls and probably didn't look like we wanted to be out there but we somehow found a way to draw so thank god Taleena Simon is on our team."

Hat-trick hero Taleena Simon was the saviour for the Rabbitohs as her incredible solo try with just under ten minutes remaining saved the Rabbitohs from a second straight defeat.

"She is incredible and she did it on both ends of the field today in defence and attack she really wanted to get out there and win," Allende explained.

Another player who impressed the Head Coach was newcomer Moniqua Moale who made her debut. 

"I thought Moniqua went really well she's been playing really well for Mascot and deserved her spot and showed she deserved to be on the field today."

With just a couple of matches left before the finals, the Rabbitohs will look to get back into fifth gear after next week after a tough battle today.
