Stats Breakdown - Eels

The South Sydney Rabbitohs bounced back into the winner's circle last weekend and nailed a few key stats along the way, which saw them return to second place on the ladder.


Sutton puts in the hard yards

Club legend John Sutton was at his damaging best on Saturday running for 149 metres and posting 55 post contact metres, which was the best of any player on the field. 

While he may not have been as flamboyant with the ball his work ethic was second to none as he carried the Rabbitohs out of danger with vigour and determination, whilst also laying the platform for his side to build their attack. 


Right edge stands up

Throughout the season it has been the mighty Red and Green's left edge that has been the goods for the Rabbitohs but on Saturday it was the right side of the attack that helped them get over the line. 

As the Rabbitohs were staring down the barrel of an unlikely defeat, centre Dane Gagai and winger Campbell Graham stepped up to help secure the two points for their side 


The Cookie Monster

Once again, Damien Cook was at his scintillating best as he played a massive part in helping the Rabbitohs overcome a determined Eels. 

Cook set up the first try for Dane Gagai, whilst also making a game-topping 49 tackles!

He also ran for 128 metres, had two line-break assists as well as four tackle breaks. 


All out attack

While the win wasn't clean for Souths, the attacking stats say otherwise. 

In almost every attacking stat the Rabbitohs were ahead; run metres (1,436), line breaks (7), tackle breaks (42) and average set distance (38.8m).

Topping these stats went a long way in deciding the outcome of the game.
