Top Five Victories of the Decade - Broncos

With the South Sydney Rabbitohs travelling up to Suncorp Stadium we take a look at five of the best victories against the Brisbane Broncos over the last ten seasons. 

Round 19 2009 - Rabbitohs 44 def Broncos 12

The Rabbitohs recorded their first victory against the Broncos in Brisbane since 1989 in a comprehensive 44-12 demolition in Round 19, 2009. 

Fan-favourite centre Beau Champion became the first Souths player to score a hat-trick against the Broncos as the Red and Green exploded out of the sheds after half-time, putting on three tries in just ten minutes.

The 32-point win still stands as our biggest winning margin against the Broncos. 

 

Round 16 2011 - Rabbitohs 16 def Broncos 12

One of the most extraordinary matches in Rugby League history occurred when the Rabbitohs took the Broncos to a swamp-like nib Stadium in Perth.

The Red and Green made their intentions clear early on, scoring two tries in the first six minutes - including an incredible four-pointer which saw Rhys Wesser pounce on a miracle kick that landed in a pool in the in-goal.

Although the Broncos managed to score two tries of their own, Souths produced a monster defensive effort and held on as a penalty after the siren sealed a famous 16-12 victory.  

 

Round 8 2014 - Rabbitohs 28 def Broncos 26

This match is remembered for Greg Inglis' 90-metre path of destruction where he brushed off seven defenders to score one of the best-ever individual tries.  

Similarly to the 2011 match, the Rabbitohs got ahead early before the Broncos clawed their way back, and eventually led 16-14 at halftime.

In typical fashion, Souths never gave up and rallied late to take home a nail-biting 28-26 victory. The match also marked the debut of Alex Johnston, who of course, scored a try. 

 

Round 23 2014 - Rabbitohs 42 def Broncos 16

The Red and Green were on fire in this late year Indigenous Round as they put Brisbane to the sword.

Again it was Greg Inglis in the spotlight as he managed to not only score another incredible try - where he caught a chip kick, barrelled over opposite fullback Josh Hoffman, offloaded the ball to Sam Burgess and finished off the set move - but he also finished the match with a hat-trick. 

The dominance continued after a 24-6 lead as the home side posted seven tries for the night, including one on the siren to take out the match 42-16. 

 

Round 1 2015 - Rabbitohs 36 def Broncos 6 

After taking out the Premiership, the Auckland Nines tournament and the World Club Challenge from, plenty were wondering who could take down the South Sydney juggernaut, and the Rabbitohs made sure it wouldn't be the Broncos in their opening match of the new season. 

In one of, if not the most dominant displays against Brisbane, Souths sent a warning shot to the competition with a complete 36-6 drubbing of the home side.

Adam Reynolds wowed commentators and fans alike in the final minute, nailing a penalty goal from 51 metres out to put the icing on the cake.
