Junior Reps Results Round 7

After a number of close losses, the South Sydney Rabbitohs SG Ball side have come away with a miraculous victory against the Victoria Thunderbolts on Saturday afternoon. 

The side travelled down to Melbourne having lost their last five matches in a number of close matches, just unable to seal the deal on multiple occasions. 

The Red and Green began proceedings in strong fashion, with Byron Parnell and Peter Mamouzelos crossing in the first six minutes for a 12-nil lead. 

But the home side soon struck back with a double of their own, with both teams striking once again to see the Thunderbolts up 20-16 at half-time. 

A try just after the break saw the deficit extend to ten, but winger Daylen Meredith crashed over with an impressive try to bring the side back within striking distance.

Again, the two sides traded blows as Dean Ieremia scored for the Thunderbolts, while the Rabbitohs Maikeli Manumanunitoga scored with ten to go. 

Captain Peter Mamouzelos was the hero, scoring the decisive try - and his third for the day - in the 65th minute to put his side in front to earn an emphatic and well-deserved 34-30 victory.

Both the Harold Matthews and SG Ball sides will return to the Metricon High Performance Centre at Redfern Oval this Saturday to take on the Newcastle Knights.
