Adam Reynolds Try Saver on Chris Sandow (2012)
Top Moments - Reynolds chases down Sandow
By round 15 of the 2012 season, the South Sydney Rabbitohs had made their way up the NRL ladder off the back of a new coach and a new look side.
The biggest talking point that week - the battle between Parramatta Eels halfback, and former Rabbitoh Chris Sandow, up against Souths rookie Adam Reynolds.
Being the new kid on the scene who looked up to Sandow when coming through the grades, Reynolds had everything to prove in this game.
While South Sydney held a 12-point lead with just over 10 remaining, a converted-try to the Eels had the potential to shift the momentum in their favour. But not on Adam’s watch.
After the intercept was made by Sandow on the far side of the field, Reynolds had no right to even be in the picture let alone come up with the game-defining play.
A grin from Sandow as he slowed 10 metres out - He thought he had the legs to go all the way, but its those plays that win you games. They call them the one per-centers. It’s fair to say Adam Reynolds was captain-material from the start.
Greg Inglis Try Saver on Akuila Uate (2012)
Top Moments - Greg Inglis Try Saver on Akuila Uate
We all first think of Greg Inglis as one of the most naturally-gifted carriers of a football.
It’s like a work of art watching him glide across field, straighten, then release a surge of explosion through his right palm, to imprint on opposition chests.
But what made Greg one of the best of all time was his ability to shut a play down through his defence and football smarts. A strong frame, with agility and power - not many got through G.I.
This play was no different.
Round 26, 2012 - The last regular round of the season. South Sydney had already confirmed their top four finals birth so for most Fullbacks they could almost be forgiven for clocking off on the job, especially with a six-point lead. Enters: Greg Inglis.
Inglis’ contact to firstly hold Uate up, then strip the ball to flick back to Nathan Merritt is not only a physically-emposing play, but only the smart ones think to do that.
Akuila Uate was the third leading try scorer in 2012 so he knew how to finish a try. Built low to the ground with strong hips - he was almost unstoppable anywhere within that 10-metre range.
