It's been a brilliant first half... This is why.
Starting Fast… Again
Over the last two weeks the Rabbitohs have outscored their opponents 60-0 in the first half. That’s probably enough said on this one…

I Want to Break Free!
Well it looks like the boys have spiders on them tonight because the Parramatta are struggling to contain them. So far the Eels have missed 23 compared Souths 7. And guess who’s leading our tackle breaks? None other than Latrell with five… Five that could probably count from that inspiring kick return. Our star fullback is brimming with confidence.
Halves Link Up
Cody Walker crossed the stripe after thirty minutes, which isn’t a particularly remarkable point on it’s own, but the fact that he ran thirty meters after making a line break on the right hand side of the field off a pass from fellow half Adam Reynolds males it all the more interesting. The two Rabbitohs halves often connect on the left hand side of the field to set up their outside men, but Cody Walker making himself a running threat on both sides of the field over the last two weeks is contributing to the dynamic offence that we have enjoyed thus far.

Kick into the Corners
Gutherson loves to run and too does Sivo and Ferguson, but the Rabbitohs have so far been able to limit their involvement primarily through an effective kicking game from captain Reynolds. Throw in some solid first up contact along with some superior slide defence and it’s no surprise to see a scoreline 22-0 in our favour.
Rookies Flying High
Don’t you just live it when the young boys step up? Well that’s been the case yet again when Corey Allan touched down early on and has looked likely on the left courtesy of some slick service from Latrell Mitchell. Meanwhile out on the right edge Marsters have proved a handful for his more experienced number in Michael Jennings, helping set up his fellow countryman, Jaxson Paulo for his first NRL try. Speaking of Paulo, he’s been solid yet again, first up stoping Sivo early on, then grubbering through to force and repeat set. Keep your eyes on these two in the second stanza.

Completions the Key (Again)
Carrying on from last week, our completion rate has been near perfect. So far we’re completing at 88% with the only errors coming in opposition territory.
