Round one of the Junior Representative competitions kicked-off this afternoon at Panthers Stadium.
The Rabbitohs Harold Matthews side went down to Penrith 28-4 while the Rabbitohs SG Ball Cup team were victorious with a 32-20 display.
The Harold Matthews got off to a great start scoring first through Tyrone Munro but ill-discipline with ball-in-hand invited the big Penrith Pack into the game.
While the game stayed at 16-4 right up until the last 10 minutes, Penrith went away with it in the end dotting down for two tries in the final few sets. Ashton Cini at Lock had a very solid match and the effort across the board could not be faulted.
In the SG Ball Cup South Sydney took out a 12-point victory with a brilliant team effort across the park.
This was a tremendous bounce-back from the 44-4 loss in the trial against Balmain only two weeks ago.
Davvy Moale played a pivotal role in the middle of the field as well as Tallis Duncan at Lock. Both wingers Carson Kaho and Evan Manning also came up with some big plays to close out the match.
South Sydney go up against the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles next week at home.
