Junior Reps - Round Four Results

The South Sydney Rabbitohs Harold Matthews Cup and SG Ball Cup hosted the Newcastle Knights yesterday at Redfern Oval in round four of the NSW Junior Representative Competitions. See how the games unfolded below.

The Rabbitohs matched it the Knights and the scoreline in the end was not a true reflection of how the game unfolded.

Trailing 10-0 at the half, it was anybody's game and the Rabbitohs stuck tight right up until the three-quarter break with the scoreline at 16-4 when Robert Spencer finished beautifully in the corner.

"To the Knights' credit their defence was outstanding," said Rabbitohs Head of Elite Pathways and Player Development Joe O'Callaghan.

"Our boys really tried hard and are continuing to build each week, we probably just lacked the polish at the vital time."

Ryan McGrath was outstanding at second row and skipper Aaron Macey was voted best on ground for the second consecutive week.

It was also an opportunity to blood some youngsters with Coach Beau Falloon giving Debut jerseys to a number of players in this game.

The Rabbitohs SG Ball side continued their winning ways knocking off the Knights with a polished performance.

With the score at 14-4 to the Rabbitohs at the break, South Sydney were in a comfortable position heading into the second half.

Davvy Moale relished his opportunity to play in the NRL Trial match in Griffith last week and was a stand-out in the front row yet again.

Moale led the platform for Romano Cook at Dummy Half and Joseph Nohra at Halfback to steer around the side.

Cook, a Newcastle Junior had a hand in everything; setting up a couple of tries and also kicking a crucial 40-20 to swing momentum in South Sydney's direction.

Nohra showed calmness and control as well, generating five repeat sets from pin-point kicking, In the end the Knights found it difficult to withstand the pressure.
