A Massive Game for Our Forwards

When his side needed him the most, Cameron Murray stood tall and led the Rabbitohs to their first win of the season with a memorable performance.

Murray blitzed the Roosters defence with the first try of the night and made his presence felt with an assist on the next two tries.

The skipper was inspirational leading from the front, giving his side the much-needed momentum they needed to run away with an early lead.

Keaon Koloamatangi wore his heart on his sleeve in an emotionally-driven performance, representing his Tongan heritage.

Koloamatangi ran for 146 metres with 64 post-contact metres along with a special try. Playing for the entire 80 minutes, the second-rower poured his emotions out in his post-try celebration on a day so close to his heart.

Jai Arrow complimented the forward pack with a team-high 173 run metres and 81 post-contact metres.

With 33 tackles in defence, Arrow proved his worth on both sides of the field, his dangerous runs inspired the forward pack and was crucial in gaining momentum.

Murray, Arrow and Koloamatangi were the notable standouts in the forwards, however, it was an impressive collective effort that allowed everyone in the pack to set a platform for the attack.

Combinations in the spine

Whether it was the link-up play in the middle between Murray and Cook or the dangerous attack of Walker and Mitchell, the Rabbitohs spine clicked on all levels.

Lifting in his 150th game, Damien Cook looked lethal in both attack and defence, distributing the ball with ease and precision.

With 123 passes and 79 run metres coming from dummy-half, Cook’s ability to find his halves whilst damaging the defensive line showed why he’s one of the game’s best.

It was an impressive performance from Lachlan Ilias, showing more flashes of superstar potential and looking much more confident leading the side around in attack.

Ilias link-up play with Cody Walker lifted his performance and allowed both players to shine.

The halves linked up on several occasions and set up a try in the process, along with forcing two dropouts, the duo kicked for 434 metres – putting the Roosters on the backfoot throughout the game.

Ilias’ confidence looked at an all-time high and in such a high-pressure game it is a positive sight to see the young halfback flourish.

Murray’s outstanding night was elevated by a stellar performance from Cook, the hooker’s rapid play from dummy-half allowed Murray to catch the Roosters off-guard numerous times.

The captain elevated the Rabbitohs with a man of the match performance with a try, two try-assists, 141 running metres and 38 post contact metres.
