    ENGLISH import Sam Burgess got his Australian league career off to a flying start by scoring a try in his debut for South Sydney against Manly in their NRL trial today.
    Prop Burgess, who only played the first quarter of the match against a third-string Manly side, reached out to score Souths Sydney's first try of the match in the 11th minute.

    Souths were 12-0 down at the time and Burgess' try started a recovery that saw them score 42 unanswered points to win the match 42-12 in front of 5000 fans at the redeveloped Redfern Oval.

    Earlier, Burgess had fronted a team medical in Coogee as the NRL team for Saturday's inaugural All Stars match against an indigenous side on the Gold Coast went into camp.

    SOUTH SYDNEY 42 (Sam Burgess, Adam Reynolds, Jason Clark, Brock Molan, Kennedy Pettyborne, Josh Mansour, Curtis Johnston, Matt Mundine tries; Adam Reynolds 4, Eddie Paea goals)  MANLY 12 (Mitch Jowett, Phil Morwood tries; Daly Cherry-Evans 2 goals)

    Oh well, at least the Telecrap did acknowledge that it was only the 3rd string Manly side. It was a meaningless nothing game anyway.

    Who paid for the Redfern Development?  I wouldn't be surprised if they scored millions in government funds so they could host a trial every two years.

    Jethro mate - $20 bucks says it wasn't just a nothing game. It was to watch a reinactment of David and Goliath.

    Open ground to the public - $25 Mill I think but that blew out.

    If Redfern Oval is going to be open to the public it won't be long before it needs renovations.

    I know your point - and I agree with you, in reality the only player  likely to play much first grade only played the first 20 minutes - but other guys who have played first grade but didn't get bolded are Junior Vaivai, Jason Clark and Dave Tyrell.

    Also interesting to see Zeb Tawha in their lineup. I believe he is a manly junior, who has spent the last couple of years in Melbourne's system.

    Matabele, something of the order of $25 million.  Funnily enough Holmes a Court donated a sizeable amount of dollars to the reelection fund of Clover Moore at the last election.  Should be an ICAC referral for the Liberals when they get into power.  Interresting that Crowe made Burgess's dead dad a member of Souths.  I only thought the Mormons could convert the dead.

    Icac are useless as they don't investigate most matters referred to them - in the too hard or don't want to convict our labor mates basket

    Sunday at Redfern was like the Eagles lovefest day at the Diggers on Friday, but on a much grander scale. Redfern Oval is pretty ordinary despite the redevelopment. Porta-loos were the only option in the GA area and with the rain it was sinking down to the top of the foot in any grassed area. I came home with mud in all sorts of places and very wet.

    I have to hand it to the Bunny officials. As a day for the faithful it was a huge success. The opening by an aboriginal elder, the introduction of past great players, celebrities and oldie players in a touch game, the honour roll call of the 1970 GF victors, the introduction of the new players with their jerseys, the walk around the oval by the whole squad to shake hands with the fans. It was what the crowd wanted and they served it up. It is something I would like to see more of from Manly if the opportunity is possible.
