Real Rabbitohs Hammer Sea Eagles

The Real Rabbitohs have hammered the Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles 44 points to six in front of 8,900 fans at Aussie Stadium tonight (Saturday) in what can only be described as a dominating performance.

The Rabbitohs ran in nine tries to one, scoring 44 unanswered points in a confident and explosive 80 minute display.

The Sea Eagles opened the scoring early through a try to Anthony Watmough. Watmough charged through on a Monaghan gubber kick to score the four pointer. Michael Witt converted to give the visitors their six points.

The Rabbitohs then went on a 70-minute scoring spree giving the red and greens their third win for the season.

The first to score was David Fa'alogo who cleaned up the scraps from a spilled cross-field bomb.

Soon after the Rabbitohs hit the lead when winger Adam MacDougall touched down in the left hand corner, giving the home side a two point advantage. The try came from a slick backline move that paid off for the Rabbitohs' side.

South Sydney scored their third try for the half through five-eighth John Sutton. Sutton grubbered through the defensive line, the ball bounced off Jim Curtis' legs for Sutton to regather and score. He converted his own try to give the Rabbitohs a 14-six half time lead.

Sutton was the Rabbitohs' best in the first stanza, with Mick Moran, Yileen Gordon, Brad Watts, Scott Logan and Scott Geddes also causing the Eagles some problems.

The Rabbitohs went on with it in the second half with Brad Watts scoring the first try after the break. A South Sydney juniors backline movement saw Brad Watts take the spoils with Moran, Sutton and Gordon setting up the play. Watts converted his own try from the sideline to extend the Rabbitohs' lead to 14 points.

Shane Rigon scored soon after hen halfback Moran put him through the hole on the left hand side of the field.

Fullback Todd Polglase was the next to breach the Manly defence when Scott Logan touched the ball three times in the play to evetually find Polglase to score. Watts converted to give the Rabbitohs a 30-six lead.

Yileen Gordon then scored his first NRL try when he beat two defenders and slammed the ball down in the corner. Gordon had plenty of work to do to score the try and finished the play off well.

Mick Moran then scored a try of his own after setting up many of the others. He shimmied through four defenders to score adjacent to the posts and the Watts conversion took the Rabbitohs scoreline to 40.

To finish off the festivities, Manase Manuokafoa scored before full time when he dived over from dummy half to score his maiden try as well.

The Rabbitohs played all over Manly and really didn't give the Eagles a chance to get into the game.

The forward back was outstanding the backs were able to feed off their performance to put on the points.

The Rabbitohs now need a big crowd to turn out to the Sydney Cricket Ground next Sunday afternoon at 2:30pm to cheer them on to another victory, this time over the St George Illawarra Dragons.

Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles 20 (Mark Lennon, Jye Mullane, #17, #18 tries; Mark Lennon 2 goals)

Eouldn't you guys LOVE to hear our backline described like that. This is my interpreatation of our our backline:-

1. Brett Stewart - Fantastic
2. Scott Donald - Explosive, gets caught out of position WAT too much.
3. Terry Hill - Past his prime, doesn't offer enough except a RARE glimpse in attack
4. Paul Stephenson - Just not good enough
5. Chris Hicks - Totally OUT of form. Looks as though he has lost interest.
6. Michael Witt - The always improver
7. Michael Monaghan - great defender - shocking / disgusting attacking capabilities.

Lol@scott donald being explosive. Yeh, he's fast but he rarely uses his speed. I've never seen him try and break a tackle.
