NRL: Sydney Roosters 28-12 South Sydney Rabbitohs

The oldest rivalry in Australian rugby league had to wait a little longer than usual to be rekindled but when it did the Roosters made up for lost time against the Rabbitohs. The premiers arrived with an 0-2 record but made a mockery of that over the 80 minutes with the returning Boyd Cordner and debutant Josh Morris demonstrating that at full strength Sydney’s Easts remain a force to be reckoned with.

A six-point half-time lead felt unders for the Chooks after they defended with control and attacked with craft, in particular Luke Keary’s kicking game. But the game was won in a blitz after the interval when they crossed twice before the Bunnies had mentally left the sheds.
