South Sydney Rabbitohs

Rabbitohs playmakers lead South Sydney to big NRL win

Walker and Reynolds put on a ball-playing clinic as they combined to create five of the Rabbitohs' eight tries with deft passing and skills on the fringes of the rucks.

Alex Johnston scored a hat-trick of tries for South Sydney and has now scored 13 tries in his past five games.

The result moves the Rabbitohs level on points with the Storm and Panthers, who will pick up two points each for the bye this weekend.

The North Queensland Cowboys remain 11th, two points above the Warriors who visit the Cronulla Sharks on Sunday evening.

Rabbitohs players reportedly caught up in Auckland lewd video chat

A 23-year-old woman has claimed two high-profile South Sydney players exposed themselves during a video chat without her consent.

The video chat is reported to have involved several star players, but only two have been accused of misbehaving, reports the Daily Telegraph.

One player allegedly exposed his genitals, while a second flashed his bottom - which the reportedly woman has screenshots of.

It is understood the players were celebrating their 30-10 win over the New Zealand Warriors on May 26 in Auckland.

Brisbane come from behind to beat Souths

In years to come, the game might well be best remembered for the debut of teenage prodigy Payne Haas.

The 18-year-old reinforced his star qualities with an outstanding debut for the Broncos.

The 194cm, 117kg giant ran for 86 metres despite only being on the field for 21 minutes.

"You're seeing the birth of a superstar," Phil Gould said on the Nine Network commentary.

The Broncos have concerns over Josh McGuire, with the lock-cum-hooker spending most of the second half on the bench with an ankle injury.

Cook runs into NSW Origin contention

Cook shot himself to the front of the queue for NSW hooking duties this year with a sublime performance in the 26-14 win over the Roosters on Thursday night, carving through the Tricolours ruck for 127 running metres as arguably the quickest dummy-half in the game.

Cody Walker goes from hero to zero in rollercoaster finish to Rabbitohs v Dragons clash

With the Dragons in cruise control late in the second half, Walker was the catalyst for a thrilling finish when he burst into life with two incredible plays to narrow the gap to four points with five minutes left on the clock.

With his halves partner Adam Reynolds off the field for a concussion test, Walker took on the responsibility to get his side back into the game, scoring a magical solo try with eight minutes to play.

Why Cook will never give up on his No.9 dreams

Cook did his chances no harm with a strong 60-minute stint against Wigan on Saturday night, playing a hand in three of the Rabbitohs' four tries.

The 26-year-old is quietly confident the end of the chopping and changing with Robbie Farah is near after new coach Anthony Seibold declared he wants an 80-minute rake. Whether Cook is the man for the job will come down to the Rabbitohs' Charity Shield fixture in Mudgee.

South Sydney Rabbitohs predicted Round 1 line-up

Those names – think Cam Murray, Tyrell Fuimaono, Braidon Burns and Siosifa Talakai – will be better for the run and provide competition to established players.

The big question is at No.9 given new coach Anthony Seibold's preference for an 80-minute hooker while Cody Walker should flourish in the security of the No.6 jersey given Inglis's return at the back.

Left centre and wing are wide open with Fuimaono, Burns, Hymel Hunt, Robert Jennings, Jacob Gagan, Campbell Graham, Adam Doueihi and Richard Kennar just some of the candidates pushing for spots on that edge.

NRL star has finger amputated

Crichton has suffered problems with his left middle finger for a number of years and was recently told he would need further surgery, ruling him out for another three months.

But the 21-year-old instead opted to have the digit amputated, his manager David Rawlings confirmed to Fox Sports Australia.

Crichton had been left with no knuckle on the finger, which made it susceptible to being broken, something that had happened on multiple occasions over the last two years.

Maguire: We're closer than people think

The Rabbitohs could drop as low as 14th on the Telstra Premiership ladder at the end of Round 14 after going down 24-18 to the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium on Friday, fighting back from a 12-6 half-time deficit to level the scores early in the second term before Brisbane sealed the win late.

Burgess takes early guilty plea

 Burgess will accrue 427 points meaning he will miss four matches and have 27 carry-over points.
