Round 4 review, Rabbitohs vs Bulldogs

South Sydney Rabbitohs 20 defeat the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 16

The first match on Good Friday seen rivals South Sydney Rabbitohs hosting the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ. An early try attempt resulted with Robert Jennings and Moses Mbye being taken from the field, both unable to finish the game.

The Morris brothers worked together to get the Bulldogs on the board first with a knock back by Brett, giving Josh the opening try of the match. Foran took over the duties with Mbye off the field and made it 6-0 with the sideline conversion.

The Morris brothers worked some magic again down the blind side resulting in Josh crossing for his second, before Foran had a moment he would soon like to forget as he was unable to convert from directly in front.

Referee Cummins called over Bulldogs captain Jackson who was playing right centre due to his side giving away multiple penalties. After words with the ref, he wasn't given anytime to get back in the defensive line, with a backline play resulting in Inglis scoring a try, Cummins did apologise to Jackson, not that it helped in the end. With the try converted the score moved onto 12-6 Bulldogs way.

Foran made up for his earlier mistake converting a penalty goal from infront giving the Bulldogs a 8 point lead at halftime.

Multiple errors and penalties by the Bulldogs finally took its toll, as Souths cross in the corner through Burns. With the second shank of the day the score line stayed at 14-10.

The scoreline stayed the same for the first 20 minutes if the second half, until the Bulldogs decided to take the two after receiving what was the 20th penalty of the game, 16-10.

A Hunt try resulted in Doueihi going for a conversion kick to level the scores up, but again hooked the ball leaving Souths trailing by 2 with 5 to go.

But that didn't matter as the bunnies had the dogs on the back foot and scored another try the very next set, with young gun Murray scoring next to the post. The conversion gave the Bunnies a 4 point lead, which they were able to hold onto to get themselves back to back victories.

Key point of the match:
Cummins costing the Bulldogs a try.

Boom's  player of the match:
Josh Morris, he may have been on the losing side, but he played an amazing game almost getting his side over the line.
