Broncos upset GI's 250th

South Sydney Rabbitohs 20 defeated by the Brisbane Broncos 24

The Rabbitoh's had a near perfect start as they were able to easily march down the field early and through some luck Walker got the first try of the game. Reynolds putting in a grubber the Bird couldn't control allowing a flying Walker to ground the ball just inside the dead ball line

The Broncos were next to score after some rushing Bunnies defence to place kick pressure on Milford backfired as the Broncos decided to run the ball on the last. It was a great team try with 6 passes and a kick, this time it was Boyd that got the ball down just inside the dead ball line, after a poor read from Kennar allowed him to sneak past. With the conversion tha scores were locked up at 6 all after 18.

The Bunnies were next on the board after a Oates drop ball gave the them a full set inside the Broncos 20m zone. A lovely set play resulted in Johnston crossing over for his 1st try of the night.

Both sides continued to make massive metres as the first half continued, but neither side were able to get on the board. Johnston producing a try saving tackle on Nikorima 5 before the break. The Rabbitoh's holding a 12-6 lead going into the sheds.

Nikorima eventually got his name on the scoreboard with a solo effort out of hooker going through untouched from inside the 10m. With the conversion tha score was locked up at 12 all with 30 minutes to play.

The Rabbitoh's took a penalty goal in the 53rd minute to give themselves a 2 point lead. But the lead didnt last long with Corey Oates scoring a try out of nothing, after the Broncos got a lucky call when Nikorima taking a intercept when offside.

The Broncos now had all the momentum and it resulted in another 4 pointer with Milford putting a kick through and James Roberts winning the race. With Isaako converting the try he extended the Broncos lead to 24-14.

The Rabbitoh's hadnt given up and a run of possession finally resulted in points through a Sutton try, even though it looked like it was off a forward pass from Walker. The conversion by Reynolds got the Bunnies back within 4 points. But unfortunately for Rabbitoh's fans the clock got the better of them.
