Souths win in golden point thriller

Rabbitohs debutant centre Dylan Farrell has turned into a hero at Redfern after scoring the winning try in the 90th minute in an extra-time thriller at ANZ Stadium.

In a game that look destined to be a draw, several veterans of the Rabbitohs team stepped up before the ball came to Farrell who scored his third try of the game, which just happened to be the winning try.

It was a game that was described as crazy and wacky, but also a game that the Tigers really shouldn’t have lost. They were in cruise control leading by 16 points with half an hour to play and managed to cough up the points which will leave Tigers fans scratching their heads.

The Bunnies win was made even sweeter by the fact that they were missing a host of key players including Colin Best, Beau Champion,  Sam Burgess,  Ben Lowe and several others. This was compounded by the fact that they lost John Sutton to a shoulder injury in extra-time.

In what was perhaps the most exciting game of the season so far,  Souths pulled off one of the best come-from-behind victories of all-time that is sure to please owner Russell Crowe.

It leaves the Bunnies on the fringes of the 8 and possibly in the 8 depending on other results, but they still have work to do.

For the Tigers, this is generally the time that they start to slide. Can they reverse it or will the trend of sliding down the table continue as it has the last few years?

On another sour note for the Rabbitohs on top of Sutton’s shoulder injury, winger Nathan Merritt could be in some trouble with the judiciary after being placed on report for a high tackle on Tigers player Chris Lawrence.
