Boasting the same surname and trying not to – or trying to, take your pick – outdo each other, stellar performances from Sam and George Burgess has seen the South Sydney Rabbitohs romp home to a comfortable 32-4 victory over the Gold Coast Titans.
With last week’s narrow loss to St George a blow, the Bunnies put it behind them as the Burgess brothers and youngster Luke Keary were on fire, as the Titans just could not contain the trio.
Equally impressive was the returning Matt King, who played in his first game of the season after breaking his arm twice earlier on in the year.
Playing in his 200th game for the club, Souths five-eighth John Sutton said the depth the club possesses is phenomenal and has done wonders for the team moving forward.
“We’ve got a great squad. It’s very competitive. Everyone in the lower-grades is pushing hard for a first-grade spot,” Sutton said.
“This is probably the best team Levitra I’ve been associated with at the club.
“It’s good times here and hopefully just keep it up.”
For the Titans, it was a simply a case of their own silly errors letting them down and being dominated in every facet.
Not easy to admit that you were thoroughly outplayed, coach John Cartwright was honest in his assessment post-game, admitting his side was bashed around by a more physical Bunnies pack.
“It wasn’t our worst performance of the year, put it that way,” Cartwright said.
“Physically they came through us and it steamrolled.
“It’s a matter of getting some pride back in our performance. Confidence is that invisible force, when it’s there you know it and when it’s not there you know it. It’s missing at the moment.”
The news just continues to go downhill for the Titans, with Matt Srama (ankle), Luke Bailey (ankle) and Albert Kelly (arm) all suffering injuries.
