South Sydney NRL 2009The attacking form of the South Sydney Rabbitohs has continued, with the Jason Taylor coached side romping home 40-20 over the woeful Roosters – despite a slight lapse in defence from Souths midway through the game.

Brad Fittlers side missed a scary 47 tackles as Jamie Simpson ran in a triple for Souths, the win continuing the recent good form for the Bunnies as they make a late charge for the NRL Finals.

While the Roosters are no chance of the semi’s, the simple fact that they face the prospect of the wooden spoon would surely have been motivation enough – but again, missed tackles, basic errors and limited structure in attack saw them crab across field too much – making them easy pickings for the rushing Rabbits defence.

The only good news for the Bondi boys was the safe passage of Anthony Minichiello who returned and got through the game in one piece. His replacement in recent years Sam Perrett remained in the custodian role and rewarded his coach by again having a strong showing.

Revolving hookers Issac Luke and Craig Wing played their roles beautifully for Souths, with the strong John Sutton running and passing ideally as he has in the past few weeks.

Such is the form of Craig Wing, that Jason Taylor needs to find room in the starting side for the NSW representative. Wing rotated from rake to pivot tonight and was dynamic in both positions, getting a try for himself and looking dangerous on most touches.

The other confidence booster for the Rabbitohs was the good kicking of Sutton and Sandow, the two halves have improved their game off the boot and continued to give their side good thrust and field position tonight.

The ultimate test will come next week when Souths face a Bulldogs side licking their wounds, if they can shut out the Belmore boys – the Bunnies are sitting ideally for the finals and will like their chances in the weeks ahead.
