"Today SSFC was playing vs West Tigers. It was a Rabbitohs show with 11 tries & the final score's 54-10. The Rabbitohs dominated the all game with a terrific first half. 4 tries in the first 20mn starting with one scored by Nathan Merritt 2mn after kick off. We saw a 95m run from GI (!) whose day it was as he scored 4 tries today! The boys had a good online defence (which is rarely seen in Souths games). Souths was leading 38-4 at half time with 8 tries. In the second half the West Tigers played a better game but were never a danger for our favourite team. This is Souths10th victory with a 54-10 win. Glory Glory to South Sydney."
What a game and what a way to win! This team just went out and did what they have trained hard to do - play focused, intense, no error footy. Just business; scoring by creating their own opportunities and capitalizing on the other team's weaknesses. A team effort and a team victory. I can't tell you what a thrill it is to see the games in person, to experience the joy of all the long time South Sydney fans as they watch their team play so well and see their years of hopes and dreams become real in such a dedicated and gifted team. It's odd, because if I was at a football or baseball game in the States that had such a lopsided score, many would have headed for the exits not far into the second half. But hardly anyone moved, in fact so many stayed long after the hooter sounded, to cheer the players until they finally made their way off the field, even waiting for Isacc Luke, who is always the one who lingers the longest, making his way around the stadium to salute the fans. Because that is the point, it's about this team, their faithful supporters and the journey they are on this magical season.
