Rabbitohs Moment: Utai Stars with Three
Take a walk down memory lane and re-live the three tries Matt Utai scored against the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Round 21 of the 2003 season.
The Bulldogs belted Souths 62-12 in their match at the Sydney Football Stadium.
Souths scored the first try of the match after five minutes through lock Ashley Harrison, but from there it was all downhill for the home side.
Canterbury led 20-12 at half-time, but the Rabbitohs folded in the second half allowing the Dogs to score almost at will in the closing stages.
Dogs winger Hazem El Masri set a new club record with his 11 goals from as many attempts. He also scored a try for a total of 26 points.
The Bulldogs scored 10 tries in all with winger Matt Utai bagging a hat-trick and Willie Mason crossing twice, both short-range efforts off dummy-half passes.
Mark O'Meley, Ben Harris, Nigel Vagana and Braith Anasta were the other try scorers for the Dogs, while Shane Rigon scored in the 47th minute for Souths.
For the Dogs it was the fourth game in a row they had scored 40 points or more.
