Rabbits down Bulldogs

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs Jersey Flegg side have been defeated 22-6 by the South Sydney Rabbitohs at ANZ Stadium on Good Friday.

The Bulldogs suffered their second defeat of the season after last week’s loss to the St George Illawarra Dragons.

Trailing 4-0 at the break, the Bulldogs were first to score in the second half and lead 6-4, before the Rabbitohs scored three tries of their own to register their third win of the season and sit in third position.

The Rabbitohs were first on the scoreboard when a quick play the ball saw halfback Blake Taaffe putting Volkan Er over for the first try of the match with a well-timed pass.

The Bulldogs continued to apply pressure in attack, but the Rabbitohs displayed strong goal-line defence to hold out the home side. 

The visitors defence stood tall once again when a desperate tackle from the Rabbits outside backs prevented Blake Clayton from scoring just before the break and head into half-time leading 4-0.

Following the break, the Bulldogs started with a line break setting them up in the Rabbitohs half, with a ricochet from a kick sending us over to score and the conversion from Jake Averillo giving us a 6-4 lead.

Rabbitoh Nick Mougios was held up over the line, and with a deft kick forcing a drop-out, the Red and Green scored again as Brock Gardner crashed over from the tap.

The following kick-off went out on the full from the Bulldogs, giving the Rabbitohs another chance to score and Peter Mamouzelos took advantage of the opportunity to crash over from dummy-half.  

The Rabbitohs sealed the match when winger Kane Allan managed to streak away to score and give South Sydney a 22-6 win.
