Rabbitohs v Sea Eagles Trial 4pm Sunday 11th February Industree Group Stadium in Gosford

The Rabbitohs have announced their squad for their first pre-season match of the 2024 season against the Sea Eagles to be played this Sunday 11th February at 4pm at Industree Group Stadium in Gosford.

Rabbitohs Assistant Coach Joe O’Callaghan has named Braidon Burns as captain for the clubs first hit out of the 2024 pre-season.

Players To Watch

Most of the regular first grade team will be sitting this one out. Burns, Taane Milne and Buddy Gordon are the only players with first grade experince. Leon Te Hau gets his chance to impress on the wing and NSW Cup enforcer Brock Gray will no doubt be keen continue his impressive 2023 form up front.

Keep an eye on former Bulldogs hooker Ryan Gray who played well last week against the Bears at Hills Grammar. Townsville Blackhawks Cade Maloney and Nicholas Halalilo get another shot to stake their claims. On the bench Harry Quinlan also caught the eye last week and Chase Chapman was close to being man of the match. Look out for both of them when they take the field.

Pathways Recap & Round 2

As the NSWRL Junior competitions charge into round 2 let’s take a look at last weeks results and preview this weekends clashes.

The Rabbitohs left Collegians Sporting Complex in Figtree on Saturday with just 1 win and 3 losses. This weekend the Penrith Panthers await, no doubt ready to put our young Souths team to the test again.

Lisa Fiaola Cup

Round 1: Steelers 14 – Rabbitohs 12

Our Lisa Fiaola Cup girls began their inaugural season with a narrow 14-12 loss to the Steelers. An Illawarra penalty goal in the second half proved to be the winning difference. Rabbitohs centre, the fiery Kirrawahn Duckett scored the historic first try for the club. Bunnies winger Lani Anderson scored the only other try for the visitors.

Round 2: Rabbitohs v Panthers 10am Saturday 10th February Windsor Sports Complex, Windsor

Coach Mick Daley has named an unchanged lineup. Veronica Sefo and Tahlya Dower have been added to the extended bench.

The Panthers Lisa Fiaola girls defeated the Dragons 36-0 last week at BlueBet Stadium, Penrith.

Tarsha Gale Cup

Round 1: Steelers 30 – Rabbitohs 12

Our Tarsha Gale Cup girls scored first and were in the game in the first half but the match got away from them after the break. Second rower Abbie Ritchie was undeniably among the Rabbitohs best performers, scoring 2 tries. Lotomau Sagigi scored Souths only other four pointer in the 6 tries to 3 loss.

Round 2: Rabbitohs v Panthers 2pm Sunday 11th February Industree Group Stadium, Gosford

The big stage awaits for this clash on Sunday, it will be played as the curtain raiser to the Rabbitohs v Sea Eagles first grade trial at Gosford.

Souths half back Anahera Paekau is out, replaced by Lenniece Wright. Lotomau Sagigi is out, replaced on the wing by Haleigh McCarney. Mikayla Langer moves to lock and Claire Roberts-Hickling comes into the 17.

The Panthers Tarsha Gale team smashed the Dragons 40-0 last week. In the 50th minute Panthers prop Taylor Keppie scored 1 of her teams 8 tries. I have no idea if Taylor is related to Rabbitohs newly recruited front rower Sean Keppie so I might ask him next time I’m at training.

Harold Matthews Cup

Round 1: Rabbitohs 52 – Steelers 6

Our Harold Matthews Cup lads remain undefeated with 2 trial wins and last week they won 52-6, absolutely dominating the Steelers on their home ground. Illawarra had no answer as our boys opened their season with a 9 tries to 1 win.

Rabbitohs captain, back rower Lochlin Moses was indeed outstanding. His ball playing was superb and he was rock solid in defence. Flying fullback Darcy Feltham scored a hat trick of tries. This gifted number 1 makes it look easy as he glides across the turf. Powerful prop Tanner Mahon then scored 2 tries in four minutes leaving defenders scattered in his wake both times.

Round 2: Rabbitohs v Panthers Saturday 10th February 11:30am Windsor Sports Complex, Windsor

The Panthers defeated the Dragons 44-4 last week so this game is shaping up as a real test for both teams.

Lachy Walters is out replaced at five eight by Tamoko Berryman-Duff. Christopher Petrus replaces Dayne Jennings on the wing and Cody Hill comes into the 17.

Round 1: Steelers 26 – Rabbitohs 12

In this clash top tries were scored by both Rabbitohs starting props, Jason Hallie and Setefano ‘Junior’ Sele. The Steelers were however too good in the end posting a 5 tries to 2 win.

Round 2: Rabbitohs v Panthers 1pm Saturday 10th February Windsor Sports Complex, Windsor

The Panthers went down 26-24 to the Dragons last week so both teams will be desperate to get the 2 points this weekend.

Daniel Wright drops out and is replaced in the centres by Lancelot Tovio. Eden Potter moves to hooker, Daniel Lua switches to lock and Michael Ibrahim goes back to the bench. Harrison Rooke comes into the 17.
