NRL Round Six

Did you think that the Brisbane Broncos would be at the top of the NRL table after six weeks of action? Probably not and on Friday night they showed that they will be a tough team to beat as they defeat the Sydney Roosters 22-18. This was a great game of footy with both sides keen have some fun while also playing very aggressive. Sam Thaiday and Jared Waerea-Hargreaves went toe-to-toe with each other all game but it was Brisbane halfback Ben Hunt who stole the show in golden point extra time. He surprised everyone who thought he would kick a field goal, instead he scored a great try.

Also on Friday night the Cronulla Sharks continued their winning run with a win over the Newcastle Knights, 22-6. While the Sharks are winning games, the Knights are going in the other direction after a very good start to the season. Young half Jack Bird has been the shining star for the Sharks and looks to have plenty of potential.

James Roberts, remember the name. Roberts scored a hat-trick for the Gold Coast Titans as they defeated the Parramatta Eels 38-16 and he looks like the fastest man in the NRL. The Titans have had many problems this season, but they are a team to keep an eye on.

In Auckland on Saturday night we celebrated Manu Vatuvei's 200th game and the Warriors weren't going to let Manu down against the Tigers. They won 32-22 with Vatuvei scoring two tries in a good performance from the Warriors as they bounced back and showed that when their big forwards are playing well, anything can happen with the talent they have in their back line.

The Manly Sea Eagles are in a bit of a slump as they lost another game against the Penrith Panthers, loosing 22-12. That was followed by the Melbourne Storm defeating the Canberra Raiders 14-0. The Raiders fought hard and are showing that they won't be the easy-beats of the NRL this season but the Storm were too good and they scored one of the best tries so far this season.

So you might have picked the Broncos to be playing well, but what about the St George Dragons? They are defending very well and are showing that they'll be a tricky team to face, while they also have Benji Marshall who is leading the way. They beat the Bulldogs 31-6 on Sunday.

On Monday night we saw two great players face off against each other with Jonathan Thurston and Greg Inglis leading their teams. The North Queensland Cowboys were too good for the South Sydney Rabbitohs, winning 30-12 and it was Thurston who was once again the best player on the field. The Cowboys are a good team, but Thurston is in great form and who knows how good they could be.

NRL Round Four

The South Sydney Rabbitohs lost their first game of the season on Friday, they were beaten by the Parramatta Eels 29-16 with the Eels playing very well. Chris Sandow was great against his former team and we saw John Folau, the younger brother of Israel Folau played his first NRL game. The Eels are a dangerous team but they will need to keep winning games, not just win games randomly.

The Bulldogs grabbed a dramatic late win over the Tigers with Moses M'Bye kicking a field goal to give the Doggies a 25-24 win. 

Saturday saw the Newcastle Knights continue their unbeaten run as they defeated the Penrith Panthers 26-14. The Panthers had a few injuries but the Knights were once again very impressive with halfback Jarrod Mullen dominating, while Dane Gagai continued to impress and he could find himself playing State of Origin if he keeps this up.

A late interception try to the lightning fast James Roberts gave the Gold Coast Titans the win over Cronulla Sharks. Both teams battled hard, but the Titans got the edge with the late try to win 24-22. The Titans had Roberts who is one of the fastest players in the NRL but the Sharks also showed that they have some speed with young Valentine Holmes also playing very well despite his team loosing.

The St George Dragons worked hard to beat the Manly Sea Eagles 12-4 in a game that didn't give us many highlights. It's a great win for the Dragons though as they have struggled this season so far but they showed that when they hold on to the ball, they have enough attacking talent to trouble teams.

On Sunday the Brisbane Broncos were too good for the Warriors thanks to a big first half for the Broncos. They Warriors came back but they couldn't seal the deal with the Broncos holding on to win 24-16. Also on Sunday the Roosters were far too good for the struggling Canberra Raiders, with the Roosters winning 34-6. It wasn't all good for the Roosters with Blake Ferguson who has played well since returning the NRL leaving the field injured and he will be out for a few weeks.

The North Queensland Cowboys got their first win of the season thanks to a Jonathan Thurston field goal in golden point. The Cowboys came from behind against the Melbourne Storm with Thurston putting on a show in the last few minutes to get the scores level and then to win the game 18-17.

Following The Black Caps In The World Cup - Semi Finals

The Black Caps played South Africa in the first semi final of the World Cup and both sides put on a great show. The Black Caps won thanks to Grant Elliott who hit a massive six off the second to last ball when the Black Caps needed five more runs to win.

South Africa batted first and because it rained during their innings, their score was slightly changed. They set the Black Caps a target of 298 runs from 43 overs, both Faf du Plessis and AB de Villiers scored 50's along with David Miller who smashed 49 off 18 balls. The Black Caps bowlers had a tough day, Trent Boult picked up two wickets and Corey Anderson picked up three wickets but is was the South African batsmen who dominated.

It was the Black Caps turn to bat and captain Brendon McCullum knew that they had to get off to a good start. Despite South Africa having some of the world's best bowlers, McCullum was still able to bat like he has done throughout this World Cup. He smacked 59 off 26 deliveries, but once he was out the Black Caps had to work hard to not collapse. 

Kane Williamson didn't make many runs before he was out and both Martin Guptill and Ross Taylor also got out which meant that Grant Elliott and Corey Anderson had to step up. They did exactly that with Anderson scoring 57 and Elliott who scored the winning runs finishing with 84. 

South Africa had a few chances to get Anderson and Elliott out but couldn't, which allow the kiwis to get closer and closer to the target. Elliott hit a big six to win the game and everyone in Eden Park went nuts, the Black Caps had made the final.

Australia play India tomorrow in the other semi final. Who will play the Black Caps on Sunday? Hopefully the Black Caps can continue their great run!

NRL Round Three

It was another tough weekend of NRL action which kicked off on Friday night with the Bulldogs beating the Manly Sea Eagles and the Brisbane Broncos smashing the North Queensland Cowboys. 

These two games were very different as the Bulldogs and Sea Eagles battled away for 80 minutes with the Doggies winning 16-12. Both teams have tough forward packs and pride themselves on strong defence, but it was completely different in Brisbane as the Cowboys let the Broncos dominate them. The Cowboys didn't show up with the right attitude and the Broncos were good enough to make them pay, winning 44-22.

It was a massive Saturday with the Warriors beating the Parramatta Eels 29-16, the Dragons coming from behind to beat the Canberra Raiders 22-20 as well as the Melbourne Storm showing that they will once again be a dangerous team as the beat the Cronulla Sharsk 36-18. 

On Sunday we saw that the South Sydney Rabbitohs are still one of the best in the NRL as they fought off the West Tigers 20-6. The Tigers were good, especially with their forwards but the Rabbitohs and the Roosters are the two best teams for a reason.

The Newcastle Knights continue their great start to the season as the beat the Gold Coast Titans 20-18. The Knights have won their first three games, but will they be able to keep this up throughout the season? I'm not sure.

Monday night saw the Roosters take on the Penrith Panthers and like the Rabbitohs, we saw that the Roosters are on a different level. They won 20-12 with a strong effort from their forwards as well as centre Blake Ferguson who has joined the NRL again after being a naughty boy. He looks to be back at his best which will be great for the Roosters.

NRL Round Two

Round two of the NRL got underway on Friday night with the Canterbury Bulldogs beating the Parramatta Eels 32-12 and the Brisbane Broncos beating the Cronulla Sharks 10-2. The Eels were unfortunate because Chris Sandow, Semi Radradra and Tepai Moeroa all got injured but the Bulldogs were too good with fullback Brett Morris playing very well.

The Broncos were too tough for the Sharks in a game that could be called boring, but these are two teams who compete hard in the forwards and work very hard.

On Saturday the Penrith Panthers beat the Gold Coast Titans 40-0 with Jamal Idris scoring three tries and young Matt Moylan once again looking awesome. The Melbourne Storm lost to the Manly Sea Eagles in a close game, 24-22. Manly worked hard to come back from the news that their star players Daly Cherry-Evans and Kieran Foran will be leaving at the end of the year and showed unity after the game.

Many people have picked the North Queensland Cowboys as a team to watch out for this season but they have lost their first two games after they lost to the Newcastle Knights 16-14. 

On Sunday, the South Sydney Rabbitohs played the Sydney Roosters in a game that we were all looking forward to. It was a great contest with the best teams and best players in the NRL going against each other and there were many moments to make you stand up and go nuts like this try...

The Rabbitohs won 34-26 but the Roosters will be keen for revenge later in the year. Also on Sunday the New Zealand Warriors got their first win of the season as they beat the Canberra Raiders in Canberra. The Warriors won 18-6 thanks to back to back tries that blew away the Raiders.

Monday night was a sad night for St George Dragons fans with the West Tigers beating them 22-4. James Tedesco who plays fullback for the Tigers was impressive, he's very quick and has been unlucky with lots of major injuries so hopefully for the Tigers he can stay healthy.

Following The Black Caps In the World Cup - Game Six

The Black Caps played Bangladesh in their last pool game before the Cricket World Cup gets serious. Bangladesh were a great opponent for the Black Caps and offered a challenge for the kiwis which is what they needed.

Bangladesh batted first and made 288 thanks to a great innings from Mahmudullah who hit his 2nd century in a row! He scored 128 while Soumya Sarkar scored 51 as Bangladesh batted out their 50 overs and only lost 7 wickets. 

It was a test for our bowlers who have bowled well throughout the World Cup. Trent Boult picked up two wickets, along with Corey Anderson and Grant Elliott.

The Black Caps had to chase 288 to win and it was a shaky start as Brendon McCullum was out for 8. Thankfully, Martin Guptill made 105 and Ross Taylor scored 56 which was enough to get the Black Caps close to the target before Corey Anderson did what he does best at the end of an innings to give the Black Caps the win with 7 balls to spare.

The Black Caps now face the West Indies on Saturday in their quarter final which will be a huge game. The West Indies could be awesome or they could be no match for the Black Caps, which is why we love the World Cup!

NRL Round One

The NRL is back! Did you miss it? We certainly did and the 2015 season started in Brisbane as the Brisbane Broncos took on the South Sydney Rabbitohs. Unfortunately for the Broncos, the Rabbitohs were the much better team and showed that they will once again be one of the best teams in the NRL this season.

The Rabbitohs won 36-6 in very hot conditions which made it tough for the players. Isaac Luke was at his best for the Rabbitohs as he's very quick and powerful which makes his hard to tackle. 

On Friday night the Parramatta Eels defeated the Manly Sea Eagles with the Eels looking like a dangerous side this season. The Eels won 42-12 and they have a few young players like Tepai Moeroa and Semi Radradra who are very damaging but it was Chris Sandow who was at his cheeky best and he was very impressive.

Saturday's games saw the Newcastle Knights beat the Warriors 24-14, while the Sydney Roosters looked awesome and were far better than the North Queensland Cowboys as the Roosters won 28-4. On the Gold Coast, the Gold Coast Titans played the Wests Tigers in a very close game. Pat Richards is a freak and he kicked the winning field goal to give the Tigers a 19-18 win.

The Penrith Panthers are the team to watch out for in 2015 as they aren't a flashy team but are very good at just doing what is required to win. They played the Canterbury Bulldogs who have some huge forwards but it was the Panthers who were too fast and skillful for the Doggies as they won 24-18. The Doggies fought hard to try come back but it was too little too late as the Panthers sent a message to the NRL.

Many people thought the Canberra Raiders weren't going to be very good this season but they defeated the Cronulla Sharks 24-20 and they might be a difficult team to play against this season. People also thought that the St George Dragons wouldn't be very good and after their first game, they were right as they lost to the Melbourne Storm on Monday night 12-4.

The best team performance cam from the Rabbitohs and the Roosters this weekend. They were awesome last season and look like they have gone to a new level again. My player of the week was Mitchell Pearce who plays halfback for the Roosters because he controlled the game against the Cowboys and set up two of their tries.

Following The Black Caps In The World Cup - Game Five

The Black Caps faced Afghanistan on Sunday in a game that they were always expected to win easily. Afghanistan put up a good fight and made the Black Caps worked hard for their win but in the end the Black Caps were simply too good.

Afghanistan batted first and it was Daniel Vettori who was the star of the show for the Black Caps as he took four wickets, which was enough to give him 300 ODI wickets. That's a great effort from Vettori who has been playing international cricket for as long as I can remember.

Vettori finished with figures of 10 overs, four wickets for 18 runs which put the Black Caps in a great position as he not only took wickets, but Afghanistan weren't able to score many runs of him either. 

Trent Boult also bowled very well. He took three wickets and while the Black Caps were in control for much of the game, Afghanistan were able to fight their way to 186 which put some pressure on the kiwis. Samiullah Shenwari scored 54 and Najibullah Zadran scored 56 for Afghanistan which gave them some runs to work with.

Once again, Brendon McCullum got the Black Caps rolling with 42 off 19 balls. McCullum is not only a great captain in the field, but he is a leader who takes charge and sets a good example for his team. His quick runs put the Black Caps in a great position and Martin Guptill was able to score 57 runs which allowed the Black Caps the chance to cruise to victory having lost only four wickets.

The Black Caps will play Bangladesh next who they will again be expected to beat. Bangladesh are a very good cricket side though and will challenge the Black Caps who are first in their pool.

Following The Black Caps In The World Cup - Game Four

The Black Caps faced off against Australia on Saturday in a match that everybody was looking forward to. The Black Caps have improved a lot since their last game against Australia back in 2011 and this game was always going to be an exciting clash of two very good cricket teams.

Australia batted first and got off to a fast start thanks to Aaron Finch but when he was bowled by Tim Southee the Black Caps took control. Daniel Vettori came on to bowl very early thanks to a brave decision from captain Brendon McCullum and it worked as Vettori slowed the Aussies down and built some pressure. 

Trent Boult was the key man for the Black Caps though as he swung the ball and bowled with good pace. He took 5 wickets for only 27 runs off his 10 overs and the Black Caps took Australia by storm bowling them out for 151.

Brad Haddin was the best batsman for Australia with 43 which helped the Australians get a total that they could try and defend.

The Black Caps had the advantage after shocking the Aussies and when Brendon McCullum started to hit sixes easily, we all thought the Black Caps would win easily.

However that was not the case as the Australians fought back bravely with Mitchell Starc producing a beautiful spell of bowling. He took 6 wickets for 26 runs off 9 overs to give the Australians hope of a massive come back win.

Very quickly the Black Caps were 9 wickets down and the Australians were on top. Thankfully the Black Caps only needed to get a few more runs to win and Trent Boult had to survive a few more balls from Starc as Kane Williamson was at the other end.

Boult managed to not get out and then it was Williamson's turn. Williamson hit a six straight down the ground and the big Eden Park crowd started to celebrate. 

Following The Black Caps In The World Cup - Game Three

The Black Caps faced England yesterday, as they try to keep their good run of form going. Many people thought that England would offer a challenge for the Black Caps, especially after the Black Caps almost stood on the banana skin and slipped up against Scotland.

However, against England we saw one of the best games played by a New Zealand cricket side as they beat England with ease.

England batted first on a pitch that looked like it was going to be good for batting. 

That was until Tim Southee started to swing the ball and England simply had no answer to a great performance from Southee. Southee had 7 wickets from 9 overs, that's almost a wicket each over! His 7 wickets for 33 runs was the best bowling performance by a kiwi in a World Cup.

Thanks to that awesome bowling display, England only made 123 runs which was less than Scotland. The Black Caps only had a short run chase and they were eager to do a better job than against Scotland, they had the same attitude but this time they were able to put it in to action.

Brendon McCullum was the man for the Black Caps, he hit 77 runs off 25 balls which is crazy! McCullum hit 7 sixes and 8 fours to give the Black Caps an easy win.

It took England 33 overs to make 123 runs, while the Black Caps scored 125 off 12 overs. That's a great win. 

Following The Black Caps In The World Cup - Game Two

The Black Caps played Scotland in their second World Cup game. Scotland were expected to be easily defeated by the Black Caps, but the day before we saw Ireland beat the West Indies. That's why we love sport because nothing is for certain and Scotland came close, but not close enough.

Bowling first, the Black Caps were too good as they dismissed Scotland for 142 runs. Once again Tim Southee and Trent Boult both took wickets, they look like they are going to be very dangerous in this World Cup.

While it was good to see Southee and Boult once again bowl very well, seeing Daniel Vettori work his magic and Corey Anderson chip in with wickets was also good. The Black Caps have a very strong bowling attack and they performed despite their weaker opponent.

That meant that the Black Caps only had to get 143 runs to win. They tried to do it quickly, but unfortunately they lost a lot of wickets. Kane Williamson was the only batsman to score over 30 runs with 38.

Even though the Black Caps lost 7 wickets, they still were able to reach 143 runs and won the game. It doesn't matter how you win in a World Cup, you just have to win games and the Black Caps will be happy that they were able to win despite not batting as well as they should have.

The Black Caps now play against England in a big game. England are good enough to beat the Black Caps, but they will have to play very well. As kiwis we know that they won't be able to beat the mighty Black Caps!

Following The Black Caps In The Cricket World Cup - Game One

The Black Caps took on Sri Lanka in game one of the Cricket World Cup in Christchurch. The Black Caps once again were far better than Sri Lanka and they have shown that they are a team to watch out for during this World Cup.

In any sport, you want your captain to lead the way for the team and inspire them to achieve more. Brendon McCullum did that perfectly as he got the Black Caps off to a quick start, doing what he does best - giving the cricket ball a smack! McCullum hit 65 runs of 49 balls and the Black Caps didn't look back.

Martin Guptill scored 49 and Kane Williamson scored 57 to keep the runs flowing during the middle stages. We all know that Corey Anderson loves to smack the cricket ball around as well and he scored 75 runs off 46 balls at the end of their 50 overs to give them 331 runs.

That was too many runs for Sri Lanka to chase, but the Black Cap bowlers did well to ensure that it was never close. Tim Southee, Trent Boult, Adam Milne, Daniel Vettori and Corey Anderson took 2 wickets each to send a warning signal to the rest of the teams at the World Cup. 

Daniel Vettori bowled well, it's good to see the old guy back in action and he should be a key bowler for the Black Caps.

The Black Caps now play Scotland tomorrow (Tuesday) and they should win that game. 

It will be interesting to see if coach Mike Hesson gives some players a rest. It's a long tournament and games like this one against a weaker opposition should give the rest of the squad an opportunity.

Black Caps vs Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a little island off the coast of India and they love cricket. They came to New Zealand with one of the best batsmen in the world Kumar Sangakkara ready to see what the Black Caps were made of.

The Black Caps returned from playing Pakistan and this was their only Test series before they start to prepare for the World Cup. They played two Test's against Sri Lanka and won both as they continue to defend their home fields with impressive cricket.

The first Test saw the Black Caps play much better than Sri Lanka, thanks to Brendon McCullum who hit 195 runs off 134 balls. He hit 18 fours and 11 sixes! McCullum simply smashed it which is exactly what you want from your captain, which made life very tough for Sri Lanka.

However, it was Tim Southee and Trent Boult who really did the damage. Both these two guys are very good bowlers and were too good for Sri Lanka and both Southee and Boult picked up 13 of the 20 wickets needed to give the Black Caps a big win.

The second Test match was a lot closer, but it still ended with a big win to the Black Caps. This time it was Kumar Sangakkara who was awesome for Sri Lanka as he hit 203 to give Sri Lanka the advantage. Thankfully for the Black Caps, we have Kane Williamson who is one of the best young batsmen in the world. He played beautifully, getting 242 runs with help from little BJ Watling who got 142 runs.

This gave the Black Caps the lead and once again the bowlers did the job as they bowled Sri Lanka out for 196. That gave the Black Caps another win and they won the series 2-0.

It was great to see Brendon McCullum and Kane Williamson batting well and they are becoming heroes. We also have some very good bowlers which means we are a cricket team that the world needs to watch out for!

Four Nations Week 3

Well there we have it, the Kiwis will play the Kangaroos in Wellington this weekend to see who will be the Four Nations champs. The Kiwis battled hard against England to win 16-14 while the Kangaroos beat Samoa 44-18 to secure a place in the final.

England were no easy beat for the Kiwis and this game was awesome to watch. Both teams played attacking footy and wanted to score points but England weren’t quite good enough. The Kiwis are lucky enough to have some of the best young forwards in the game and Jason Taumalolo was again a beast. He’s so big but so fast and can step better than most wingers, maybe even Shaun Johnson!

Our favourite player Manu Vatuvei scored another try in the corner but he had a tough afternoon marking English winger Josh Charnley. Charnley got the better of Vatuvei a few times with too much speed around the outside, but we love Manu and he had the last laugh with the Kiwis winning.

The Kiwis will play the Kangaroos who were far too good for Samoa. Australia are lucky to have the likes of Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk and Daly Cherry-Evans which was the difference at the end of the day. Did you see how quick Cherry-Evan was? He was way too fast for the Samoan defence and scored a great try.

Samoa have some big boys but it was the Kangaroos who dominated the forward battle. Big Dave Klemmer for the Kangaroos played very well, he is huge and runs it hard and straight which gave the Aussies a big boost every time he hit it up.

It was good to see Greg Inglis make an impact as well. He makes it look so easy and it is like he is flying when he runs the ball. Samoa would not be happy with the way they played, they had played so well all tournament but against the Kangaroos they were not on the same level.

So who are you picking between the Kiwis and Kangaroos? We are obviously going for the Kiwis! It would be awesome to see them win the Four Nations in front of their home crowd, but this Kangaroos side is still very good. The Kiwis will need to play at their best and work very hard to defeat this classy Australian side. Bring it on!

Four Nations Week 1

Wow, what a great start to the Four Nations! We were treated to some exciting rugby league with the usual big hits, skill and pride as players represent their country.

It was a double header in Brisbane with England and Samoa getting the Four Nations started. Many wouldn't pick Samoa as a dangerous team, but against England they were pretty good with the likes of big Mose Masoe and Josh McQuire being very hard to stop. The big Samoan crowd gave their boys a big boost but it wasn't enough to help them win with England too good, 32-16.

Samoa didn't have the play makers to be able to control the game like the English but they did have Pita Godinet who was awesome at hooker. England were able to compete with the big Samoans thanks to having the Burgess twins and James Graham in their forward pack but it was Gareth Widdop and Sam Tomkins who England's best.

The Kiwis, how about the Kiwis! They defeated the Kangaroos 30-12 with the Kiwis starting the Four Nations with a very good performance. The Kangaroos lost both Greg Inglis and Daly Cherry-Evans to injury early on in the game, but the Kiwis forward pack were too big, too strong and too powerful.

Shaun Johnson had a great game at haflback while Kieran Foran did a good job beside Johnson. Johnson gives the Kiwis some explosive attack but Foran gives them a solid option, together they form a great combination.

The best thing for the Kiwis was their forward pack. Their forwards have more skill than you and I as well as being far more athletic. They aren't just fat boys who run straight, they can step, they can pass and they can off load. This gives the Kiwis an edge as they charge through the middle and then their backs can have some fun.

Awesome start to the Four Nations, we love international rugby league so hopefully it stays this way!

The NRL Grand Final

I'm 23 years old. You are probably a lot younger than me, so you probably know that the Rabbitohs are pretty good? You have seen them dominate NRL teams with their size in the forwards thanks to the Burgess brothers as well as seeing the freak Greg Inglis do what he does best - be a freak of nature. You have seen John Sutton show his skill while also admiring Adam Reynolds for being a great halfback.

However, my memory of the South Sydney Rabbitohs is that they sucked. For most of my life, the Rabbitohs have been the joke of the NRL, always finishing near the bottom of the table and being easily beaten each week. I had only heard about how the Rabbitohs were once the greatest team in the NRL, for a long time.

The stories of the great South Sydney Rabbitohs have been passed down, from fathers to sons, from mothers to daughters, from grandparents to grandchildren. That is why the history has never been forgotten.

That is why, when the Rabbitohs knew they would win the 2014 Grand Final, Sam Burgess started to cry. That's why Greg Inglis started to cry. That is why the thousands of Rabbitohs fans went crazy and that is why you probably celebrated even though you hate the Rabbitohs.

The Rabbitohs were too good for the Bulldogs. Coach Des Hasler said so after the game. But the Grand Final gave us much more than a game of footy. With the first hit up Sam Burgess broke his cheek bone, his face began to look like a fighter's who had taken some heavy hits. Sam Burgess then kept playing, he kept tackling and he kept running as hard as he could. He wasn't going to give up.

His younger brother George scored one of the best Grand Final tries ever. A prop, running like a winger using Tony Williams as a speed bump. After the game George and his twin brother Thomas said that Sam was their hero. They meant it.

There was Greg Inglis, scoring and doing his trade mark celebrating - the Goanna (an Australian lizard) where he crawls along the grass. He does this to represent his people and he did it on the biggest stage. Inglis won the premiership with Melbourne, he's won State Of Origin many times and he's won a World Cup with the Kangaroos, but none of them made him cry. This was special.

The Rabbitohs won their 21st NRL title. They had to wait 43 years to win it. 43 years is a long time. They deserved to be able to celebrate with their fans who are the best fans in the NRL, they stick with their side through thick and thing. They stick with their side through 43 long years of nothing.

Congratulations South Sydney.
