    Lets hope the best side wins and the referee/video has nothing to do with the result. GO THE BUNNIES.

    Should be a good one Maaze and wouldn't be surprised if it went down to the wire.

    I doubt Inglis will have a big impact tonight as it will take a game or so to get back into full swing.

    Manly by 2 for me.

    I took both sides under 13 and a draw in Pick the Margins so I sort of agree, no smash. I think Sutton is playing, Lyons and Watmough cannot be replaced with similar grade players. Also Lyons is a really good goalkicker, not sure of replacements form but forward to the game. I reckon if Souths don't fire tonight they can't win the comp.. GO THE BUNNIES.

    The Bunnies are a different side with Inglis and Sutton on the field. Neither played starring roles but did provide leadership, something that has been missing for the last few weeks.

    The Bunnies fans would have been worried when Inglis appeared to reinjure his knee in trying to save a try. It looked serious for a while but he recovered and seemed to be unaffected.

    It is not easy beating Manly at the business end of the season, this win will give Souths a lot of confidence.

    Winning in this fashion without Sam Burgess should also give them confidence for their run into the finals, he is close to being the best forward in the NRL.

    A great game.
    A shock for the bunnies in the first few minutes but they played hard, done good, to quote the great coach Jack Gibson.

    One thing that was not good was the tackle by Lima for which he was reported. I think it was Watmough who was held in the standing position by a couple of players. Lima came in late at his lower legs and rolled his body twisting the attacking players leg causing pain to his knee.

    I am against any tactic that is done purely to injure the tackled player. Included in this are grapple and crusher tackles. If the judiciary believe this tackle was a deliberate attempt to cause injury, then they should come down hard on it. The game does not need it.

    Agree completely Mega.

    The game does not need such foolish tactics.
