That's all she wrote - the Rabbitohs have put on 32 unanswered points to record a 32-18 win after trailing the Wests Tigers 18-0 early.

South Sydney Rabbitohs 32-18

79

UNSUCCESSFUL FIELD GOAL SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS
Field goal attempt by Adam Reynolds unsuccessful.

Long range field goal attempt from 45 metres for Reynolds........... hits the crossbar! No dice.

South Sydney Rabbitohs 32-18

78

We have all four Burgess brothers - Sam, Luke, Thomas and George all on the park for the first time.

South Sydney Rabbitohs 32-18

77

TRY SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS
Scored by Luke Burgess. Conversion attempt by Adam Reynolds successful.

Another Burgess scores, Luke busting through this time, and Mrs Burgess goes nuts up in stands. Reynolds converts and this now looks dominant for the Bunnies.

South Sydney Rabbitohs 32-18

74

Tigers with it in Rabbitohs territory but Marshall with an atrocious final tackle option puts his second rower into a ball and all tackle. Souths handover.

South Sydney Rabbitohs 26-18

71

TRY SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS
Scored by Nathan Merritt. Conversion attempt by Adam Reynolds successful.

Issac Luke bursts through the middle of the ruck, draws the last man and puts Merritt through for another try. Souths are flexing the muscle now. Reynolds converts.

South Sydney Rabbitohs 26-18

67

SUCCESSFUL PENALTY GOAL South Sydney Rabbitohs
Penalty goal attempt by Adam Reynolds successful.
Benji Marshall penalised for a strip 40m out from his own line. Reynolds makes no mistake to put the Bunnies two in front, their first lead today.

South Sydney Rabbitohs 20-18

64

Bizarre passage of play, Reynolds intercepts and runs to the Tigers' 20m, it's stolen from him and now the Tigers have it and are making metres at will...

18 all

60

Souths' with some quite uncharacteristic play tonight. Keary is forced to be the kicker on the last, he just grubbers it dead. Tigers 20m.

18 all

56

Another set for the Tigers, Adam Reynolds is forced touch-ingoal. Line dropout doesn't do much for the Tigers, dropped on tackle three.

18 all

54

Sam Burgess penalised for holding down too long in the tackle. Tigers penalty will again give them a shot at reclaiming the lead.

18 all

51

Souths error puts the home side on the attack, but a few tackles in and there's a knock on from Keith Galloway. Rabbitohs scrumfeed on their own 10m line.

TRY SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS
Scored by Sam Burgess. Conversion attempt by Adam Reynolds successful.

Sam Burgess with sheer determination and they won't stop him. He slams it down. Reynolds converts to equal the ledger. 18-all.

We're back underway at Allianz, the Tigers are the first side to go on an attacking raid.

Wests Tigers 18-12

"Oranges" as they call it and the Bunnies will be happy to go in six points down after a horror start. The Tigers are still a chance but need to steel their defence.

Wests Tigers 18-12

39

TRY SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS
Scored by Dylan Farrell. Conversion attempt by Adam Reynolds successful.

That's a cruel bounce for Lote Tuqiri... it's evaded him at the last gasp and Dylan Farrell is there to clean up the mess! Adam Reynolds converts the try and it's only six points the gap at the break!

Wests Tigers 18-12

35

VIDEO REF called on again for a provisional NO try to Lote Tuqiri. Appears there's a knock on by Simona in the lead up. And that's the case. Knock on Tigers, NO TRY, changeover Souths.

Wests Tigers 18-6

28

TRY SOUTH SYDNEY RABBITOHS
Scored by Adam Reynolds. Conversion attempt by Adam Reynolds successful.

The Rabbitohs score down the right channel with Adam Reynolds getting the visitors on the board. Is the start of a Bunnies comeback? Reynolds reduces the margin to 12 with the conversion.

Wests Tigers 18-6

20

Well that's not a good decision. Bodene Thompson reefs the ball from the hands of Bryson Goodwin but it's ruled a knock on. Not even an overturn on video review there. Tigers scrum on their own 30m.

Wests Tigers 18-0

15

TRY WESTS TIGERS
Scored by Ben Murdoch-Masila. Conversion attempt by Benji Marshall successful.

A bomb goes up and it's not controlled by South Sydney... MURDOCH-MASILA HAS IT! He's scored!!!! What's going on here? Marshall converts it and it's, yes, 18-NIL to the Tigers.

Wests Tigers 18-0

15

Video referee decision for the Tigers... Murdoch Masila has scored. Are we in an alternate universe folks?

Wests Tigers 12-0

TRY WESTS TIGERS
Scored by James Tedesco. Conversion attempt by Benji Marshall successful.

WOW! Anasta shifts the play right and the man-short Rabbitohs can't handle the fluid passing... it finishes with Murdoch Masila drawing the last defender and Tedesco takes the spoils. Marshall converts!

Wests Tigers 12-0

8

TRY WESTS TIGERS
Scored by Tim Simona. Conversion attempt by Benji Marshall successful.

We have a green light - decision overturned! Simona has gotten the ball down before Inglis took off with it in a strip. Marshall converts.
Here we have Jared Maxwell's video referee audio: "In the act of scoring the South Sydney player has committed a strip which the Tigers player has reclaimed. Play on, enough evidence to overturn the on-field decision and award a try."

Wests Tigers 6-0

6

Video Referee possible NO TRY for the Wests Tigers. Tim Simona looks to have crossed but we're not sure he's got it down.

SIN BIN
Sam Burgess is sent to the sin bin.

Four minutes and a Burgess brother has been Sin Binned! The Tigers were rolling upfield off repeated breaks, and big Sammy was holding a player down too long. Professional foul and Perenara & Haines have no qualms marching him for ten minutes.

We are underway at Allianz Stadium after a moments silence for Ben Groat, the brother of Wests Tigers forward Matt Groat.

Welcome to Allianz Stadium for Friday night footy. On paper this is a huge mismatch - but there's plenty of special occasion to the evening. For the hosts it's the home farewell for Benji Marshall after his decision to join the Auckland Blues Super Rugby side in 2014, while for South Sydney it's the first time that any first grade side since 1910 has had FOUR brothers appear in the same match.
