Rabbitohs send Manly south on the ladder

In undoubtedly one of the upsets of the season, the South Sydney Rabbitohs have trounced premiership contenders the Manly Sea Eagles 40-32 in front of 11,114 fans at ANZ Stadium.

The Sea Eagles looked far different from the side that took on Premiers Melbourne Storm last Friday night and the gruelling match may have taken its toll as the Rabbitohs made them pay with a spirited display.

The match began as predicted with the Sea Eagles scoring early through Steve Bell and with some early mistakes from the Rabbitohs it looked as though it was going to be an easy afternoon for last year
