South Sydney have lost star recruit Chris Walker for up to a month with a fractured arm. Walker sustained the injury in his left forearm in yesterdays heartbreaking loss to his former club, the Brisbane Broncos.
Walker will be sorely missed by the Rabbitohs as they come to terms with two narrow losses in two weeks but the club has shown tremendous spirit after their turbulent start to the season.
Souths were all but home in yesterdays match and only had to hold on for twenty seconds but Tallis stripped the ball from Paul Stringer in a one on one tackle close to Souths line, Shaun Berrigan then pounced and spread the ball wide for Brent Tate to score in the corner to give the Broncos an undeserved victory that sees them remain undefeated after two rounds.
Souths play the Cowboys at home this week which should see them regsiter their first victory for 2003 and give the club something positive to build on after two near misses against top sides.
