Round 9 - Suncorp Stadium, Milton - Crowd: 34564

Penalty Goal: Rabbitohs
Kicked by Adam Reynolds.

Reynolds adds the two following the sin bin.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 32 - 16 Cowboys

Michael Morgan is sent to the bin after Klein judges him to have bumped Sam Burgess off a potential try scoring opportunity.


Cowboys give up possession and the Bunnies are steaming up field!


Cowboys back in possession and doing everything they can to close the gap. Attacking 10m out!


That's a no. Feldt's gone out during the put-down process. Souths scrum 10m out.


Time off, Bunker ruling on a Cowboys no try. Feldt... did he get it down?


Cowboys pick a penalty up after a high shot. Big chance to score here...


Conversion: Cowboys
Kicked by Jordan Kahu.

Kahu converts from the wide position and the margin is 14 with eight remaining.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 30 - 16 Cowboys

Try: Cowboys
Scored by Tom Opacic. Kick to come.

Opacic breaks a tackle down the left and evades the defenders to score what looks to be a consolation effort.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 30 - 14 Cowboys

134,677 across the four days of Magic Round - fair to call the concept a success?


North Queensland quickly running out of time to get back into the contest. Just rolling through their sets at the moment - Michael Morgan is trying things but the Bunnies are wise to it. This time the Cowboys get an escort penalty right on the Souths line.


A bit of a mess since the Rabbitohs' last try - some messy play from both sides. The Cowboys need to produce something to make a game of this.


Conversion: Rabbitohs
Kicked by Adam Reynolds.

Reynolds nails another.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 30 - 10 Cowboys

Try: Rabbitohs
Scored by Damien Cook. Kick to come.

Cookie! After a Burgess break up the middle, the big lug is brought to ground and Cook wastes no time in bursting out of dummy half to put the Rabbits further ahead.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 28 - 10 Cowboys

The Rabbitohs escape with that Cowboys set fizzing out.


*sips drink* yep, that's a Burgess drop ball. Cowboys scrum 20m out.


Conversion: Rabbitohs
Kicked by Adam Reynolds.

Reyno makes no mistake and the lead is now fourteen.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 24 - 10 Cowboys

Try: Rabbitohs
Scored by Cody Walker. Kick to come.

Walker has the Rabbits' fourth try!

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 22 - 10 Cowboys

Up to the Bunker. We're checking a potential knock on by Cody Walker in the lead up. Looked like a knock on from the first angle, but replays suggest it's a try!


Feldt with a lost ball inside the Cowboys' half. Rabbitohs attack.


Second half begins and the Cowboys start with plenty of energy. They believe they can cause an upset here.


Conversion: Cowboys
Attempted by Jordan Kahu.

Kahu pushes it wide as the siren sounds behind him.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 18 - 10 Cowboys

Try: Cowboys
Scored by Justin O'Neill. Kick to come.

JUZ E DOUBLE! Morgan with a superb little banana kick across the park a short distance to O'Neill and that's a TRY!

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 18 - 10 Cowboys

Cowboys on the attack... Sutton and Johnston pull off a great trysaver on Mitchell Dunn, with Morgan having provided him an open path to line.


HIA assessments being called for with a break in play.


Conversion: Cowboys
Kicked by Jordan Kahu.

Kahu in his second visit back to Suncorp this year since leaving the Broncos - and he's nailed it from out wide. Margin reduces to two converted tries.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 18 - 6 Cowboys

Try: Cowboys
Scored by Justin O'Neill. Kick to come.

The Souths' line does snap! O'Neill crashes over off a perfect ball by Mitch Dunn.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 18 - 4 Cowboys

Cowboys force a drop-out after kicking early in the set. Can they finally crack the Bunnies line?


Momentum well and truly with the Cowboys at the moment but they're lacking the finesse. Feldt spills a Morgan pass out wide and the Rabbitohs get the scrum 10m from their own line.


Cowboys look to force a drop-out but the kick is too deep.


Conversion: Rabbitohs
Kicked by Adam Reynolds.

Reynolds converts truly.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 18 - 0 Cowboys

Conversion: Rabbitohs
Kicked by Adam Reynolds.

Reynolds makes the lead twelve.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 12 - 0 Cowboys

Try: Rabbitohs

Conversion: Rabbitohs
Attempted by Adam Reynolds.

Not a difficult spot to kick from but Reynolds has shanked that one.

Crash, bang, Burgess! Sam runs a superb line and scores the opener off a Cook pass.

Damien Cook with a clever grubber from dummy half but Gavin Cooper cleans up and the Cowboys will drop it out.


Kyle Turner shoots through the line and now the Bunnies have good field position!


JT throws a forward pass as Jordan McLean looks to hit a hole 30m from the South Sydney line.


Solid metres from both sides in their opening sets.


Souths in their black-trim home jersey with the famous red and green stripes, the Cowboys in their white away jumper. Time on... Klein says GO. The final match of Magic Round BEGINS!

A bit of a delayed start to this one, the final game of a pretty amazing Magic Round. Souths have just one change with Burgess benched and Tatola starting. Cowboys lose Tuala, with Opacic into the centres. Granville is benched with Baptiste starting.
