Game set match. Souths dominated from start to finish, if we're being honest. Big turnaround after a smashing by Penrith last Sunday.
Milne scores in the corner off the scrum, but the touchie has a forward pass.
Lussick with the error late just 10m out from the Bunnies line. Scrum... dangerous...
Jakob Arthur kicks in behind the line with Latrell Mitchell nowhere to be seen... chases through and scores untouched under the sticks!
Both teams throwing it around a bit late in the game. Some entertaining footy.
Moses bangs over the extras super quick, despite the result being long-gone.
Just misses from the sideline.
Sivo finally gets on the board and Parra have their third, very much a consolation try in the corner.
Getting a bit ugly for the blue and gold now... Reynolds nails the extras again.
Yep, the Bunnies have another, and it's a hatty for Gagai too! Absolute mayhem down the Eels' right edge.
Parra try something fancy down the right edge, but the in-field kick from Fergo isn't ideal. It bounces for Reynolds and the Bunnies are out of trouble.
Getting the feeling the Bunnies could turn it on here. Some ambitious footy in the last little while.
Reynolds back to the harder angle from the touchline... stares up at his own face on the Stadium Australia big screen - and nails it.
The hatty is up for AJ! Easy stuff and Ferguson is exposed on that wing again, and inside the final 20 it looks like the result is beyond reasonable doubt.
Moses can't add the two from that angle. Margin is 16.
Somehow Isaiah gets his regular try - Sivo gets it off a high kick, he pushes it back to Blake who gets it to Papali'i who scores an entertaining four-pointer in the corner.
...to SIN BIN Ryan Matterson. He's on report for high contact that happened the previous play 40m back up the field. Souths now get a penalty and they're still 20m short of where they'd reached. Weird moment.
Souths fly up the park, and eventually are caught, but Sutton's stopped play and run backwards 40m...
Easy conversion for Reynolds.
And Gagai has a double - a similar scrum play just from further out and the home side pick up where they left off!
Nathan Brown comes up with an error inside his own 40m. Souths huge chance...
Game on for the second half. Eels first use.
HT and it's really all Bunnies. Great half from the home team.
Why not...? OK, he misses from long range. But worth a shot!
Much happier times for Reyno this attempt, closer to the sticks and it sails through.
Gagai gets the Bunnies another. They're having plenty of luck down the left edge, Parra's defence with no answers.
Papali'i back out there now as the Eels go on the attack. He gets the ball near the sideline and is... carried over it.
Reynolds likely filthy with AJ scoring on this wing, because he's missed from a similar spot.
AJ with a double! Numbers to the left and a man down, the Eels are powerless to stop him.
Gutho smashes open the Souths' line on the far touchline and... it's a Bunnies penalty. He's gone through a gap created by an obstruction. Home team penalty on halfway.
SIN BIN. Papali'i is given his marching orders after Milne is dragged down and held onto following a break. Parra to 12 men for ten minutes.
Challenge is good! Souths retain possession.
Souths ruled to have knocked on but we have a captains challenge. Parra put a cross-field kick up and Gagai is ruled to have lost it. We're checking whether in fact he did. If he didn't he's kept it in and it's play on.
This game has turned on its head now. Souths with an error mid-field and Parramatta have a scrum in near halfway.
Moses uses that ol' golf swing... moves in, kicks it and.... adds the extras from 10m in from touch.
Gutho is the man to lead them back. Their second foray into the Bunnies' 20m... Arthur finds the Eels' fullback off a fairly lucky bounce.
All Souths so far. More steel in defence, silky attack and the Eels just look a bit shell-shocked. They're struggling to make metres against the Bunnies here.
No good for Reynolds this time, from a fairly difficult angle on the near sideline at the north end of S.A.
Bit too easy really. Parramatta caught out on the edges and AJ takes advantage in the left corner.
Parra forced into a drop-out. Good set from Souths and a clever last-tackle kick. Opacic can't get out of the in-goal.
PENALTY South Sydney. Bunnies winger Milne spills it fielding a kick but the Eels are offside so the red-and-green get the ball anyway.
Reynolds pushes the ball through those big sticks for a perfect Rabbitohs' start.
COOK STRAIGHT FROM THE SCRUMBASE, DUMMIES AND GOES THROUGH THE GAP! WOWEE.
Gutho spills it in the tackle after fielding the Bunnies' last-tackle kick. Big chance for the hosts...
KICKOFF > Time off just two tackles with Oregon Kaufusi picking up a head injury making a tackle... nope, not even a HIA. We resume.
Uncle Allen Madden, Gadigal Elder, offers his Welcome to Country.
Both clubs walk out together, wearing impressive indigenous jumpers in their club colours. A quick squiz at team changes - the Bunnies have opted to bench Jacob Host, with Cam Murray moving to the second row and Nicholls coming in at lock. Parra are 1-17.
The NRL's Indigenous Round continues on the lands of the Burramattagal and Wangal people, where the South Sydney Rabbitohs and Parramatta Eels face off on the turf of Stadium Australia.
