    • Some pride in the colours would help Wests Tigers. So would some on field leadership!
      Benchi Marshall has not made an impact yet.

    • disappointed it was only 54 points. credit to Mick Potter for giving some half-time direction, but Souths should've scored 60 to 70 easily. their worst enemy was the half-time break.

    • I was hoping they would bring the "Mercy rule" in because that was embarrassing what happened tonight. Wests should play their Holden Cup side instead!

    Live: Rabbitohs v Tigers

    Date

    Phil Mitchell

    Join LeagueHQ as the table-topping Rabbitohs take on the Wests Tigers at ANZ Stadium.

    Full-time: SOUTH SYDNEY 54 (G Inglis 4 G Burgess S Burgess B Champion N Merritt A Reynolds D Walker tries A Reynolds 7 goals) bt WESTS TIGERS 10 (L Fulton M Koroibete tries C Sironen goal) at ANZ Stadium. Referee: Jared Maxwell, Luke Phillips. Crowd: 19,718.

    80 min: Inglis achieves his first-ever four-try haul in the NRL, latching on to a Reynolds grubber just before full-time. Goodwin misses the kick. Rabbitohs 54-10.

    76 min: Consolation try to the Tigers' Liam Fulton. Sironen converts. Souths 50-10.

    66 min: Reddy forced back into the in-goal. Line drop-out. The Tigers will do well to hold out here.

    61 min: I spoke too soon - Sutton bursts through the middle and puts Inglis over for his third, and 10th of the season. Rabbitohs converts. Souths 50-4.

    59 min: Merritt almost over for his second but Reynolds' kick bounces over the sideline. I'm surprised Souths haven't already hit 50.

    53 min: NO TRY to Roy Asotasi because of a double movement. A bit too eager to get his name on the scoreboard there was Roy.

    47 min: Reynolds crosses for his first try of the season, scurrying 65m through the teeth of the Tigers' defence and doing well to outpace Koroibete. Once again, the Tigers' defence should hang their heads in shame. Terrible miss from the much-maligned Adam Blair. Reynolds converts. Souths 44-4.

    45 min: NO TRY to the Tigers after it was correctly ruled that Ben Murdoch-Masila had impeded Luke while the world's biggest halfback, Sironen, crashed over.

    41 min: Goodwin gets the second half under way.

    It's half-time at Suncorp Stadium, too, and the Broncos are right on top against the Titans, leading 24-0.

    39 min: The Tigers finish a terrible half on a positive note with Farah and Marshall combining to put winger Marika Koroibete in space. Koroibete then trampled Merritt to score. Curtis Sironen fails to convert from the sideline, and then half-time siren sounds. Souths 38-4.

    36 min: Inglis scoops up a dropped Tigers ball and sprints 97m to to score Souths' seventh try. Reynolds misses the difficult kick. What a first half from the Rabbitohs! Souths 38-0.

    32 min: Inglis somehow denies Robbie Farah from scoring. Superb defence to hold him up. Nothing going right for the Tigers.

    29 min: Sam Burgess picks up where his brother left off before being given a rest, crossing off a Luke pass. All too easy. Reynolds converts. Souths 34-0.

    24 min: This is really getting embarrassing for the hapless Tigers. George Burgess joins the try-scorer's list after the Tigers fail to clean up a Reynolds bomb. Reynolds raises the flags. Souths 28-0.

    22 min: The Rabbitohs continue to run riot, with centre Beau Champion scoring after a superb left-to-right long pass from Reynolds, who then bangs over the conversion from the sideline. Souths 22-0.

    17 min: Benji Marshall enters the fray replacing Aaron Woods, with Liam Fulton moving into the pack, and almost produced a try with his first pass, to Eddy Pettybourne. Promising signs.

    12 min: It's point-a-minute stuff from the Bunnies, with Greg Inglis backing up a break from Issac Luke to score between the posts. Awful defence again from the Tigers. Reynolds converts. Souths 16-0.

    9 min: Souths go in again! Bryson Goodwin busts the line from inside his 20m, finds 18-year-old debutant Dylan Walker in support on the inside and he races 30m to score his first NRL try. Reynolds adds the extras. Souths 10-0.

    7 min: Souths continue to dominate the territorial tussle, running for 62m before kicking on the last.

    3 min: First blood to Souths as winger Nathan Merritt crosses for his 11th try of the season. Merritt is now only four tries from equalling the Rabbitohs' all-time tryscoring record of 144, held by Benny Wearing. Adam Reynolds fails to convert from the sideline. Souths 4-0.

    2 min: Solid start from both teams, each completing their first set of six.

    1 min: Tigers kick-off

    Kick-off is only a few minutes away, players are running onto the field now. Can the Tigers produce the upset of the season? Or will Souths continue on their winning way? The Tigers certainly look enthusiastic enough, and they'll need to be (plus some) to roll the premiership leaders.

    Being a resident of the beautiful inner west of Sydney, I have a soft spot for the Tigers but I'll do my best to remain impartial tonight as they take on my beloved Roosters' bitter enemies!

    Good evening, welcome to our coverage of tonight's match.

    Wests Tigers have made one late change to their team, with winger David Nofoaluma to make his NRL debut in place of Matt Utai, who failed a fitness test. Nofoaluma was a member of the Tigers' champion under-20 side last year. Shaun Spence drops off the interchange bench, making way for Ben Murdoch-Masila.

    Souths also have some late changes: debutant winger Dylan Walker and Jeff Lima replace Justin Hunt and Dave Tyrell. George Burgess will start the match.

    ANZ Stadium, Sydney Olympic Park, Friday 7.35pm (AEST)
    Last meeting: Round 21 2012 - Souths 32 bt Tigers 6 at ANZ Stadium
    Head-to-head: Souths 11 Tigers 9
    Referees: Jared Maxwell, Luke Phillips
    TV: Channel 9 (live Sydney, delay Brisbane)
    TAB Sportsbet: Souths $1.08 Tigers $8.00 Draw $41.00
    FootyTab: Tigers +20.5

    Phil Mitchell writes: After six successive losses, Mick Potter has decided drastic times require drastic measures. The Tigers coach pulled the selection shock of the season on Tuesday when he dumped his highest-paid player, Benji Marshall, to the bench as the club tries to drag itself off the bottom of the table and avoid slumping to the worst losing streak in its history on Friday night. It’s a bold move by Potter but it could be the kick in the guts the struggling Marshall needs to turn his season around.

    Potter’s counterpart Michael Maguire has no such selection headaches but has been forced to make one change because of winger Andrew Everingham’s suspension. Everingham’s replacement, Dylan Walker, will be only the 21st player the Rabbitohs have used this year .

    Phil's tip: Rabbitohs by 20

    AAP writes: Wests Tigers’ fans will be hoping this one doesn’t get too ugly on the scoreboard with South Sydney capable of giving the joint venture a hiding. Tigers coach Mick Potter dumped star five-eighth Benji Marshall to the bench as they look to avoid a seventh consecutive loss. The Tigers have to play the game of their lives to stop Souths. Marshall and back-rower Adam Blair must step up and take it to the Rabbitohs or else they will get slaughtered.

    Key: The Tigers need stars Robbie Farah and Benji Marshall to ask some questions of Souths’ defence and recapture their attacking mojo.

    RABBITOHS: Greg Inglis, Nathan Merritt, Beau Champion, Bryson Goodwin, Dylan Walker, John Sutton, Adam Reynolds, George Burgess, Issac Luke, Roy Asotasi, Chris McQueen, Ben Te’o, Sam Burgess. Interchange: Nathan Peats, Jason Clark, Ben Lowe, Jeff Lima.

    TIGERS: James Tedesco, David Nofoaluma, Joel Reddy, Tim Simona, Marika Koroibete, Liam Fulton, Curtis Sironen, Aaron Woods, Robbie Farah (capt), Suaso Sue, Bodene Thompson, Adam Blair, Eddy Pettybourne. Interchange: Benji Marshall, Jack Buchanan, Ava Seumanufagai, Ben Murdoch-Masila.
