North Queensland Flogged by Rabbitohs and Refs
The Souths Sydney Rabbitohs continued their impressive run of late with an emphatic 32-4 win over the North Queensland Cowboys. Of most interest to myself during the game was the behavior of the refs. It seems that they took the role to obtain a personal get-square for Jonathon Thurston's behavior last weekend, and subsequent clearance for the tribunal. They allowed him to be pummeled after the kick on numerous occasions and it seemed that many 50-50 calls certainly went against the Cowboys. But even with all that, Souths were simply impressive as their big pack, again run roughshod over the opposition and gave Chris Sandow and John Sutton the room to showcase their skills.
