Walker pulls rabbit out of a hat in Souths comeback


//

South Sydney’s Cody Walker has pulled a rabbit out of a hat to lead the hoops out of a 12-point deficit to stun a red-hot Warriors 28-14 outfit on the Sunshine Coast.

The five-eighth played out of his skin bagging a staggering four tries, two of them in the dying moments, to salvage a game that Wayne Bennett’s men had no right in winning.

Souths enforcer Sam Burgess was in the wars, going down in an awkward crusher-like tackle midway through the first half, but was instrumental in inspiring a dogged fight back with his patented heavy hitting.

The win sees the Bunnies move to second on the NRL ladder as Wayne Bennett’s rein seems to be reaping early dividends since his move down south.

Walker leads the Bunnies to victory

Walker and Damien Cook were the architects, combining all afternoon on Saturday in front of a record 11,912 crowd at Sunshine Coast Stadium.

The Warriors fought hard despite the loss of experienced halfback Blake Green before kickoff with a groin injury.

Second-gamer Chanel Harris-Tavita stepped up to guide the side well, kicking smartly and setting up a Tohu Harris try in the second half to edge the Kiwi outfit ahead 18-12.

When Sam Lisone spun his way over in the 50th minute, the Rabbitohs looked out of options.

Burgess breaks through

But a big Sam Burgess hit on David Fusitu'a brought them and the pro-South Sydney crowd to life.

Ethan Lowe found the line soon after and Walker - who had already scored twice in the first half - terrorised the left edge with two more in the final seven minutes.

He had hooker Cook to thank, the speedy No.9 proving a continuous handful and laying on two of Walker's tries.

With the scores deadlocked at 24-24, both sides had cracks at field goals without success, before Walker took matters into his own hands with a diving effort that took Wayne Bennett's men to 4-1 this season.

Warriors captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck was electric in the first half, stepping off his right foot through the guts of the defence for the game's first try.

He was hard to handle all match but will leave Queensland licking his wounds and crossing his fingers for good news on Green.
