Bunnies pump Tigers as injury toll worsens


//

South Sydney's horror injury toll has continued after losing halfback Adam Reynolds to a possible fractured leg in their 32-16 NRL win over the Wests Tigers.

Reynolds left ANZ Stadium on crutches on Saturday night after his leg became caught under a teammate in the first half, cruelling his shot at a State of Origin recall.

It is believed the Rabbitohs' star has been immediately booked in for X-rays on Sunday morning amid fears of a fractured fibula.

He joins a crowded casualty ward that includes Alex Johnston, Kyle Turner, Braidon Burns and Adam Doueihi.

With another five players in contention for Origin, the club will struggle to name a 17 for next week's clash with Parramatta.

Reynolds' blow took the gloss off a comfortable victory over the Tigers that ensured Wayne Bennett's side remained atop the NRL ladder.

Their seventh- straight victory means the Rabbitohs have enjoyed their best start since also starting 10-1 in 1989, when they claimed the minor premiership.

Damien Cook was easily best on ground, scoring a try and setting up three others in another masterful individual performance for the 18,195 ANZ Stadium crowd.

The Blues' hooker also put in defensively with a game-high 47 tackles.

The hosts blasted the visitors off the park early, courtesy of tries to Cameron Murray and Reynolds for a 14-0 lead by the 16-minute mark.

The Tigers hit back quickly through Corey Thompson and Esan Marsters, and their chances of a comeback skyrocketed when Reynolds exited.

However, the Rabbitohs regained momentum with Cook's try moments before halftime, before he set up Liam Knight soon after the break.

Benji Marshall pulled one back with a solo try in the 49th minute, but that was as close as the Tigers could get with Murray grabbing his second to seal the win.

Thompson was arguably the Tigers' best, breaking a game-high 10 tackles on his way to 167 metres, but received little support from his forwards.

Despite the loss, the Tigers are likely to stay in the top eight after the weekend.
