From the left touchline he's nailed it. That's full-time.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 24 - 10 Dragons
79min

Try: Rabbitohs
Scored by Greg Inglis. Kick to come.

That's not Dufty I'm sorry, it's Zac Lomax. Inglis has the try, he flirted with the sideline but dives over and the celebration starts.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 22 - 10 Dragons
79min

South Sydney gain 56m on the set. Damien Cook puts a grubber in from the short side, it goes 20m. Dufty knocks-on and Greg Inglis might have a try in the corner. The play is being reviewed by the Bunker.

78min

The Dragons look dangerous, gain 68m on the set. Hunt kicks towards Hymel Hunt on tackle five. Hymel takes it cleanly.

78min

Conversion: Dragons
Kicked by Gareth Widdop.

Quickly converts from near the right touchline.

77min

Try: Dragons
Scored by Tyson Frizell. Kick to come.

The Dragons gather a short kickoff. They make their way up to the red zone. PENALTY Dragons. That's from beside the posts. They play on. McInnes passes one out to Frizell and he crashes over Tatola for a try.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 18 - 8 Dragons
76min

Conversion: Rabbitohs
Attempted by Adam Reynolds.

He hits the post again from the touchline. Not his best kicking day, but he's having a laugh. Jack de Belin has gone up the tunnel with an injury. Possibly a rib injury. Zac Lomax enters the field for his debut.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 18 - 4 Dragons
75min

Try: Rabbitohs
Scored by Campbell Graham. Kick to come.

On tackle three a grubber kick from Reynolds is put towards the wing of Campbell Graham. Widdop's foot deflects the ball towards Graham and it's a match sealing try.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 18 - 4 Dragons
74min

Penalty Goal: Rabbitohs
Attempted by Adam Reynolds.

From 15m to the left and 15m meters out, he hits the upright and it bounces straight back to him. Sensational. Play on.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 14 - 4 Dragons
73min

The Rabbitohs go on the counter attack immediately. They gain 60m through Sam Burgess, Damien Cook and Cody Walker. PENALTY Rabbitohs. Not a professional foul, James Graham is on the ground after a heavy hit.

71min

The Dragons were close to making a scoring play, but on the last tackle Hunt knocks-on.

70min

Dragons start their set 65 meters out.

70min

PENALTY Dragons. Hand in the ruck.

70min

Conversion: Dragons
Attempted by Gareth Widdop.

Misses from close to the right touchline.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 14 - 4 Dragons
69min

Try: Dragons
Scored by Tyson Frizell. Kick to come.

Well... it's come against the run of play. The Rabbitohs were attacking the tryline, Reynolds faked a kick and passed to Sam Burgess. The pass went behind Burgess, he deflected the ball, Frizell pounced and sprinted 85m to score. Hymel Hunt came close to running him down, but not close enough.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 14 - 4 Dragons
68min

An offload from the Dragons goes wrong. It's in the hands of George Burgess.

67min

The Rabbitohs get a full set inside the Dragons' half. A grubber from Adam Reynolds on fifth is stopped a few meters before the tryline. Dragons come away.

66min

McInnes gets the Rabbitohs backpedaling. On the next play Hunt knocks-on.

65min

Walker is trying hard, possibly too hard. He's come up with lots of errors in the second half when the Rabbitohs looked like scoring. This time he passes the football into touch. Ben Hunt has a cork.

64min

PENALTY South Sydney. James Graham concedes it in front of the posts. South Sydney play on, not quick.

63min

Ben Hunt is on his haunches. Knock-on from the Dragons at the play the ball, 10m away from their line. Hunt is still being troubled by an injury from earlier in the match. He's staying on the field.

62min

South Sydney are going sideline to sideline towards the end of their sets. It's nearly too much for the Dragons to handle. Regardless, they get the ball back.

61min

Dragons make it to halfway. Hunt kicks high and long, no pressure on the catcher and hardly any chase to the football.

60min

Sutton makes great meters to get the Rabbitohs into the Dragons' half. Then Reynolds kicks long and high. Dragons take the ball, they are bunched and must be tired.

59min

Penalty Goal: Rabbitohs
Kicked by Adam Reynolds.

This is difficult for the Dragons to come back from.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 14 - 0 Dragons
58min

PENALTY Rabbitohs. McInnes holds down Sam Burgess for too long. This is 10m out and directly in front of the posts. South Sydney want a penalty goal.

57min

PENALTY Rabbitohs. That gets them inside the Dragons half.

56min

The Dragons are going through Ben Hunt for creativity, it's not working. He fails to spark his team on tackle four and five. They ran on the last again. Lafai looses the ball and Reynolds gathers. Reynolds knocked the football on there, but missed by the officials.

55min

He gets between Dragons players and all most intercepts the football. Knock-on.

54min

Rabbitohs run on tackle five and Jason Clark has the ball. He passes for Crichton who knocks-on.

53min

De Belin offloads and Murray pounces on the loose ball.

53min

Rabbitohs again don't complete their set. The tempo is fast from both teams. Rabbtiohs made it within 20m of the Dragons line when possession changed.

52min

Unforced error. On the last tackle the Dragons run again, from 25m out. A tap to Macdonald has gone forward.

51min

South Sydney are close to breaking down the Dragons again. Walker again with the mistake as he could find Gagai with a pass. Lafai fields it.

50min

Dragons put in an average set and it's back to the Rabbitohs.

49min

Crichton makes a line break from inside his own half. He kicks before getting run down, Johnston is the only chaser but three Dragons players rally to get the ball. Dufty is the player there first. Not a smart move to kick from Crichton.

48min

Cameron McInnes gets the Dragons moving quickly through the middle of the field. Frizell making some good runs. They are still shot for creativity. Macdonald is held on the last tackle.

47min

Walker has Ben Hunt pulling on his jersey from behind. He tries to kick and knocks-on.

46min

The Dragons have had 35 tackles inside the Rabbitohs 20m zone, for no points.

45min

Hunt decides to run on the last tackle, it surprises the defence but doesn't create space. Latimore knocks-on.

44min

Rabbitohs send it deep into the Dragons half. More easy meters for them.

43min

Ben Hunt is playing on. Nothing to like from that Dragons set. Didn't look dangerous. Hunt puts a bad kick in, taken by Sam Burgess.

42min

PENALTY Dragons. Cody Walker offloaded, it was knocked-on and a Rabbitoh held a Dragon from picking up the ball. Kurt Mann goes off for a HIA after a hit with Sam Burgess. Ben Hunt is in noticeable pain.

41min

The Dragons use their first set to pin Hymel Hunt three meters from his own line.

40min

Sam Burgess is back on the field. He passed the HIA.

40min

Rabbitohs to kickoff the second half. Here we go.

40min

That's half-time. Entertaining so far. The Dragons need to show in the second half they can put their frustration aside and play great football.

39min

Dufty comes within centimeters of a line break in his own half. Otherwise the Dragons make plenty of meters but Johnston rises above everyone to make a clean catch of a tackle five kick.

38min

Potential try for the Rabbitohs. On field referee has no try. Reynolds kicks high and across field on the last, it comes down at the tryline. Inglis appears to knock-on and possession goes to the Dragons. This was looked at 10 times.

38min

Sam Burgess is off.

38min

Play is stopped for Sam Burgess to leave the field for a head injury assessment. He doesn't want to leave.

38min

The Dragons decided to run on tackle five, Hunt breaks a couple of tackles but Widdop is accounted for. He losses it while offloading.

37min

Nene Macdonald takes his toughest catch of the day after Reynolds sent the ball to the clouds.

37min

Play is stopped after Ah Mau clips Sam Burgess high. No penalty, play on.

36min

Dufty goes close to scoring. If he decides to pass, they were more likely to score. On the next tackle Widdop kicks low for the in-goal and Frizell all most scores a try, but the ball was too far gone over the dead ball line.

35min

That's Campbell Graham.

35min

Widdop tests Graham with a high kick on the last. Graham takes it comfortably on his 10m line.

34min

Easy meters for the Rabbitohs. On tackle three Reynolds attempts a 40/20. Nightingale easily stops it.

32min

Penalty Goal: Rabbitohs
Kicked by Adam Reynolds.

From slightly left of the posts, he converts.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 12 - 0 Dragons
31min

PENALTY Rabbitohs. Jeremy Latimore is offside.

31min

South Sydney start their set 30m out from the Dragons line.

30min

PENALTY Rabbitohs. Ben Hunt penalised in the ruck.

29min

The Rabbitohs raced off their line to force this error. Ben Hunt to keep the football alive had to tap it on, which he did but it was too difficult for Macdonald to take.

28min

Vaughan all most carries four players over the tryline. The Dragons lost momentum towards the end of the set. Hunt lands another kick in-goal and gives the Dragons another set.

27min

PENALTY Dragons.

27min

On the first hit-up he's dropped the ball. Dragons immediately on the attack.

26min

Ah Mau had the dummy half duties after McInnes made a run. He passes the ball forward.

24min

The Dragons get half a set to attack from close range, following the dropout. Tim Lafai goes close as he fended off one and beat another. Cook bats a Widdop grubber dead for another goal line dropout, otherwise Paul Vaughan scores.

23min

Dragons gain 60m and Hunt runs towards the sideline, the short side, and kicks in-field for Widdop. Widdop tackles Johnston in-goal.

22min

Damien Cook found space behind the forwards on fourth tackle. On fifth Adam Reynolds had a kick from 20m out that is a chip straight to Widdop. Poor finish.

21min

Nightingale was tackled as soon as he received the pass. Dragons make it to the Rabbitohs 40m line, but Widdop's last tackle kick comes down on the 20m line and is fielded by Graham.

20min

Dragons severely test in defence. They were about to break again. John Sutton passes from dummy half and Nightingale receives the pass on the full. PENALTY Dragons. Sutton holds the tackled player down too long.

19min

PENALTY Rabbitohs. McInnes drifts away from the posts and sends Hunt underneath him. It is a shepherd though, Hunt wouldn't have scored anyway.

18min

Play is stopped for Damien Cook to put his boot back on. It takes the best part of a minute and we're back underway.

18min

Hunt attempts a grubber kick 10m from the tryline, it's played at and the Dragons regather. Six more.

17min

George and Tom Burgess provide damaging runs. Walker then throws a pass that finds the grass behind his players. Aitken pounces and is tackled.

16min

PENALTY Rabbitohs. Against Cameron McInnes.

15min

Dragons tried to free up Aitken and Nightingale for a try on fourth tackle. Nightingale is easily accounted for by Hunt. Nightingale losses the ball getting up.

14min

Reynolds is forced to kick long, the high kick is misjudged by Matt Dufty and it bounces. It bounces dead in-goal. Seven tackle set coming for the Dragons.

13min

The Dragons were clunky in attack. Only looked like scoring from a hit-up. The fifth tackle kick from Hunt goes safely into Campbell Graham's hands, in the field of play.

12min

PENALTY Dragons. Sam Burgess offside at marker.

11min

PENALTY Dragons. Adam Reynolds held down a tackled player too long.

10min

The catch on the kickoff was tough, the breeze sent the ball away from Walker and he knocked-on.

9min

Conversion: Rabbitohs
Kicked by Adam Reynolds.

Much better from Reynolds.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 10 - 0 Dragons
7min

Try: Rabbitohs
Scored by Angus Crichton. Kick to come.

Angus Crichton comes up with two amazing plays. He gets the Rabbitohs on a roll with a late offload at halfway. A few tackles later, he takes an angle towards the posts on a hit-up that found a gap and brushed a few players to score.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 8 - 0 Dragons
6min

Only 29m for the Dragons on their set. Hunt kicks long and finds the winger on his 20m line, with plenty of space to run.

5min

Excellent set from South Sydney. They're making gaining meters look easy, straight up the middle. Tim Lafai fields an Adam Reynolds bomb on his 10m line.

4min

Conversion: Rabbitohs
Attempted by Adam Reynolds.

From the left touchline he hooked it too far, the kick looked awful.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 4 - 0 Dragons
3min

Try: Rabbitohs
Scored by Hymel Hunt. Kick to come.

A simple play, Walker passes out the back on the left side of the field. John Sutton receives it, in the centre position, and taps it on to Hunt who scores in the corner. Sutton's touch creates the space for the try.

Rabbitohs lead Rabbitohs 4 - 0 Dragons
2min

Rabbitohs gain possession and play straight away. Sam Burgess has been held up in the in-goal.

1min

There's 58m on the first set. Simple hitups through the middle of the field got them those meters. Nene McDonald spills the ball on the kick return.

Both teams are on the field. Dragons kickoff.

Welcome to this round 10 NRL fixture between the South Sydney Rabbitohs and the St George Illawarra Dragons at ANZ Stadium. Conditions are excellent for football. Lots of players here are realistic chances to be selected for State of Origin and they should be at least near their best today. Last but not least, we have another installment of Sam Burgess v James Graham. Plenty to keep an eye on today, kickoff is 2pm.
