Greg Inglis opened the NRL season
in magnificent style last night, scoring
a hat-trick of tries to inspire South
Sydney to a 28-8 win over reigning
premiers the Sydney Roosters at ANZ
For the second successive season the
Rabbitohs drew first blood against
their bitter rivals in round one and they
were worthy winners against a Roosters
outfit who showed only flickers of the
attacking prowess that served them so
well last season.
Souths showed great intent in the
opening exchanges but found themselves
trailing against the run of play when
Adam Reynolds kick was charged
down and Daniel Tupou punted the ball
e giant winger then won the footrace
against the diminutive halfback and was
tackled without the ball by Reynolds
when he looked to certain to score only
for Michael Jennings to pounce on the
loose ball and touch down.
e try saved Reynolds from 10
minutes in the sin bin and the NSW
City representative played a key role
in getting his sides back on level terms
when his pass found the outstanding
Chris McQueen who found Inglis.
With five Roosters players hanging
off him the Queensland superstar
showed amazing power to
barge his way over the line
finishing with a one-handed
defensive play from Trent
Robinson s side kept them in
the game and with the scores
level at 6-6 at half-time.
e second stanza saw the
Roosters start the stronger,
but they were left to rue
some bad errors with Dylan
Napa letting Souths off the
hook when he dropped the
ball just in front of the posts
early in the tackle count.
Buoyed by that let off
Souths regrouped and Inglis
crossed for his second when
Ben Teo s pass was popped
up into his hands by John
Sutton and the fullback
Two penalties from
Reynolds extended the
Rabbitohs advantage and
some more dogged defence
from the premiers kept the
home side at bay.
Four minutes from time
that resistance was finally cracked when
Bryson Goodwin hauled in Sutton s
kick, before Inglis completed his treble
in the final minute.
Reynolds was perfect with the
boot kicking six goals in front of a
disappointing crowd of 27, 282.
Teo was put on report for a shoulder
charge on Sonny Bill Williams in the
of the Otago Daily Times

Ross Taylor capped a remarkable summer
of international batting by being named New
Zealand s cricketer of the year last night.
To make it a night of high personal
achievement,Taylor also won the test and ODI
player of the year awards and the Redpath
Cup as leading first-class batsman last night.
Taylor scored 217 not out, 129 and 131 in
successive tests against the West Indies in
December, becoming only the second New
Zealander after Mark Burgess (from 1969-72)
to complete that hat-trick.
He hit 539 test runs at a whopping average
of 134.75 in four tests against the West Indies
and India, and made 343 ODI runs in five
innings against India at 85.75, including two
Taylor s test average stands at 46.94, the best
by any New Zealander to have had 20 or more
innings, and only Martin Crowe (17) and John
Wright (12) have more test centuries than
Taylor also won the Sir Richard Hadlee
medal last season --- those awards were also
acknowledged last night after a date change in
the time of the ceremony --- and, turning 30
tomorrow, is in the prime of his career.
His only serious challenger for the Hadlee
medal was national skipper Brendon
McCullum, who hit a double century then
New Zealand s first triple ton, 302, in the two
tests against India. However Taylor s consistent
form through the home international season
carried the day.
Suzie Bates won the New Zealand s women s
player of the year, also for the second time,
while seamer Tim Southee was named
first-class bowler of the year and Mitchell
McClenaghan the T20 player of the year.
A raft of former New Zealand players, men
and women, received historic caps for their
achievements last night. --- APNZ
