Four minutes later, Mitchell let the ball go, holding the ball-carrying arm free, and threw a low pass for Cody Walker to score his first goal

After his second try, Warren Smith said in the Fox League comment, “They’re killing them on both sides of the field” before Walker backed Alex Johnston

While the Dragons scored one try, half ended 32-4 against Souths, although that was possibly more enjoyable for Wayne Bennett and the coaching team The Rabbitohs were 20 out of 20 in a statistic that baffled Alexander

“It’s as sharp as any team has seen it at this stage of the season,” he said. “I can’t remember any team A Charity Shield game where a team looks as good as South Sydney and they’ve owned that game for the past eight years. This is their best accomplishment

“They feel confident, they look like ‘We can win the competition” It’s early morning and it’s just a test form, but boy, they look sharp ”
