South Sydney move back into NRL top eight

6:59 am on 30 April 2012

The South Sydney rugby league side have moved back into the NRL top eight with a 20-16 win against North Queensland in Sydney.

Daylight saving might have ended a month ago but the Cowboys looked like they were still an hour behind at the kick-off, allowing the Rabbitohs to surge to an early 20-0 lead that proved just enough.

The Cowboys scored three second-half tries, including a double to Ashley Graham, to give themselves a chance of a dramatic comeback, but South Sydney's start proved far too big.
