Rampant Rabbitohs smash Tigers

6:19 pm on 16 May 2010

South Sydney have wound back the clock for the NRL's heritage round, returning to the scene of some of their most famous victories to smash a woeful Wests Tigers 50-10 at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

The rampant Rabbitohs scored nine tries to two in a dominant display against an out-enthused Tigers side, and an out-of-sorts Benji Marshall, that never looked in the match.

In front of more than 30,000 fans mercurial Souths five-eighth John Sutton sent a last-minute message to NSW selectors, displaying all of his sublime talents in wreaking havoc on the Tigers' defence all afternoon.

Winger Nathan Merritt bagged a hat-trick of tries and Beau Champion a double, while Issac Luke booted seven from nine.

The Tigers have now lost four straight games.
