South Sydney super signing Greg Inglis and gun Rabbitohs Sam Burgess, Issac Luke and Luke Stuart have today been named in one of the club’s strongest line-ups on paper in years for their 2011 Telstra Premiership opener against the Roosters next Friday.

Rabbitohs coach John Lang has taken the unusual step of naming his side over a week before kick-off, with the talented line-up sure to have fans excited about the clash between the fierce eastern suburbs rivals, which will open the 2011 season at the SFS.

With only Michael Crocker and Jason Clark unavailable to play in round one due to injury, Lang will be fielding close to his best possible team, however it will also be the first time Inglis, Luke, Burgess and Stuart have played a match together.

All four missed the three trial games – of which Souths only won one match against NSW Cup team Newtown – because they were recovering from surgery for a variety of injuries. Continue reading

The Judiciary – Fallout

NEWCASTLE five-eighth Ben Rogers will miss two games after he was found guilty of a grade one dangerous throw charge at the NRL judiciary tonight. Rogers would have been given a two-week suspension even with the guilty plea so decided to fight the charge, arising from an incident in the 63rd minute of the Knights’ 23-6 loss to the Wests Tigers at EnergyAustralia Stadium on Friday night. The No.6 will now miss the round 13 trip to Penrith and the round 14 visit by the Warriors as the Knights have the bye this weekend.

South Sydney fullback Rhys Wesser has entered the early guilty plea to a high tackle charge and will escape suspension.

There were no charges out of Monday night’s 31-16 win by Penrith over Canterbury.

Knight’s Rogers facing 2 weeks

Newcastle Knights five-eighth Ben Rogers is facing two weeks on the sidelines after being charged by the NRL match review committee for a grade one dangerous throw. The incident happened in the 63rd minute of the Knights’ loss to the Wests Tigers on Friday night, and thanks to 72 carry-over points, Rogers will cop two weeks if he takes the early guilty plea. If he fights the charge and loses, he will also miss two matches. South Sydney fullback Rhys Wesser is the only other player to have been charged from the weekend’s action so far, but he will escape suspension.
Wesser was slapped with a grade-one careless high tackle from the third minute of the Rabbitohs’ loss to the Warriors, but due to his clean record he won’t miss a week whether he fights the charge or not.
