Why Rabbitohs rookie Taaffe is more South Sydney than Reynolds

On Souths’ side, plenty of attention will be on rookie fullback Blake Taaffe.

Enter Taaffe.

As Adam Pengilly writes, the rookie was born with red and green nappies waiting for him.

The countdown is on!

Tonight will be about Nathan Cleary, in some way

Win, lose or draw, the post game story will feature discussion about Nathan Cleary’s performance.

Cleary, at the age of 23, is arguably the game’s biggest star.

This is how the Clive Churchill Medal favourite deals with the pressure that comes with the job.
