Rabbitohs lock Cameron Murray set up the opening three tries, with Lachlan Illias, Damien Cook and Tevita Tatola all crossing.

“He’s run for 75 metres, made a bunch of tackles and now has a third, yes a third, try assist,” Warren Smith said on Fox League after 17 minutes.

The Warriors have the second-worst defence in the competition and it showed early as they failed stop halfback Lachlan Ilias from close range.

Murray passed to Ilias who stepped off his right foot and went through a yawning gap to score in the fourth minute.

“That was poor play from the Warriors, they got caught flat footed and Ilias couldn’t believe his luck,” Steve Roach said on Fox League.

Murray then made a break down the middle and offloaded to hooker Cook who showed some nice footwork to score in the 10th minute.

The Souths captain made it three assists when he broke a few tackles close to the line before offloading for Tatola to score.

“That was a little bit too easy. I said they were brittle, well maybe scratch that, they’re beyond brittle, they’re Swiss cheese, there’s not much defence from the Warriors,” Smith said.

Next it was Keaon Koloamatangi who broke through some more soft defence to score from close range in the 22nd minute.

The Warriors pulled one back through Edward Kosi but the Rabbitohs were soon back at it when Latrell Mitchell burst through several tackles to score under the posts.

“You can’t put him down when he gets a chance winds up from that sort of range,” Warren Smith said after Mitchell charged over from almost 20 metres out.

Mitchell then turned provider for winger Alex Johnston who joined NRL legends Matt Sing and Hazem El Masri on 159 career tries.

MATCH PREVIEW

The Rabbitohs are looking to reignite their finals charge against the Warriors on Saturday afternoon, after their four-game winning run ended in golden point last week.

Conversely, the Warriors have won just one of their past 11 games and are looking to salvage what they can from another season where they won’t play finals.

The Bunnies will hand 25-year-old Izaac Thompson his debut after the winger forced his way into the side by scoring 20 tries in 16 reserve grade games this season.

Thompson took a four-year break from rugby league between 2017 and 2021 and his numbers in NSW Cup this season has been nothing short of exceptional, also averaging almost 150 running metres per game.

Jaxson Paulo moves into the centres with Thompson on the wing and Taane Milne drops to 18th man.

The Warriors have promoted Jackson Frei onto the bench as Eliesa Katoa drops out and Adam Pompey moves to 18th man.
