Victory Over Tigers Takes South Sydney to 36-11
It was a fun time at Redfern Oval, where the Balmain Tigers and South Sydney Rabbitohs tangled.

Ted Courtier was instrumental in his team's 6-5 triumph over the Balmain Tigers. The first baseman was 2-4 with 2 home runs. He drove in 3 runs and scored twice for the South Sydney Rabbitohs. The Rabbitohs bumped their record to 36-11 with this latest triumph.

Courtier had a game-changing home run in the bottom of the eighth. On a full count fastball from Brad Hanson, he banged a 2-run home run to right, giving the Rabbitohs a 6-5 lead. It was the 16th home run of the year for Courtier.

"We cashed in when we had the chance," said South Sydney manager Steve Meyers.
