Rabbitohs Best Giants in Pitching Duel
South Sydney used a superb performance from starting pitcher Wally Finbow to down the Parramatta Giants, 2-1. Tony Lawes converted his 2nd save in 3 tries. The Rabbitohs own a robust 37-21 mark.

South Sydney used the timely hitting of Kevin Baird to seize the win. The second baseman stroked a run-scoring single in the top of the fifth inning to put the Rabbitohs on top, 2-1. It was his only hit in 4 at-bats, but it was a game-changer.

"There was no wiggle room in this one," said Finbow.
