Foxsports has the grim tidings from last night’s thrashing of the Raiders:
South Sydney are one step away from a first grand final appearance in 41 years after brushing aside Canberra 38-16 in Saturday’s NRL semi-final at ANZ Stadium.
Rookie halfback Adam Reynolds was the star of the show for the Rabbitohs, scoring a try and kicking seven goals on his way to becoming only the second player in the club’s history to chalk up more than 200 points in a season.

Eric Simms was the last player to record that feat in 1970 – the year the Rabbitohs won the 19th of their 20 premierships – and they must now beat Canterbury next Saturday if they are to add to that tally.
The win was Souths’ first finals victory in 25 years.
