National Rugby League: Late field goal gives Souths the win
SYDNEY (AP) Adam Reynolds kicked a late field goal to give South Sydney a 21-20 win over the North Queensland Cowboys, the Rabbitohs’ eighth National Rugby League win in a row.
It is South Sydney’s longest winning streak since 1989 and kept the Rabbitohs within two points of leading St. George Illawarra.
In the other Sunday match, tries to A.J. Brimson and Anthony Don in the final 20 minutes helped the Gold Coast Titans beat the Wests Tigers 30-12.
Anthony Milford’s 72nd-minute try gave the Brisbane Broncos a 26-22 win over the Canberra Raiders and Canterbury beat Newcastle 36-16.
Melbourne skipper Cameron Smith booted a last-minute 40-meter field goal to give the Storm a 9-8 win over the Sydney Roosters, moving the defending champions into third place.
St. George Illawarra ensured it stayed in first place with a 20-18 win over Parramatta. Former San Francisico 49ers running back Jarry Hayne scored one of the Eels’ tries in a losing effort.
