Wayne Bennett bemoans South Sydney Rabbitohs’ slide

Wayne Bennett concedes he’ll return to Brisbane for the NRL grudge match of the year with South Sydney’s title hopes on life support.

While the Rabbitohs are assured of September football courtesy of their best start to a campaign in 30 years, seven defeats in 10 games have sent Bennett’s early-season pacesetters tumbling out of the top four for the first time.

“I’ve just told them in there it’s not terminal yet, but it’s getting close,” Bennett said after Souths failed to fire a shot in a sobering 14-6 loss to resurgent Canterbury.

“Look, you can’t win the competition if you’re not playing top football and our football’s nothing special at the moment,” Bennett said.
