Late Souths comeback not enough to overcome Penrith

PENRITH has moved into the top eight of the NRL after a 28-26 win over South Sydney last night.

The Rabbitohs, missing injured Origin star Adam Reynolds, were the first to score through a Kyle Turner try, but the Panthers went to the break 10-8 up after tries to Dallin Watene-Zelezniak and Josh Mansour.

Greg Inglis crossed to put the Rabbitohs ahead 14-10 shortly after the break but Penrith then ran in three tries in 12minutes.

Sam Burgess scored two late tries for Souths to set up a grandstand finish but a last-ditch attack by the Rabbitohs failed to produce points.

Penrith moved to seventh on the ladder with seven wins, while the Rabbitohs remain a lowly 13th.
