Souths outmuscle GPS to take 2-0 record into blockbuster Brothers’ clash

Souths coach Garrick Morgan admits his side is building nicely into the season after beating GPS 34-15 to claim a second successive Hospital Cup victory.

After conceding an early try, the Magpies forwards took control of the match and scored three unanswered tries from close range to claim a 19-5 lead midway through the first half.

"We knew it was going to be physical, particularly in the first 10 minutes, but we came out of the gates hard and then evolved as the game went on,” Morgan told Rugby News.

Outside back Tye James scored two tries on either side of the halftime break to put Souths’ further in front and while Jeeps scored twice in the second half, the result was never really in doubt at Chipsy Wood Oval.

“We worked really hard to get on top of them and I thought our set piece laid the platform the for victory,” Morgan continued.
