Penrith halfback Nathan Cleary overcame an infection that required a
hospital visit to help his side down an error-prone South Sydney 20-12
in the National Rugby League.
After an impressive three-game stint, Souths fullback Latrell
Mitchell had an off night, marked by four handling errors and a late
visit to the sin-bin.
He wasn’t alone though as his team coughed up plenty of ball, making
12 errors and conceding eight penalties as well as badly losing the
contest in the middle of the field.
Penrith had enough chances to win by plenty more but let a few chances go begging.
Penrith are top of the ladder while Souths are eighth.
