Adam Reynolds and Issac Luke are set to escape with one-game bans after being charged in the wake of South Sydney’s win against the Bulldogs.

The Rabbitohs duo were both pinged with grade one charges after the 21-14 victory. But they are set to miss just next Thursday’s game against the Roosters, where South Sydney are 2.80 to win the match, and will be able to return for week one of the finals.

Luke was hit with a dangerous contact charge after lashing out at hooker Michael Ennis with his feet, while Reynolds faces a grade one charge for a dangerous throw on playmaker Moses Mbye.

It’s his whole body – he throws himself around. He does it for his team-mates, which is great to have.

The Rabbitohs will need to check on several other players in the wake of the win over Canterbury. Second rower Chris McQueen was forced off with a poked eye, while Greg Inglis and Sam Burgess both suffered knocks to their lower body.

Burgess scored two tries at ANZ Stadium as South Sydney came from behind to win. His first levelled things up just before the half-hour mark, after Mitch Brown had given the Bulldogs an early lead. Ennis put Canterbury back in front with a 33rd-minute try and the Bulldogs led by six points at the interval.

Burgess grabbed his second try of the night six minutes into the second half and Lote Tuqiri scored what proved the match-winner with seven minutes left.

Coach Michael Maguire was pleased with Burgess’ commitment, after he spent time in the sheds during the second half with a knock to his left knee, saying: “It’s his whole body – he throws himself around. He does it for his team-mates, which is great to have.”

South Sydney are 1.91 with a six-point start against Sydney Roosters.
