Fletcher Crowe-ing after Souths win

South Sydney captain Bryan Fletcher and his teammates spent Thursday night swapping stories with high-profile supporter Russell Crowe.

Fletcher now has another yarn he can share with the Oscar-winning actor.

It's the tale of a perfect South Sydney second half culminating in a 41-14 victory over the Melbourne Storm at Aussie Stadium - the club's second National Rugby League win of the season.

The Rabbitohs scored five second-half tries, turning a 14-14 deadlock into a one-sided drubbing to record their biggest win since returning to the competition last season - and probably their most impressive.

Winger Wise Kativerata scored a first-half hat-trick, five-eighth Owen Craigie had the Midas touch and the Rabbitohs' forward pack finished all over the Storm.

So what did Crowe say?

"Not much really," Fletcher said.

"I think it was just us being together. He was just like one of us, he just sat down and had a yarn to us and told us a few stories.

"We enlightened him on a few of our stories.

"It was nothing big, it was just a relaxing week."
