Lang explains it to Rabbitohs - just win

Souths coach John Lang likes to keep things simple.

Not one for smoke and mirrors, Lang said all Souths needed to do was win their matches.

"A kid of grade two can work out the points table ... you've got to win games." Lang said.

"We may well have to win three but there's no point dwelling on that.

"To be perfectly honest I'm not even worried about it, we've got three games to go and we want to win them all and we start next Friday night." The Rabbitohs, who are in ninth position, face possibly the toughest run of the contenders, taking on the fourth-placed Panthers at CUA Stadium, then the Eels, who are currently 10th, and finally the table-topping Dragons.

Lang lamented his side's lack of intensity against the Storm given their must-win status.

With such a short turnaround he said the side needed to start with a bang against Penrith.

"We've got to find something from within to come out firing on Friday night.

"We need to find that energy, that energy right from the start.

"We looked flat in that first half so hopefully we can find it between now and then." Regular Souths centre Beau Champion was a late withdrawal from the AAMI Park match after having fluid from his knee drained on Thursday, which was a side-effect from a corked thigh.

Dylan Farrell, who scored a hat-trick in his debut against Wests Tigers last round, impressed Lang with his work to contain Test centre Greg Inglis and the coach said he may keep his position.

"Beau's a good possibility but I thought young Dylan Farrell was one of our best players today," Lang said.
