NRL 2021: South Sydney Rabbitohs Vs Brisbane Broncos, 40m field goal, two points, Adam Reynolds, history, Eric Simms

South Sydney’s Adam Reynolds has become the first player since the 1970 Grand Final to kick a two-point field goal, launching a 40m strike just before halftime against the Broncos.
The Rabbitohs ended up running away with a 35-6 win in the round five clash but it was just before the break that Reynolds doubled up with the two-point dagger.
