South Sydney’s NRL season has hit its lowest ebb, flogged 32-12 by St George Illawarra with rookie halfback Lachlan Ilias hooked during a first-half mauling in Wollongong.

In easily their worst performances of the year, the Rabbitohs trailed 32-0 at half-time with Ilias benched by coach Jason Demetriou after just 28 minutes.

The first-half effort marked the Dragons’ best opening 40 minutes since April 2001, with Ben Hunt superb in attack and Zac Lomax far improved on last week’s loss to North Queensland.

Mikaele Ravalawa bagged a double on the right wing, while Talatau Amone had easily his best game in first grade.
