Todd Carneys analysis with Jon Wells and Oldhams famous win over Hull KR feature in this weeks Set of Six. Emerson Jersey . Slammin Sam?Souths decision to bring home Sam Burgess and make him the NRLs highest-paid player has yet to pay dividends.The Rabbitohs were thumped in Townsville by North Queensland. Burgess got on the scoresheet late on, but the Cowboys ran out convincing 44-18 winners in a contest between the two most recent NRL champions. Sam Burgess of the Rabbitohs is tackled by Gavin Cooper and Jake Granville of the Cowboys The Rabbitohs are a shadow of the side that climbed the Australian summit in 2014, with three wins from seven earning them eighth place in the standings.Though the South Sydney slide cannot be pinned on Burgess alone, the Rabbitohs have not seen the impact they would have hoped when they lured him back from rugby union.Carney analysisCatalans have shed their usually poor away form this season to make an ideal start to the season. A 30-12 win over Saints on Thursday night was their fifth away win out of six, with Wigan in round one the only side to repel Catalans on home turf in 2016. Catalans stand-off Todd Carney will joins Jon Wells at the touchscreen to analyse another impressive victory on the road Todd Carney pulled the strings at Langtree Park as his side registered their sixth successive Super League victory to move level on points with leaders Warrington.The Dragons stand-off joined Jon Wells at the touchscreen after the game to provide a fascinating insight into the on-field decision-making that has brought the Dragons into Grand Final contention as the first half of the season comes to a close.Oldham produce the goodsOldham offered up the biggest shock for years with a mixture of players signed from the amateur game and academy graduates who had been shown the door at various clubs. Leading 24-6 at half-time, Oldham saw out a 36-22 win over Hull KR at the KC Lightstream Stadium.Rovers, one of four Super League sides to join the competition at the fifth-round stage, reached last years final but the Championship team ensured they fell at the first hurdle this season. James Webster did not hold back after his side suffered a shock loss The Roughyeds, in their first campaign back in the second tier, provided a big boost for the town that has produced former players such as Iestyn Harris, Kevin Sinfield, Paul Sculthorpe and Barrie McDermott - with Chris Bridge, Marc Sneyd, Jordan Turner and Lee Jewitt currently plying their trade.Rovers coach James Webster admitted the result was the worst he has ever experienced.It was the biggest embarrassment of my career, since before I left school, said Webster. What we dished up was an utter embarrassment.Challenge Cup fifth roundThere was another shock later on Saturday afternoon as Kingstone Press League 1 side Toulouse Olympique XIII edged past Championship leaders Leigh Centurions 10-8 at Stade des Minimes.The French side have now won all six of their matches on their return to British rugby league, Highlights of Batley Bulldogs 28-10 victory over Featherstone Rovers Batley Bulldogs will join Oldham and Toulouse in the next round after beating Championship rivals Featherstone Rovers 28-10 at Mount Pleasant.Elsewhere in the Challenge Cup, Salford produced a solid display to record a 50-14 victory over part-timers Hunslet at the South Leeds Stadium.Fellow Super League side Widnes ran in 12 tries against unbeaten League One leaders Rochdale, in a 62-6 victory at Spotland as they booked their place in the sixth-round draw.Scrum collapseLast season Stevo had one of his trademark rants, with scrums on his agenda.This may sound strange coming from a battered, bald old-style hooker, said the Sky Sports pundit, But I think it is time to revolutionise the game of rugby league by getting rid of the scrum. They are a total farce! Leeds Rhinos and North Queensland Cowboys in a scrum during the World Club Series match, 2016 The debate around the scrum has long raged on, and last weekend it became a talking point once again when Paramatta surprised Manly in the NRL by competing in a scrum.If more teams compete in the scrums, there is a chance that we could see a resurgence in the old set piece. If not, there needs to be consideration about the scrums place in the game.So long, SollyAnother name returning to Australian shores is that of Super League general manager Blake Solly, who this week announced he would be joining up with the Rabbitohs.Solly began his career with the RFL seven years ago, but has opted to return to his home country.The decision to leave was extremely difficult but this is a fantastic opportunity to join one of the best clubs in rugby league, said Solly. South Sydney Rabbitohs are a powerhouse on and off the field, the most successful club in NRL history with a passionate fan base and extremely strong board. Blake Solly joins the Rabbitohs next month The competition is in great shape, and in a strong position to grow quickly in the coming years. However, the time is right to return with my family to Australia after over 11 years in the United Kingdom.With Solly joining the Rabbitohs on 17 May, the search for his replacement has begun immediately.

They were giving me a chance to see the puck all the time. That was key.And they played very well on the rebounds, he added. The Ds and forwards played very well in front of me.Varlamov has three straight wins against Chicago and has won four of his last five games against the Blackhawks. In the four wins, hes allowed just five goals.(Varlamov) had plenty of work out there, Colorado coach Patrick Roy said. If we want to have a chance to get back in the playoff picture, its going to start from him.MacKinnon, who won the Calder Trophy last season as the NHLs rookie of the year, scored 53 seconds into the game with just his second goal in his last 22 games. He had 24 goals and 39 assists in 2013-14 as an 18-year-old, but has just seven goals and 17 assists this season.We pressed early, MacKinnon said. Maybe we got a couple of shots that werent really quality shots, but thats OK.Corey Crawford finished with 22 saves for the Blackhawks, who had a season high in shots and dominated the pace as the game progressed. However, Chicago was blanked for the third time this season.The Blackhawks have given up the first goal in five straight games, and they admit poor starts have become an issue.Just a slow start, a couple of chances against and its in the back of the net, Chicago forward Patrick Sharp said. Its been a couple of games weve done that and we need to fix it quickly.After defenceman Johnny Oduya fell down, John Mitchell sent MacKinnon in alone andd he opened the scoring on a rising shot.

Weve got to make sure than cant happen.Colorado made it 2-0 just 24 seconds later as MacKinnon got past Niklas Hjalmarsson and broke in alone on Crawford again. He skated to edge of the crease and slipped a short pass to Talbot, who buried a shot from only a few feet out.The Blackhawks picked up their pace midway through the period and outshot the Avalanche 17-11 for the period.Chicago dictated the play for most of the scoreless second, outshooting Colorado 20-5, but the Blackhawks had limited close-in, screened and rebound attempts.Chicagos best chance came 5:40 into the period during a power play when Varlamov stopped Bryan Bickell on a rebound of Brad Richards shot from the blue line.Chicagos Brandon Saad hit the post with a shot 10 seconds into the third. The Blackhawks had the puck for most of the period, but Varlamov continued to stop initial shots and Avalanche cleared loose pucks.The third period, we put everything at the net, including bodies, which we didnt do a good job of the first 40 minutes, Quenneville said. But he made a couple of big saves in the third period with traffic.Saad poked a rebound under Varlamov with 2:17 left in the third, but the goal was disallowed because the whistle had blown.NOTES: Blackhawks F Kris Versteeg missed his second game with a left hand injury thats expected to keep him out a month.
