Greg Inglis says his reconstructed left knee felt good after his long-awaited NRL comeback, but South Sydney's poor defensive effort caused him plenty of pain.

The Anthony Seibold era at the Rabbitohs started off with a whimper after the team were comprehensively outplayed in a 32-20 loss to the NZ Warriors in Perth on Saturday.

Seibold lamented his team's low 68 per cent completion rate, while they also missed 25 tackles on the way to conceding six tries.

'It’s special how it’s worked out': Hayne to mark 200th in Eels return

  'It’s special how it’s worked out': Hayne to mark 200th in Eels return In a fortunate stroke of serendipity, Jarryd Hayne’s first game back for Parramatta will be his 200th. Given the journey he has been on since he last played for the club four years ago - a season of NFL in San Francisco, a pre-Olympics flirtation with the Fijian rugby sevens team and an ill-fated stint with the Gold Coast - there were times he thought he wouldn’t get there.However, the planets have aligned in such a way that he will celebrate the milestone in the most appropriate way: in his comeback match for the blue and golds against local rivals Penrith.

Inglis told NRL .com after the loss about the message he gave his players in a team huddle that would be just as vital in game two in Sydney when the Maroons aim to square the series. "I think everyone saw just how well the captaincy agrees with Greg," Hannay told NRL .com.

Gregory Paul Inglis (born 15 January 1987) is an Australian professional rugby league footballer who plays for the South Sydney Rabbitohs in the National Rugby League .

Inglis was solid without starring in his first NRL game back from a knee reconstruction, recording 110 run metres.

But it wasn't nearly enough to inspire the Rabbitohs to victory.

Inglis, playing at centre, said he didn't give a second thought to his knee during the match.

"You can't go into games thinking about that, otherwise it would just get your mind off what you're supposed to do out there," Inglis said.

Bulldogs dash Magpies' AFLW finals hopes

  Bulldogs dash Magpies' AFLW finals hopes The Western Bulldogs have continued their dominant AFLW season with an eight-point victory over Collingwood in Moe. Collingwood's AFLW season is all but over after the Western Bulldogs prevailed by eight points in a fiery clash in the Victorian town of Moe.The Magpies threatened a late comeback on Sunday but couldn't stop the ladder-leading Bulldogs from claiming a 7.7 (49) to 6.5 (41) victory at Ted Summerton Reserve.The result takes the Dogs four points clear of second-placed Brisbane and leaves Collingwood anchored to the bottom of the ladder with two rounds remaining.

Inglis had been due back next weekend but after a visit to his surgeon on Thursday the Rabbitohs captain is likely to delay his return from the broken thumb he "Gags hasn't done any reps all season at fullback and young Tyrell, we pulled him up two days ago and he hasn't trained with us for months.

So Inglis picked up the phone himself. He called Gagai and, largely through their relationship and ''I just wanted to be out there,'' Inglis told NRL .com as he continues his comeback . Looking back at it now, it wasn't the best idea. But the upside I could see was that I didn’t do any more damage to it.

"I know I've done all the preparation and training I can to get myself right for this round and punch out 80 (minutes).

"I pulled up fine. Just a bit of cramp coming in. But the knee, body - everything is fine."

Inglis said the team's defensive performance against NZ was unacceptable, and something that needs addressing ahead of next Saturday's clash with the Panthers.

"We're not going to win games on the back of a defensive performance like that," Inglis said.

"I know it's round one, but we've got to be better than that."

Seibold agreed, and his message to his players was blunt after the match.

"As I said to the players in there. It's black and white - you can't have 85 per cent effective contact and expect to win against any team in the competition," Seibold said.

"You can't complete at 68 per cent ... and expect to compete as well.

"Some of that's down to poor decision making or not being effective enough from a contact point of view.

"But at the end of the day, the Warriors ran harder than us and they got their body in front more aggressively than us. That's what's more disappointing to me."
