However, the Rabbitohs clawed their way back into the first half.

But, it was a brilliant solo effort on the 20th minute mark from Walker that had Souths fans on their feet.

Walker received the ball 35m out from the Panthers' line before he straightened up and put a huge fend on Nathan Cleary.

He then burst through the line, before side-stepping an opponent and charging under the posts.

Fans couldn't believe the incredible solo effort and also the brutal fend on Cleary.
