The 14-12 victory for the Bunnies means the man’s $5000 wager will come back to the Wellington bloke 50-fold.

He bet on all eight favourites in round two to collect the maximum payout for a multi with the TAB.

The Rabbitohs have started the season well and were at $1.22 to beat the beleaguered Sharks, who were at $4 to win. 

But the Sharks, who’s coach Shane Flanagan and backroom staff have all been stood down or sacked in the wake of a drugs scandal, showed great fight to push the Bunnies. 

The big win for the Kiwi gambler meant he also bet against the New Zealand Warriors, who almost upset the Sydney Roosters in another tight NRL clash that was separated by only two points.
