Welcome to the Member Zone!
A place we created so that you, our Members, can enjoy exclusive access to our most premium content, more regularly.
From feature articles, special interviews and video content, we’ll take a closer look, or sometimes even a side-wards look, at the Rabbitohs world you love.
August 29th 1999: The South Sydney Rabbitohs would play their last game of NRL for 929 days. It was a Sunday at Parramatta Stadium and we lost 16-34 to the Eels.
March 15th 2002: The Rabbitohs were resurrected after exclusion from the competition, 80,000 people had marched in the streets, courtroom battles were fought and the Pride of the League were back. It was a Friday at the Sydney Football Stadium and we lost 6-40 to the Roosters.
The Rabbitohs would go on to win five games in Season 2002. It sounds dire, and it’s hard to disagree, but to the first men back for the Rabbitohs – a team created entirely from scratch for our return to the NRL – it is a season that will always be remembered fondly.
There’s a new spin on our traditional Members Christmas Video this year – The entire video was shot and produced by the Rabbitohs playing group.
In between gruelling preseason field sessions in the blistering summer temperatures and the humid downpours that have hit Sydney over the past two weeks, the Rabbitohs have found time to produce the 2016 Members Christmas Video. Armed with only their phones and their melodious voices, players took turns belting out the classic carol “Jingle Bells”.
Kyle Turner takes us behind the scenes to provide an insight into the making of this year’s Members Christmas Video!
More than just an emblem; it tells a story. A story of passion, pride, mateship, courage and the fighting spirit that has become synonymous with the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
The little Rabbit has a big significance to the Rugby League community. First appearing across the cardinal and myrtle hoops in 1959, the bunny is a constant reminder of the standards Maguire’s men have a responsibility to uphold.
With glory in their eyes, South Sydney Rabbitohs CEO, Blake Solly, and General Manager of Football, Shane Richardson, take us through the Club’s aspirations of chasing the 22nd Premiership and the steps put in place in order to achieve it.
Robert Jennings was a kid who grew up in western Sydney amongst a family of talented footballers.
Three brothers who would all play at NRL level, and one that would go on to represent his state and country at the senior level.
They all started their journeys at Penrith.
And, now, none of them remain with the Club at the foot of the mountains.
In 2013 Robbie Rochow was a main figure, playing 27 matches, in a Newcastle Knights team who forced their way to within one match of the Grand Final. In 2014 Rochow was again a key figure in Wayne Bennett’s Knights, playing 24 matches, and showcasing form that saw him picked for Country Origin. However, the next two seasons were tough for the versatile forward as he managed only 13 appearances while battling a string of injuries. Now, having overcome his injuries and nearing the best shape he’s ever been in, Rochow is hungry to re-establish himself as a dominant forward in the NRL.
Robbie Farah has done a lot in our game. He’s captained his club, enjoyed success at State of Origin and International levels with New South Wales and Australia, and he’s won a premiership. But the one thing he’s never done before is start again at a new club. That’s the challenge facing the current Blues hooker as he readies himself to start the next chapter in his stellar career, joining the mighty South Sydney Rabbitohs.
