Throwback: The South Sydney Dream Team

DT1

It's been 13 years since the South Sydney Rabbitohs announced the greatest Club side in Rugby League history - the South Sydney Dream Team - at a gala dinner held on 29 July, 2004, at the Westin Hotel in Sydney.

17 players were selected in position as well as a coach to represent the South Sydney Football Club from 1908 through to 2004. The team was selected a group of Rugby League experts, historians and by Rabbitohs fans through a public vote.
