A Full-Hooped Tradition is Reborn
Paying tribute to the Rabbitohs 116-year history in 2024, with the Club returning to the full-hooped jersey for both it’s home and away jerseys in the beckoning season.
For the first time since 2006, the Rabbitohs will return to the full cardinal red and myrtle green hoops on the jersey, returning to a tradition that stretches back to the foundations of the sport in this country in 1908.
Since 1908 until 2006, the Rabbitohs have worn jerseys that featured full, unbroken hoops, worn like armour protecting the men that went into battle for the people of South Sydney.
The full hoops were worn by 20 premiership-winning teams since 1908, including the likes of Clive Churchill, Jack Rayner, Arthur Hennessy, George Treweeke, Alf Blair, John Sattler, Ron Coote, Eric Simms, Bob McCarthy, Mario Fenech and Luke Stuart, to name just a few.
