The South Sydney Rabbitohs are pleased to announce their squad for round three of the 2024 NRL Premiership, the NRL’s Multicultural Round, against the Sydney Roosters to be played this Friday 22 March at 8pm at Allianz Stadium, the first leg of the Ron Coote Cup for season 2024.

Rabbitohs Head Coach Jason Demetriou has named Jack Wighton to make his club debut in the centres this Friday night. Dean Hawkins comes into the line up at halfback, with Davvy Moale starting in the front row. Jacob Host returns to the side in the second row.

Captain Cameron Murray will play the 150th NRL game of his career against the Roosters on Friday night, having made his debut against the Broncos in round eight, 2017. Taane Milne will be playing his 50th NRL game in South Sydney colours in round three, having made his club debut against the Sharks in round ten, 2021.

Round three is the first leg of the Ron Coote Cup for season 2024, named in honour of South Sydney and Eastern Suburbs legend, Ron Coote AM. Mr Coote won six premierships and played in nine Grand Finals during his 15 seasons playing first grade football with both South Sydney and Eastern Suburbs. The Ron Coote Cup is played across both home and away fixtures in any given season, with the winner determined by the aggregate score from those two regular season matches.
