Rabbitohs investor Peter Holmes Court has penned the following note to Members of the South Sydney Rabbitohs.


I would like Members and supporters, sponsors and the whole South Sydney family, to know that I am excited about the year ahead. Indeed the decade ahead.


My involvement in the South Sydney Rabbitohs has been one of the most rewarding chapters of my life.


We have come a long way, but there is so much further we can go together.


I look forward to the year in which we break through 40,000 Members, and to consolidating our strengths in every market in which we play.


This year the Club will deliver a substantial profit, which is a great reminder of how far we, and the game of Rugby League, have come over the last six years.


There is so much more we can achieve as a team and a Club.


I would love to see the fulfilment of the dream of building the High Performance Community Centre in Redfern, and I want to see Souths Cares achieve its potential in inspiring youth in our community.


Most of all, I want to see the team run out on Grand Final day. Over and over, again.


I am here for this Saturdays pre-season match against the national side from Papua New Guinea in Redfern.


I look forward to watching when our most determined players try to force their way into the first grade team.


PNG is a small but proud Nation that deserves the support and encouragement of Australia.


I look forward to seeing our Members there.


Up the Rabbitohs!


Peter Holmes Court
