A Member's Perspective - Round Six, 2013

Is this happening? Five wins in a row. The Mighty has stepped up to the plate.


We flew over the Tasman winless since '09 and fended off the Warriors' strength to show that we have grown up as a team.


No longer will we let a team run over us unexpectedly, because we are ready.


The Warriors thought they could run us down, but we hung on. Our fast out of the blocks approach seems to be working for us. Quick tries at the start of the match make it hard for any team to run down our big fellas.


So what are we going to do against the Storm? I think we can shock the pants off them.


Let's not let their 'big three' dominate. The Tigers did well in the first half last week to keep Billy Slater out of the game, so I hope our boys can try and replicate that.


This is the top of the table clash that I was dreaming of.


Who will be the only unbeaten team after this game?


Can we beat last years Premiers? I think we can.


Whos going to shine when we take it to the Storm? My guess is George Burgess.


This man has been an absolute champion for us this year. He is dominating the stats, and has turned the heads of all the spectators that lay their eyes on him.


I never thought anyone could come close to Sam but after being in 'Oz' for a year and getting his fitness up to scratch, George has become a priceless addition to our first grade team.


When the ball is in his hands he shows no fear. He wants to make metres. When he gets to one line, his eyes turn to the next. He does not want to be tackled.


It is refreshing to see such passion and eagerness from a man who has a clone who is working his way to don the same jersey on the same field.


Our immediate future looks divine.


I cannot remember a year since our reinstatement when we had players who were so keen to be in the Red and Green.


These guys are not just here for themselves anymore, they are a community who all have the one goal, to see the Mighty Rabbitohs at the top of the league once again, to return to glory.


When you see our Souths Juniors (Merritt, Sutton, Reynolds, McQueen, Peats, Farrell, etc) succeed on the field their happiness shines from their hearts to mine. They wear their hearts on their sleeves for the Bunny that sits over their hearts.


We are not in the papers with negative stories anymore, we are in there with wins, and hope.


Playing for Souths seems to have become a joy rather than a job and this attitude is paying off.


As much as they know they have to be professional, they are making the most of this honour and it is shining through on the field.


If we can shine up our defence and make it squeaky clean then I think we will be the sole team at the top of the table after Saturday night.


Imagine that!


The chance to propel us towards the minor premiership, the chance to make Melbourne sit up and take notice, and the chance to resurrect our glory.


If we beat the Storm, watch the tsunami of Red and Green that washes over the league. The NRL wont know whats hit it.


When this happens the wait will be worth every second.


No Member deserves a premiership more than a Rabbitoh Member, but in saying that, Saturday's game is one step in that journey. There's a long way to go between now and hopefully a Grand Final appearance, but it's going to be a very enjoyable ride!


Strap yourselves in fellow Rabbitohs and bring your voice.


Its our home game and we need to play our part to calm the Storm.


Up the Mighty Rabbitohs!!!
