Rabbitohs fullback, Greg Inglis, fronted the rugby league media and a growing mass of Rabbitohs Members and supporters at Redfern Oval this morning (Monday) ahead of this Sunday’s Grand Final against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
Inglis was proud to see so many clad in their red and green, citing that the week means a lot to Rabbitohs Members and supporters
“It means a lot, especially to this community and this team,” said Inglis.
“We see it each and every week when you go out onto the field. We have open training sessions throughout the year and it’s great to see the fans turn out. To start off a Grand Final week – it’s going to be a buzzing week.”
The Rabbitohs booked their place in Sunday’s decider after defeating arch-rivals, the Sydney Roosters in a bruising encounter at ANZ Stadium.
After faltering in the Preliminary Finals in 2012 and 2013, Inglis said he was confident that the class of 2014 had what it took to make the final step and make the Grand Final.
“It was a massive hurdle to jump, but we knew we had the right attitude and the right mental state as a whole squad that could perform, and that’s what we did,” said Inglis.
“We’re just lucky and fortunate enough to be in this position – we’ve worked hard all year for it.
“We still haven’t achieved anything yet and we’re still 80 minutes away from even saying anything.”
