Rabbitohs back-rower, Ben Te'o, fronted the rugby league media this week ahead of tomorrow's Grand Final blockbuster against the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs at ANZ Stadium.
After serving a five-week suspension, Te’o was thrown back into the match by coming off the bench against the Roosters in the Preliminary Final – the lethal defender making an immediate impact.
“When Madge gave me the opportunity to come off the bench, I knew I had to bring some impact,” said Te’o.
“Five week’s with no footy has been tough, but very excited and privileged to be a part of this week.”
The Grand Final will be Te’o’s last outing with the Rabbitohs before he heads overseas, with Te’o admitting that the Rabbitohs mean a lot to him.
“This Club means a lot to me,” admitted the departing Maroon.
“I think I’ve changed a lot as a person, as a player since I’ve come here, and it means a lot to me and the squad to be here this week and we’re just going to enjoy it.”
