To everybody in the Rabbitohs Family today, including; Rabbitohs Members, Corporate Partners, supporters, players, coaches, management, staff, directors and owners, a very happy 107th Birthday to all!
On this day in 1908, In the midst of a sweltering Sydney heat-wave, Redfern Town Hall played host to the founding Members of the South Sydney District Rugby League Football Club, who unanimously voted our famous Club into existence.
Those who braved the heat that night could hardly have imagined the significance of the Club’s formation, nor the special place in which the Club and the men who wear the red and green, now reside in the annals of Australian sport.
After becoming the first to be crowned Premiers in 1908, the Rabbitohs have collected a record total of 21 Premierships, the most recent of which was last October’s 2014 NRL Grand Final, with your red and greens emerging 30-6 victor’s over the Bulldogs.
The Club has also produced some of the game’s greatest ever names, including; Ron Coote, Bob McCarthy, Jack Rayner, Harold Horder, John Sattler, Eric Simms and the game’s number one player, Clive Churchill – among a host of others.
With an ever-growing and passionate Rabbitohs Family cheering on our famous Club, South Sydney isn’t showing any signs of grey hair – despite our grand old age!
To each and every Rabbitoh around the world today, Happy 107th Birthday!
