Long-time Rabbitohs Member, Tim Callaghan, got a lot more than he bargained for when he showed up at the Rabbitohs’ Round 2 clash against the Roosters – the proud Member walking away with a car courtesy of Suttons South Sydney, having successfully kicked a 35 metre goal at half-time.
It was a case of ‘second time lucky’ for Callaghan, who had previously had a go at the Suttons South Sydney Kick for a Car half-time activation, but had come up short.
“I entered in last year as well,” said a proud Tim.
“I got called up, but my key did not open the car, so this year when the key actually opened the car I got even more nervous and when I actually got out there to kick the goal, I just thought ‘get out there, kick the goal and hope for the best’.”

Tim made no mistake when he got the chance to sail the ball between the sticks from 35 metres out this time though, becoming the first ever winner of the competition.
“It was a great feeling,” said Tim.
“I was very, very nervous when I went out there – I actually don’t remember it really going over. All I remember is the crowd cheering, so I was pretty happy.”
The achievement is another proud chapter in the Rabbitohs’ life as a Member, having also played a part in the 2015 Membership video.
In addition to winning a Mitsubishi Mirage worth $14,459, Tim also won a SSFC Merch Pack with kicks from the 10m line and a $500 Suttons South Sydney service voucher with his kick from the 20m line.
Suttons are the Official Motor Vehicle Partner of the Rabbitohs, one of a Family of partners who give Members and supporters the opportunity to win great prizes on game-day.
Many thanks to the team at Suttons including, Cameron Fraser, Pat Borg and Nick Fradd for their enthusiasm around giving the Rabbitohs Family a chance to Kick for a Car!
