The South Sydney Rabbitohs are mourning the passing of former Rabbitohs first grade player Paul Judd who passed away this week after a long battle with cancer. Mr Judd was 50 years of age.

Mr Judd played 81 grade games with South Sydney including nine first grade games between 1986 and 1988. It was a family affair for the Judds, with his brother Mark also playing first grade and his nephew Blake playing in the Rabbitohs under 20s ranks in recent seasons.

The Rabbitohs will wear black arm bands in Friday night’s game against the Parramatta Eels.

On behalf of everyone connected with the Rabbitohs, we offer our deepest condolences to Paul’s wife Donna, his family and friends at this difficult time.
