Rabbitohs Head Coach Michael Maguire and his team feel the significance of returning to the Sydney Cricket Ground – the site of so many Rabbitohs Premiership triumphs.

The Rabbitohs have a long history of playing at the famous ground, having played at the venue a total of 321 times, recording 185 wins, seven draws and 129 losses for a winning percentage of 58.72% - a host of Grand Finals among the matches.

“I think always going to the SCG is a special feeling,” said Maguire.

“A lot of history has been played on that field and we’re looking forward to getting back into our footy after our bye.

“There’s a lot of great people before us. To be able to coach at such a great Club with a lot of history and trying to add to that weekly is a special thing.

“To be able to do it at the SCG this weekend – we’re looking forward to it.”

Maguire told the Rugby League media this morning that Rabbitohs legends – many of whom played at the SCG during Souths’ Golden Era of the 60s and 70s – play a huge role in shaping the character of the Club.

“I speak to the old boys all the time actually – they’re a big part of our Club,” admitted Maguire.

“To watch those boys enjoy the journey of what we’re going through week in and week out – they know what it feels like, they’ve been there and they’ve got some great stories. The characters of this Club are a big part of what makes us.”

The Rabbitohs will take on the St George Illawarra Dragons at the SCG this Saturday night at 7:30pm. Click here to purchase your tickets.
