The 2015 Jersey Collection
In 2015 The Rabbitohs took to the field in specially designed Jerseys to pay tribute to milestones, history, events or our community.
We take a look back at our 2015 Jersey Collection...
Home & Away Jersey
A total of 21 small red lines made up the traditional red stripe of both 2015 Jersey designs, paying tribute to the Club’s 21 Premierships. “The Pride of the League” also takes pride of place inside each home jersey collar in ornate writing, while “South Sydney Marches on” is the message inside every Away collar in reference to our team song, Glory Glory.

World Club Challenge Jersey
Based on the Rabbitohs traditional cardinal and myrtle home strip, the WCC jersey was worn when the Rabbitohs took on St Helens in February and pays tribute to the historic UK fixture with the St George’s Cross taking prime position across the jersey chest and amongst the Rabbitohs 21 Hoops.
“It made me feel a bit warm inside seeing that red cross in the middle,” said George Burgess.
Auckland Nines Jersey
The 2015 Rabbitohs’ Nines Jersey featured the Maori Koru symbol symbolising new life, growth, strength & peace. The Maori Koru symbol was featured in part to pay homage to Pacific Islander Indigenous Communities.
The strip represents a unique part of the Club’s playing kit history as we went on to collect The Auckland Nines trophy through a thrilling extra time try to Matt King.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs met the Canberra Raiders at Barlow Park, for Round 8 in April, wearing a design inspired by the Redfern War Memorial found in the northwest corner of Redfern Park.
This memorial has held significant importance to the local community since its unveiling in 1918, paying tribute to those from the area that served in World War One. The granite and marble soldier that stands tall in the park will also stand tall on the front and back of the Rabbitohs jersey.
The jersey also acknowledges the close ties between Australia and New Zealand, with the first line of both national anthems gracing the front.
Also featured on the strip is the logo of the Commando Welfare Trust on the upper- centre chest, with $10 donated to the trust from each sale of the 2015 Commemorative Jersey.
