Happy Birthday to the most capped first grade player in Souths history, John Sutton! Only four more games until he reaches 250 first grade appearances for The Rabbitohs!
While having played the majority of his career at five-eighth, in many ways the Souths Junior established himself as a ‘Mr Fix-it’ in both seasons 2014 and 2015 after shifting to the back-row – a move that diversified his skills and opened more possibilities for the veteran’s game.
With the injury of Adam Reynolds early in the season, Sutton again found himself filling in at number six, providing stability to the back-line and a level head with his many years of experience in that position.
From a 170 runs, Sutton made a total of 1326 metres with the ball in hand while making three line-breaks and 14 offloads during the course of 2015. Defensively, Sutton used his size to make 393 tackles at a tackle efficiency of 91.6%.
The Rabbitohs Family would like to wishe ‘Sutto’ a very Happy Birthday!
