Rabbitohs forward, John Sutton, today unveiled the Club’s 2016 Dick Smith NRL Auckland Nines Jersey at an event in Sydney’s CBD, alongside the other 15 clubs ahead of the tournament at Eden Park on 6 and 7 February next year.
After taking out the 2015 tournament, the Rabbitohs will be looking to get their 2016 pre-season off to a good start at the reduced-format tournament in 2016.
“Everyone is looking forward to getting over to Auckland and throwing the ball around,” he said.
“The crowds are awesome and I’m sure there will be some spectacular tries and plays on show for the fans.”

The carnival-like tournament will be the first and only time in 2016 that all clubs will compete at the same ground on the same day, with many players likely to make their debuts for new clubs.
The draw for the 2016 Auckland Nines Tournament was announced in November, with the Rabbitohs set to take on arch-rivals the Roosters, as well as the Eels and Storm in the Waiheke pool of the tournament.
