Did You Know?
Did you know that former South Sydney winger, Les Brennan, holds the Club record for most tries in a season? Find out how many tries he scored in the Club Records section of Rabbitohs.com.au!
Despite only featuring in 24 matches across two seasons for the Rabbitohs, Brennan undeniably left his mark on South Sydney, posting the most tries in a season for the Red and Green’s, as well as the most tries in a debut season by an individual at any club.
Playing alongside Club legends such as Clive Churchill, Jack Rayner, Les Cowie, Ian Moir and Greg Hawick in the 1954 NSWRFL season, the electrifying winger played an integral role in securing the Club’s 15th title since 1908, scoring the second most tries in the competition during the season and writing his name in the history books along the way.
After his phenomenal break-out season – which saw the prodigious talent bag three or more tries on five occasions throughout the year – Brennan only featured in two games for the Rabbitohs in 1955, scoring on three occasions. This season would be the final time that the freakish try-scorer would don the Red and Green, hanging up his boots at the age of 24.
