Did you know that Club legend, John Sutton, has won the ‘George Piggins Medal’ – awarded to the Club’s ‘Best and Fairest’- three times?
A local junior and crowd-favourite, John Sutton has cemented his position as one of the most influential Rabbitohs of the modern-era, guiding South Sydney to their historic 2014 Premiership and becoming the Club’s most capped player, running out in the red and green on 246 occasions to date.
Since making his NRL debut in Round 17, 2004, the Kensington United and Coogee-Randwick Wombats junior has been a lynchpin in the Rabbitohs line-up, transitioning between the forwards and backs seamlessly throughout his career, providing the team with significant stability.
The versatility offered by Sutton has seen the destructive utility represent NSW City Origin and the Prime Ministers XIII, as well as gaining selection in the train-on squads for both New South Wales and Australia.
Entering 2016 with 12 seasons of top-grade football under his belt, Sutton is undeniably a key member of the South Sydney leadership group and will play a substantial role in the development of younger squad members in the years to come.
