The South Sydney Rabbitohs flew out of Sydney this morning (Thursday) headed for the 2016 Auckland Nines Tournament at Eden Park.
The excitement could be felt at the Kingsford Smith Airport as players posed for photos with Rabbitohs Members while also receiving their well-wishes.
After two previous forays at the Auckland Nines tournament, the Rabbitohs will this year take on arch-rivals the Sydney Roosters in the tournament opener, before turning their attention to the Melbourne Storm to round out Day 1. Day 2 will see the side complete the pool stage of the tournament with a clash against the Parramatta Eels.
