The South Sydney Rabbitohs are pleased to announce their 23-man squad for the 2016 Charity Shield to be played at ANZ Stadium on Saturday 13 February at the family-friendly time of 5:30pm against the St George Illawarra Dragons.

The Rabbitohs have named 15 players with first grade experience including new recruits Dane Nielsen, Damien Cook, Michael Oldfield and Hymel Hunt, plus a host of young, up-and-coming players looking to prove themselves ahead of round one of the NRL Telstra Premiership.

John Sutton will captain the South Sydney side against the Dragons in what will be a big weekend of Rugby League action. The Charity Shield kicks off at 5:30pm with the All Stars game set to follow at 7:30pm from Brisbane.

Souths Cares’ charter is to support disadvantaged, marginalised and indigenous youth and their families through a three-pillar framework of Employment, Education and Healthy and Active Lifestyles.
