South Sydney Rabbitohs Club Records

The 2017 season will mark the Club's 200th game at Allianz Stadium in round nine against the Sea Eagles. To sum up the potential milestone series for the 2017 season, we bring you back to our current Club Records with one player set to potentially break a big record! 

John Sutton could potentially break a long standing, 15 year record this season if he plays over 16 games for the South Sydney Rabbitohs. 

John Sutton is 16 games away from breaking Craig Colemans record of 297 games for the most games played in all grades at South Sydney.
