Maguire's Insights: Round 9, 2017
Head Coach Michael Maguire has put last week's result against the Brisbane Broncos behind him as he looks forward to our Round nine clash with the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles.
After a controversial finish against the Brisbane Broncos the coach has shifted his focus towards an exciting clash with Manly in front of former Souths players at Allianz Stadium for our Old Boys Round.
"We've obviously looked at areas that we need to make sure we get right," said Maguire.
"Through little moments in that game, if we had different circumstances the game wouldn't have been the same.
"We know what we're going in to (this Friday) and it's about making sure we focus on those areas. We're really keen on getting our execution right and getting our defence in order because obviously there's plenty coming our way."
Maguire will welcome back halfback Adam Reynolds after his late withdrawal from the Broncos clash with a hip injury.
"It's always handy getting the little number seven in," smiled Maguire.
"He was pretty close last week but it was just unfortunate. I'm looking forward to getting him back in. He can drive the team around and it allows 'Sutto' (John Sutton) to get back to that edge."
With the game kicking off at 6pm on Friday at Allianz Stadium, the Head Coach believes it's a perfect opportunity for families to get out for a great game of footy and is urging our Members to turn up in force.
"It'll be great to get all our Members out there. They play a big part in who we are as a Club and it's very special we've got them," said Maguire.
"If we can get them out to the game and they make plenty of noise for us it adds to everything we do."
Round nine will be the Rabbitohs’ dedicated Men of League round, featuring the Rabbitohs’ past players’ reunion, a lap of honour and guard of honour made up of former Rabbitohs’ players and legends, as well as Men of League fundraising opportunities at the game. The Chairman of the Men of League Foundation is South Sydney legend Ron Coote.
