An Open Letter From GI
The South Sydney Rabbitohs is a club built by its Members, for its Members, and it’s been that way for the past 110 years.
It’s one of the things that initially brought me to the Club, and it’s one of the things that has made me want to stay here for the rest of my career and beyond.
The support that the team gets week-in and week-out from the Club’s Members; be it at a game, or online, or just passing someone in the street; is second-to-none, and that’s what makes this Club so great.
2017 was not the best year for us on field but I’m very confident that we can turn things around in 2018.
We’ve seen the emergence of a number of young guns in our squad. Players like Angus Crichton, Cameron Murray, Zane Musgrove, Tyrell Fuimaono, Campbell Graham, Siosifa Talakai, Robert Jennings and Braidon Burns. What a future they all have!
And we haven’t even got to see the likes of Connor Tracey, Adam Doueihi, Sam Johnstone, Ky Rodwell, Tyrone Taukamo and 2018 recruit Jesse Arthars in first grade yet, but trust me, you will.
Then we have the addition of Dane Gagai to our squad, rated the best player in State of Origin in 2017, a good mate of mine, a representative team mate of mine, and I’m really excited to know he will be a club team mate of mine in the years to come too.
Don’t forget my fellow leaders in John Sutton and Sam Burgess, our little halfback Adam Reynolds, and the rest of our established first graders.
It’s exciting times ahead and I want to see you come along for the ride with us, but Membership of the Rabbitohs is about much more than the team. It’s about belonging, being part of the family, being a strong and united group in the South Sydney family, about the red and green being in your veins.
I’m a proud Member of this Club and I’m sure you are too.
We’ve had over 30,000 Members as part of the Rabbitohs family for the past four years straight. Let’s make it five years straight by cracking the 30,000 mark in 2018!
Sign up today, encourage your family and friends to join, and I’ll see you there in 2018!
