Rabbitohs squad slims ahead of monster double header

The South Sydney Rabbitohs are pleased to announce their updated 19-man squad for their Round 22 Women in League fixture against the Sydney Roosters at ANZ Stadium tomorrow, Friday 10 August at 7.55pm.

Rabbitohs Head Coach Anthony Seibold has named Richie Kennar to return to the side following a knee injury to Adam Doueihi. Campbell Graham has been ruled out with a wrist injury. Braidon Burns moves into the starting line up.

The Rabbitohs and Roosters will play in the second leg of the 2018 Ron Coote Cup tomorrow night, part of a double header which includes the Harvey Norman NSW Women's Premiership Grand Final between the South Sydney Rabbitohs and Mounties. The Ron Coote Cup celebrates the career of one of the game's greatest players, Ron Coote AM, who won six premierships and played in nine Grand Finals during his 15 seasons playing first-grade football with both South Sydney and Eastern Suburbs. The Rabbitohs currently hold a 12-point advantage having won the first match between the two Foundation Clubs earlier this season 26-14. The Ron Coote Cup is played over the two premiership games played between the Clubs each year with the aggregate scores determining the winner.

The Rabbitohs will wear a special Women in League jersey featuring pink and green hoops in the traditional South Sydney design. This is the same jersey design that the Rabbitohs' women's team wears in their matches, including tomorrow night's Grand Final at ANZ Stadium.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs won their way through to the Harvey Norman NSW Women's Premiership Grand Final with a 26-12 victory over Cabramatta in last Saturday's preliminary final at Leichhardt Oval. Mounties qualified by defeating the Rabbitohs in the major semi-final two weeks ago, however the minor premiership-winning Rabbitohs will be out to turn the tables on the last result between these two sides to take home the trophy and become the first Rabbitohs women's team to win the premiership which happens to be in their first season, just as the men's side did back in 1908.

All Rabbitohs Members and supporters can take advantage of the 'Fans First' initiatives at ANZ Stadium tomorrow night including pre-purchased general admission adult tickets for just $20 with the option to bring up to four kids under 12 in for free, pre-purchased family passes for just $40, rail travel to and from Olympic Park included in all Rabbitohs Memberships and tickets, as well as $2.50 sausage rolls and $9.95 kids meal deals.

Gates at ANZ Stadium will open at 5.15pm with the Women's Grand Final between the Rabbitohs and Mounties set to kick off at 5.30pm, followed by the NRL fixture at 7.55pm. The Rabbitohs encourage all Members and supporters to get to ANZ Stadium early to cheer on the women's team towards premiership glory before being in full voice for the NRL fixture against the Roosters.
