John Sutton has been awarded the Burrow Appreciation Award (NRL) for 2019

Rabbitohs legend John Sutton has been awarded The Burrow Appreciation Award (NRL) for 2019.

In his last ever NRL season, there was no slowing down for Sutton, averaging 103 metres and 21 tackles per game, as well as providing eight line break assists. 

Sutton has made the most Rabbitohs appearances of all-time, retiring on 336 games including 61 tries, seven goals and one field goal; spanning across centre, five-eighth, second row and lock.

The Burrow has always been there for us, we have the best fans in the competition. I'm very humbled to receive this award.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs would like to congratulate John on his award and thank him again for his service to the club for more than 16 seasons.
