On This Day: Asotasi Becomes the Sixth Rabbitoh to Captain their Country

On this day in 2007, Roy Asotasi captained his country New Zealand for the first time in the Anzac Day Test, in the 30-6 defeat against the Kangaroos.

Asotasi was the sixth Rabbitoh to captain their country. He is considered to be one of the most important player signings for South Sydney since re-instatement in the NRL in 2002.

I was only a kid at 25 and never pictured myself as Captain.

Asotasi was also the co-captain of the Rabbitohs at the time with Peter Cusack and later that year he was named the George Piggins Medallist as the Club’s Best and Fairest player.
