On This Day: Sattler becomes the third Rabbitoh to Captain his country

On this day in 1969, John Sattler became the third Rabbitoh to captain his country!

During a decade’s worth of service to South Sydney, Sattler played 195 first grade games, played in four Premiership winning teams and six Grand Finals and represented the Kangaroos.

Gentleman John: The Sattler Story

He is most commonly known for playing on in the 1970 Grand Final with a broken jaw, going down in Rugby League folklore as one of the toughest players to ever play the game!
