On This Day: Souths beat St. George in a game to remember

Back in 1927, Souths won an inspired game against St George at the SCG 17-13, despite having two men sent off in the first half!

Playing in front of a healthy 31,500 crowd, the two men who were sent off were Ernie Lapham and Alf O'Connor. Despite this, the Rabbitohs led 13-5 at the break and Lapham managed to bag himself a try before being sent from the field.

Skippered by Alf 'Smacker' Blair, the Rabbitohs went on to win their third Premiership in a row later that year, igniting the first of three golden eras for the Club.

This majority of this 1927 team played during the 'Perfect Season' of 1925 so they knew all about staying in the arm wrestle, despite having the odds stacked up against them.
