The South Sydney Rabbitohs are fully supportive of the action taken by Latrell Mitchell following the arrests of two individuals who allegedly racially vilified him via social media.
“Racism is absolutely abhorrent and has no place in our game or society in general,” Rabbitohs CEO Blake Solly said.
