South Sydney Rabbitohs

South Sydney RabbitohsAs one of the two remaining foundation clubs in Australian Rugby League, and with 20 Premierships under their belt, the South Sydney Rabbitohs are the most successful club in Australian Rugby League history. After going through a tumultuous period, which included being kicked out of the NRL in 1999 and a number of wooden spoons after returning to the competition, the club was rejuvenated by a financial agreement between Russell Crowe, Peter Holmes à Court, and 8000 South Sydney members in 2006. The Rabbitohs made first finals appearance since 1989 the following year, and the later additions of stars like Greg Inglis and Sam Burgess saw Souths win their first Premiership since 1971.

Souths could not follow up their most recent Premiership with a successful 2015 season. The departure of Burgess to rugby union, and a series of fitness issues for Greg Inglis, led to the side finishing seventh, and they were knocked out in the first week of the finals.
