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. Recent times however have seen the Rabbitohs venture near the bottom of the NRL ladder with an exception being in 2007 when South Sydney made its first finals appearance since 1989. Souths have added star Greg Inglis, Dave Taylor and Sam Burgess in recent times as they attempt to once again become a force.

In 2014, with a wave of support behind them, the Rabbitohs won the 2014 Grand Final – defeating the Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs 30-6. After finishing third in the regular season the side progressed through the finals competition by beating the Sea Eagles 40-24 in the elimination finals. South Sydney then defeated main rivals the Roosters in the preliminary finals 32-22, gaining them entry to the NRL’s biggest show. The 2014 premiership was the clubs 21st, an NRL record, and the franchises first since 1971.
