One of only two foundation clubs still in the competition, the South Sydney Rabbitohs are easily the most successful team in rugby league history with 21 premierships. The club was sensationally removed from the competition at the end of the 1999 season, but overwhelming public support saw them reinstated in 2002.
South Sydney were one of the major disappointments of 2016. An uninspired 5-6 start put their four-year finals streak in jeopardy, before a nine-game losing streak doomed it. Four straight wins to finish off the year restored some pride, but the Rabbitohs were forced to stomach a 12th-placed finish.
