The South Sydney District Rugby League Football Club was formed at a meeting on 17 January 1908 at Redfern Town Hall[3] when administrator J J Giltinan, cricketer Victor Trumper and politician Henry Clement Hoyle came together in front of a large crowd of supporters.[4] The club played in the first round of the newly-formed New South Wales Rugby League, defeating North Sydney 11–7 at Birchgrove Oval on 20 April 1908.[4][5] The team went on to win the inaugural premiership then successfully defended their title in the 1909 season, winning the Grand Final by default.[6] After further premiership success in 1914 and 1918, South Sydney won seven of the eight premierships from 19251932, only missing out in 1930. The 1925 side went through the season undefeated[7] and is only one of six Australian premiership sides in history to have achieved this feat. Such was Souths dominance in the early years of the rugby league competition that the Rabbitohs were labelled "The Pride of the League".[8][3] Image File history File links Cchurchill. ...

In the 1950s South Sydney again had great success, winning five of the six premierships from 19501955, and losing the 1952 Grand Final against Western Suburbs in controversial circumstances. The 1951 side's point scoring feat in their 42–14 victory over Manly-Warringah[9] remains the highest score by a team in a Grand Final and "the miracle of '55"[10][11] involved South Sydney winning 11 straight sudden death matches to win the premiership. Players that were involved in these years included Denis Donoghue, Jack Rayner, Les "Chicka" Cowie, Johnny Graves, Ian Moir, Greg Hawick, Ernie Hammerton, Bernie Purcell and Clive Churchill.

In the late 1950s Souths began a poor run of form failing to make the finals from 19581964. However in 1965 a talented young side made the Grand Final against St. George who were aiming to secure their 10th straight premiership. The young Rabbitohs weren't owerawed by the Dragons formidable experience and in front of a record crowd of 78,056[12] at the Sydney Cricket Ground, they went down narrowly 12–8.[13] The nucleus of this side went on to feature in Australian representative teams for the next six years and ensured another golden period for South Sydney making five successive grand finals from 19671971, winning four. Bob McCarthy, John O'Neill, Eric Simms, Ron Coote, Mike Cleary and John Sattler from 1965 were later joined by Elwyn Walters, Ray Branighan, Paul Sait, Gary Stevens and coach Clive Churchill to form a fearsome combination before internal strife and poaching by other clubs from 1972 onwards unravelled the star studded pack.[14] From this period comes part of South's and Australian Rugby League folklore when in the 1970 premiership decider against Manly, captain John Sattler inspired the side to victory playing out 70 minutes of the match with his jaw broken[15] in three places after being king hit by Manly prop John Bucknall.[16][17] Image File history File links Eric_Simms. ...

Financial problems started to hit Souths in the early 1970s, forcing some players to go to other clubs. The licensed Leagues Club, traditionally such an important revenue provider to all first grade league sides, was closed in 1973 but a "Save Our Souths" campaign ensured the club survived. "Super Coach" Jack Gibson's[18] arrival turned the club's form, winning the pre-season competition in 1978.[4] The club captured victories in the mid-week Tooth Cup competition in 1981[19] and in the pre-season "Sevens" competition in 1988.[4] The Rabbitohs were able to make the finals on five occasions in the 1980s, including a dominant season to finish as minor premiers in 1989.[4] The 1989 season proved to be the club's most successful in years, but also marked the last time the club has been able to reach the finals.

The club stayed afloat in the 1990s despite major financial problems. Souths' only success came in 1994 when they won the pre-season competition, defeating the Brisbane Broncos 27–26 in the final.[4] The Super League War and the eventual formation of the National Rugby League affected the club greatly when it was determined in 1998 that the newly formed competition would be contracted to 14 teams for the 2000 season. Following a series of mergers by other teams,[20] South Sydney failed to meet the NRL's selection criteria to compete in the competition and were subsequently excluded from the premiership at the end of the 1999 season.

In 2000 and 2001, South Sydney fought their way back into the competition following a string of high profile legal battles[21] against the National Rugby League and News Limited.[22] A number of well attended public rallies took place during this time, as supporters from many different clubs got behind South Sydney's case.

Since being readmitted, the Rabbitohs have been rather unsuccessful in the premiership, finishing amongst the bottom three teams for five seasons straight including three wooden spoons. However, following the club's takeover by famous Hollywood actor Russell Crowe and Peter Holmes a Court in 2006,[25] the club has had great success in securing a number of major international player signings as well as recruiting several key managerial positions including Jason Taylor as head coach.

Emblem

The original Rabbitohs emblem introduced in 1959

One version of how the club got the "Rabbitohs" nickname comes from their rugby union days at the turn of the 20th century. During that period, players wearing their cardinal red and myrtle green football jumpers, earned some extra money on Saturday mornings by hawking rabbits around the district with the traditional cry of "Rabbitoh!" echoing through the narrow streets.[26] As they made a sale, they would sling the bunny from their shoulder and skin it on the spot, inevitably accumulating some of the fur and blood on their jerseys as they did so. When they played in those blood stained jumpers that afternoon, opponents from wealthier rugby clubs did not always appreciate the aroma and would mockingly repeat the "Rabbitoh!" cry.[27] Image File history File links Souths_emblem_orig. ...

Another account of the legend relates that the Rabbitoh name was a disparaging reference by opposing teams to South's home ground being plagued with "rabbit 'oles". In those early days Redfern Oval was then known as Nathan's Cow Paddock.[3] Yet another version links the Rabbitoh name as being adopted from that of the touring Australian rugby union teams of the early 1900s who where nicknamed "Rabbits" prior to discarding the name in 1908 in favour of the moniker "Wallabies".[28] The South Sydney Rabbitohs Rugby League Club played at Redfern Oval between 1948 and 1987. ...

The "Rabbitoh" emblem (a white running rabbit) first appeared on the team's jersey in 1959. The Rabbitoh emblem has in various forms been carried as the club's crest on every player's jersey ever since. The original "Rabbitoh" emblem design that appeared on the team's jerseys throughout the 1960s and 1970s has now been incorporated on the current jersey.

Colours

South Sydney has used cardinal red and myrtle green colours on its playing jerseys for the vast majority of the club's history. Some sources have suggested that this combination of colours was due to the local rugby union club being nicknamed the "Redfern Waratahs". The first British inhabitants had often called the waratah a "red fern" instead, hence giving the suburb its name, and ultimately the local rugby club its emblem. Red and green dominate the colours of the waratah and hence, possibly, the South Sydney Rugby League Football Club adopted these colours for their jerseys.[28] However, the suburb of Redfern was named in honour of Dr. William Redfern, one of the first doctors of the colony, who treated convicts and poor settlers as well as the wealthy.

The club's jersey has been a hooped-styled one comprising of alternating red and green, and has been used for the vast majority of the club's history.[29] In 1945 and 1946 the club broke with this tradition and used a green design with a red "V" around the collar, before reverting back to the original hoop style. From 1980 to 1984 the team played in a strip which saw the inclusion of white hoops within a predominately green design with a central red stripe and was affectionately known as the "Minties"[30] jersey (so-called due to its apparent similarity to the wrapper design of the popular sweet).[31] With the introduction of "away" jerseys towards the end of the 20th Century, the club initially introduced a predominantly white jersey for away matches which was changed to a predominantly black one for the 2006 season.

Before the start of the 2007 season, the club announced that the away jersey would be styled identically to the traditional home jersey, with the exception of sponsorship and the rabbit emblem, which as been styled similarly to the one that initially featured on jerseys in the 1960s.[32] For home matches, the rabbit emblem remains white and for away matches the emblem is black.[33] The 2007 National Rugby League (NRL) premiership is the current and one hundredth season of professional rugby league football club competition in Australia, and the tenth run by the NRL.

The playing shorts worn were historically black, though in the late 1970s the club adopted green shorts with a red vertical stripe. This was then superseded by the white shorts of the "Minties" outfit. When the club subsequently reverted to their traditional playing strip, the decision was made to wear black shorts once more.

During the early years of the New South Wales Rugby League premiership, "home games" were not assigned as readily as they are today. However, South Sydney played most of their games at the Royal Agricultural Society Ground from 1908 until the club's final departure in 1920. From 1911 onwards, the Sydney Sports Ground was also used interchangeably with the Agricultural Ground over a decade for hosting matches.[34] In 1947 the club played its final season at the Sports Ground, before relocating to Redfern Oval in 1948.[35] It was here that team played in the heart of the club's territory and played the vast majority of its allocated home matches for an extended period of time.

Link to the indigenous community

Souths has a long history of producing talented indigenous players, including stars such as Eric Simms, Eric Robinson, Kevin Longbottom and, more recently, Nathan Merritt.[48] Throughout its history the club has been a provider of opportunity for young Aboriginal players from both the South Sydney district and regional New South Wales. The link that exists between South Sydney Rugby League Club and the Aboriginal community of the district goes back to the formation of the Redfern All Blacks Football Club[49][50] in 1930, a vitally important nursery for Souths over the years.[51] Languages Several hundred indigenous Australian languages (many extinct or nearly so), Australian English, Australian Aboriginal English, Torres Strait Creole, Kriol Religions Primarily Christian, with minorities of other religions including various forms of Traditional belief systems based around the Dreamtime Related ethnic groups see List of Indigenous Australian group names Indigenous...

Rivalries

The Rabbitohs and their fans have built up rivalries with other clubs, particularly the Sydney Roosters, the other remaining foundation club.[52] The Rabbitohs and the Roosters share inner-Sydney territory, resulting in a strong rivalry since 1908 when Souths beat Eastern Suburbs in the first grand final. Games between the neighbouring foundation clubs have since formed part of the oldest "local derby" in the competition.[53] The rivalry increased after 1950 due to conflict between junior territories and since the 1970s escalated once more as both clubs drew key players away from each other (Souths lost internationals Ron Coote, Elwyn Walters and Jim Morgan to the Roosters from their last era of premiership winning teams, whilst more recently Souths lured key forwards Bryan Fletcher and Peter Cusack away from the Roosters 2002 premiership winning side). In June 2007, amid controversy and much public fanfare, Souths signed from the Roosters Craig Wing, a Souths junior and former Rabbitoh player, on a four year deal commencing season 2008.[54] The Sydney Roosters is a professional rugby league club based in the Eastern Suburbs of Sydney, Australia. ... In many countries the term local derby, or simply just derby (pronounced der-bee in American English and dar-bee in British English after the English city) means a sporting fixture between two (generally local) rivals, particularly in Association Football. ... The Sydney Roosters Juniors base has a colourful and extensive history. ... Bryan Fletcher (born April 12, 1974 in Sydney, NSW) is an Australian former international rugby league forward who currently plays for English Super League team, Wigan Warriors // Bryan started his career at Sydney Roosters making a total of 125 appearances for the red, white and blue. ... Peter Cusack (born Young, NSW 27 January 1977) is an Australian rugby league player. ... Craig Wing (born Sydney, December 26, 1979) is an Australian rugby league player. ...



Other long-time traditional rivals include the Manly Sea Eagles (who since 1970 purchased many of Souths' star players)[55] and former clubs the St George Dragons (resulting in the annual Charity Shield match) and Balmain Tigers. The rivalry with Balmain began in 1909 when the Tigers failed to appear for the grand final and thereby forfeited to Souths.[3][6] In 1969 enmity was again fueled between the clubs with Balmain's controversial[56] victory against the Rabbitohs in the grand final that year.[57] Regarded as the unofficial start to the National Rugby League (NRL) season, the Charity Shield has been in operation since 1982 (with the exception of 2000 and 2001 when Souths were not in the NRL). ... The Balmain Tigers (also known as the Sydney Tigers from 1994-98) were one of the founding clubs of the New South Wales Rugby League premiership and one of the most successful in the history of that competition with eleven premierships. ...
