South Sydney Rabbitohs at Town Hall


The sport with the biggest following in Sydney is Rugby League. The season has just ended and the premiers are the Bunnies. The South Sydney Rabbitohs last won in 1971, hence the jubilation for their fans. Yesterday they were presented with the keys to the city, a first for a league team. Russell Crowe is part owner and the game was a particulary brutal one against the Bulldogs. The bunnies best, Sam Burgess, broke his eye socket in the opening minute and played on.
