South Sydney Rabbitohs ... Greatest Clubman Nominations / Stories

From Quigs. from EOTB

John Sattler is one that comes to mind, George Piggins with red and green blood, Clive Churchill, Bernie Purcell. Souths are another club that is packed with great club men. Hope you can help me with some more..


From Thommo. from League Unlimited Rugby League Forum

Way before my time, but I doubt you could go past Churchill for Souths.


From Hodgee. submission to Era of the Biff.

Bernie Purcell, Paul Sait and Michael
Andrews

From Dave, from submission to Era of the Biff

Nominated George Piggins, Ian Roberts and Mario Fenech of SOUTH SYDNEY

I have followed this club for 30 years. You hear of the legends over and over but in my 'league consciousness' I'll rate 3 of equal importance.

I'll give George Piggins a guernsey, for saving the club. I owe my league past, present and future to his resoluteness and quiet genius. He is a living treasure. When we were booted out, I give up league. Now I attend matches-thanks to George.

Next, I'll choose Ian Roberts. Roberts was a gifted footballer. He was ahead of the pack in every respect. He was strong and feared.

But the greatest player who ever played for Souths is Mario Fenech. No other player who has pulled on the vermillion and myrtle, has played with as much passion. At his peak 84-91,he was incomparable. He was constantly overlooked for test and origin selection (although he did play a few games in the latter series).I once saw a young and immature Mario try to belt the crap out of a seasoned Ken Stewart at Redfern after Stewart (now back at Souths)took up an offer from the eels. That was sheer bravery and gross foolishness. They smashed each other and kept playing (as they used to do in the biff days). Mario played hard but always fair.




"I posted a thread on several Rugby League Forums in the UK and Australia and above are some of the responses. No major correspondence will be entered into but further comments are always welcome. Where there has been a detailed response then I will link it to another page for the convienience of reading it at your leisure. Of course this blockhead is not familiar with clubs from the northern hemisphere so I have relied on the goodwill of those submitting comments" - Quigs.
