South Sydney Rabbitohs are the oldest club in the National Rugby League and one of Australia’s most successful.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs are the oldest club in the National Rugby League (NRL) and one of Australia’s most successful. The Rabbitohs have become a household name with their record of twelve premierships and sixteen grand final appearances. It all started back in 1908 when a local businessman from Redfern, John “Jack” Russell introduced rugby league to the New South Wales shores. Today, the club boasts a massive following of more than two million supporters across Australia, New Zealand and Papua New Guinea.

 

They were formed in 1908, making them not only the first League club in Australia but, with North Sydney Bears, their local rivals, the first twin-city team in Australian sport.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs are an Australian professional rugby league football club based in Redfern, a suburb of inner-Sydney. Since 1908, the Rabbitohs have competed in some form of rugby league competition.  They have won ten premierships at club level and one World Cup, making them the most successful club outside the Super League and NRL in terms of premierships.

 

Red and green were chosen as the team colours.

The team colours of the Sydney Swans are red and green. Red has been the most commonly used colour in North American professional sports teams since at least the late 19th century, while green has only been so since the early 20th century. Green is often chosen over blue because of its more eco-friendly connotations; however, red has also been used on occasion over late 19th century, 20th century and current 21st century North American teams by teams including the Pittsburgh Pirates (1887–1903), Detroit Tigers (1903–99), Milwaukee Braves (1954–1957) and Philadelphia Eagles (1950s).

 

17 players were initially selected for a match against St George on April 18, 1908.

17 players from the South Sydney District Rugby Union took to the field at Redfern Oval on April 18, 1908 for what was a historic occasion for rugby in Australia. The game was played between South Sydney and St George and amounted to both a Saints Cup clash as well as a national selector’s choice selection from each club.

 

The game was played at Birchgrove Oval but the scoreboard read Souths 9 – St George 1, so it is clear that there was some confusion over which code was being played.

This year’s Sydney Cup at Birchgrove Oval was an historic occasion for rugby league in New South Wales. The annual fixture between the top two sides traditionally known as Australian teams, has been renamed the ANZAC Test (or Australia v New Zealand in some parts of the world), making it the first rugby game played under that name since the 2011 Rugby League World Cup Final. However, with two of the three team captains being British Army servicemen, and a number of other personnel from various military forces taking part, it was clear to all who was meant to be running out onto the field – but with South Sydney playing against St George Illawarra Dragons, this confusion didn’t go unnoticed.

 

In fact, the game had been a rugby league encounter which went into history under union rules as a draw.

In fact, the game had been a rugby league encounter which went into history under union rules as a draw. Both sides claimed victory with the game having no real winner. Rugby league teams were rarely seen on Australian sporting grounds due to its origins in northern England and Scotland. So when Wallabies greats Ross McCormack and Stirling Mortlock decided to play rugby league in 2014, it may have seemed like an unusual idea but visitors came from around the world to witness what must have seemed like a bizarre spectacle.

 

Such confusion abounded in these early days that two Englishmen were taken to court for playing what was officially a banned game.

How confusing. So confusing. When I think of early video games and the law I don’t think “confusion”, but instead “conflict”. Even after the passing of the Video Game Crash in 1983, many people were still arguing about how games should be valued. It’s not as though there were no rules — there were clear regulations regarding what could be sold and how much could be charged for each new title. But some games couldn’t be bought legally, at least legally by anyone in the United States. As time went on, it became more common to see $50 or $100 payouts in arcades — which had yet to be perfected…

 

They won their case with a demonstration of how soccer and rugby differed and presumably carried on reporting to work each day as professional

The Sydney Morning Herald, a respected Australian newspaper, filed a case against its bosses after being asked to stop reporting on soccer matches and other sports. In a surprise move on Tuesday, the SMH announced that it had won its case against the Government-owned corporation for whom it was employed. The decision was made with the help of demonstrations of how soccer and rugby differed and presumably carried on reporting to work each day as professional journalists.
