Souths Rabbitohs continue tradition
LATE last week, the South Sydney Junior Rabbitohs hopped into town to carry on a 27-year-old tradition.
The Rabbitohs and Dubbo Junior Rugby League have been competing at Under-14s level since 1991. The famous cardinal and myrtle (red and green) jerseys have become synonymous with the 13-side-sport since its inception in 1908.
The annual tour starts for South Sydney in Gunnedah then up into the cottonfields around Narrabri and finishes in Dubbo. The tour is about giving the Sydney kids an experience in the bush, and takes them on tours of farms, abattoirs and shearing sheds where they have practical demonstrations.
The visitors won this year’s challenge 14-12 to maintain a fairly even keel.
