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.
