South Sydney are one of the most historic clubs in Australia and they are also one of the most successful with numerous Grand Final wins and Minor Premierships.
Although the club are one of just 2 foundation clubs to still play in the NRL top flight, they did spend some time out of the top tier due to financial reasons.
The South Sydney District Rugby League Football Club was formed all of the way back in January 1997 after a meeting at Redfern Town Hall, with the club joining the newly formed New South Wales Rugby League competition.
South’s first game saw them defeat North Sydney by 11 points to 7 at Birchgrove Oval in April 1908.
The club enjoyed early success by not only wining the first ever title but they would also go onto defend it and win again in 1908.
More success would come in 1914 and 1918 and then they would dominate for much of the 1920 with the club winning every title between 1925-1932, aside from 1930.
The 1940 was a decade of struggle for the club but they soon turned things around and the 1950’s would go on to be known as the golden era for the Rabbits.
Between 1950-1955 they would win 5 Premiership titles with only a loss in the 1952 Grand Final against Western Suburbs breaking that run.

Upon there return to the top flight, the club struggled and picked up 3 wooden spoon in the next 5 seasons.
In 2006 the club were taken over by a new consortium with Hollywood A lister Russell Crowe been amongst the names to take ownership.
That helped the club to attract big stars once again including the likes of Greg Inglis and the Burgess Brothers.
That then in turn helped them to reach the play-offs semi-finals for the first time since 1972 in 2007 but they wouldn’t reach the play-offs once again until 2012 under the stewardship of Michael Maguire.
In 2014, the club would once again pick up a title win with a win over Canterbury in the final in a match made famous by Sam Burgess playing much of it with a broken cheek bone.
The club would struggle over the next few seasons with 2 12th place finishers in 2016 and 17 before returning the play offs in 2018.
