South Sydney Rabbitohs City Cup First Grade Players (1912-25,37,42,59)

139 players have played in the City Cup across 51 non-premiership First Grade competition games for the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

In 1912 the NSWRL initiated a post season knockout compeition where only the top 8 placed premiership teams would compete. The matches occurred after the season proper had concluded and proved to be very popular as premiership interest had dropped during the first past the post premiership era.

In 1921 Kangaroos tours restarted after World War I. It was decided that the second half of the premiership season would become the City Cup. With the knockout now being a top 4 finals series based upon placings.

In 1922-23 this was revised that the second round results would count for both the premiership and City Cup. Again a top 4 knockout final series would be conducted based up City Cup placings.

1924 saw the second half of the season results revert back to only being City Cup results. With the same top 4 finals knock out series.

In 1925 the City Cup competition reverted back into its Top 8 knockout format.

In 1937 due to the early departure of the Kangaroos for England, it was once again decided that the second half of the season would once again be contested only for the City Cup,with a top 4 knockout finals series.

1942 saw the competition have a brief return in its post-season knockout format during World War II. But the State Cup-Tie had proved propular and the City Cup only lasted a year.

1959 saw the return of the City Cup sponsored by Westinghouse and now being played for the Westinghouse Trophy. Again it was run as a post season knockout.

But post-season competitions never gained the popularity again as they once had between 1912-1925 since the advent of the mandatory premiership finals series in 1926.
