The South Sydney Rabbitohs are pleased to announce their 21-man NRL squad for their round 25 fixture against the Sydney Roosters at Stadium Australia, this Thursday 5th September at 7:50pm. Head Coach Wayne Bennett has named the same starting line up that defeated the New Zealand Warriors last Friday night. The Rabbitohs and Roosters will be playing the second leg of the Ron Coote Cup this Thursday night, with the Rabbitohs holding a ten-point advantage courtesy of their 26-16 win over the Roosters in round one this season. Turner, Burns, Tom Burgess, Denniss, Koloamatangi and Gagan are unavailable due to injury. George Burgess, Roberts and Britt are out suspended.
The Rabbitohs will be wearing special edition socks for this game against the Roosters to raise awareness for the fight against Cystic Fibrosis. The Rabbitohs were introduced to the cause via the Club’s official car partner Suttons and their Group Fleet Sales Manager Pat Borg, whose daughter Isabella suffers from Cystic Fibrosis. Pat raises money each year taking part in the 65k 4 65 Roses Walkathon, and both the Rabbitohs and Suttons are getting behind the cause at this game by showing their support for the Neverrest campaign.
