"Glory, Glory to South Sydney, South Sydney Marches On!"

Since their inauguration in 1908 as a foundation club, the South Sydney District Rugby League Football Club has won a remarkable 20 Premierships and 17 Minor Premierships, making the Rabbitohs the most successful club in Australian Rugby League history. This winning spirit has never been more apparent than the glory years between 1967 and 1971 in which the Redfern club, mentored by “The Little Master” Clive Churchill, combined a formidable forward pack led by Ron Coote, Bob McCarthy, George Piggins and inspirational leader John Sattler, with the attacking talents of goal kicking legend Eric Simms and dual internationals Michael Cleary and Jimmy Lisle to win an incredible four Grand Finals in five years, and in doing so breaking St George’s 11-year stranglehold on the competition.

Who could forget the 1967 victory over Canterbury-Bankstown when, in bleak conditions, second-rower Bob McCarthy intercepted a loose pass and raced away to score a spectacular try; or the ill-tempered 1968 decider against Manly-Warringah, again decided by a breakaway try, this time scored by a flying Mike Cleary? Experience Souths’ epic victory in the 1970 Grand Final against the Sea Eagles – their grit and determination personified by skipper John Sattler, who played through the pain of a shattered jaw to cap a now-legendary performance. Then witness the battle-hardened Bunnies clinch their fourth Premiership in five years in the 1971 Grand Final win over the Dragons, inspired by hooker George Piggins and the pinpoint kicking of Eric Simms.

Featuring all 4 of these memorable Grand Finals presented in their original broadcast format, this classic collection is a must-have for any South Sydney Rabbitohs fan.

Contains full match replays of the following Grand Finals:- 1967 vs Bulldogs , 1968 vs Sea Eagles, 1970 vs Sea Eagles & 1971 vs Dragons
