The ABC Documentary on the South Sydney Rabbitohs entitled the ‘South Side Story‘ went to air in Australia last night with plenty of inside footage from the South Sydney Rabbitohs camp. South Sydney Rabbitohs players past and present, fans and the backroom power men are all featured in ‘South Side Story’.
The documentary details the journey of the South Sydney Rabbitohs since their deregistering from the NRL in 1999 through to the privatisation bid by Russell Crowe and Peter Holmes A Court.
With gripping footage from inside the South Sydney Rabbitohs internal vote at Telstra Stadium in 2006 – featuring speeches from supporters and power brokers alike. The documentary has a slick feel to it – with good video snippets from inside the South Sydney Rabbitohs dressing room and some great backroom comment from Russell Crowe and Peter Holmes A Court – this documentary looks to be a winner.
South Side Story shows both sides of the South Sydney Rabbitohs camp – Allan Jones, John Sattler and George Piggins have their say in ‘South Side Story’ – this is not only a documentary for South Sydney Rabbitohs fans, but a TV Documentary series that avid NRL and Rugby League followers alike should watch.
South Side Story continues on Tuesdays at 8pm on ABC for the next 5 weeks. After the first episode, it’s a story that many will be waiting eagerly to see. Beyond Productions and the ABC look to be on a real winner here; NRL News
looks forward to reporting more on the story of South Sydney in the weeks ahead.
