This month’s report is dedicated to SSH sports writer Michael Page who sadly passed away in June. Over many years Michael wrote with knowledge and passion about his beloved Rabbitohs. He wrote the game report for our grand final wrap-around in 2014, as well as a special (unbeatable) Souths Quiz in celebration of a long-awaited premiership for the team and the community. We will miss him. The SSH extends love and sympathy to Michael’s family and friends.
