Rabbitohs all the way, say young fans
The Rabbitohs are on top of the table going into round 20 but the question is whether they can go all the way. The SSH took to Redfern Park to interview some of the youngest fans and find out how they are finding the season so far.
Olivia Chen, aged 10, Mitchell Chen, aged 7, and Hannah Dunn, aged 11, have been fans for over three years.
All unanimously agree that Greg Inglis is their favourite player “because he scores the most tries”.
They retold their favourite moments going to see a live game dressed in the green and red, and commented that they loved the atmosphere. Olivia said: “It’s really thrilling, loud and exciting.”
Hannah said she became a fan after living in the South Sydney area and believes the players show good sportsmanship.
Olivia said she is proud to be a supporter as “they are a nice supportive team and help the community and are really nice to children”. She believes that what makes a good player is someone who is “good at teamwork, fast and dodging”.
Mitchell said he loves watching the Rabbitohs play and coming down to the Redfern Oval and having a kick with his Dad. A career wearing the red and green may be in his future.
This is “their year” they believe and if we are to listen to the wise words of these young fans they tip that the grand final will be between the Rabbitohs and the Roosters, with the Rabbitohs going all the way!
