This encounter took place in the row behind Grant Chappell from Rabbitohs TV who said “It had started to rain so Pete moved up under cover & came over when he saw George.”

“After I took the photo we all started chatting with Georges’ close mates Norm Lipson & the Lahood boys.”

“Pete showed a huge amount of respect for George when he told us that he liked hearing the old stories about the great man. Pete wasn’t there for a photo opportunity, he just wanted to spend a few minutes with the man who is a true Souths hero.”

Our tribute to George.

South Sydney Rabbitohs first grade player number #546 George & first grade player number #1170 Pete are both as tough as they come & have both played hooker for the club.

Watch our chat with Pete.

George hasn’t been in the best of health lately but it was nice to see him out & about watching the footy.
