I am shocked & saddened to hear of the passing of Shane Warne who passed away in Thailand today of a suspected heart attack aged 52.
I created a tribute to the iconic spin bowler almost 10 years ago using Paul Kellys’ song so I suppose today it’s worth another look. It’s had 30k views & I always wondered if Warney had watched it, now I’ll never know.
Shane Warne changed the game of cricket, he made spin cool, he was one of a kind.
A magical moment was captured on SEN 1170 radio earlier today when Rabbitohs legend John Sattler sang the team victory song for his son Scott on his show Sportsday.
Rabbitohs Victory Song Lyrics
And now that we’re all round the bar and the captain’s declared it a quorum we’re drinking our way through the night and we’re having the time of our lives throw the empties away, start again – start again
for the boys of South Sydney are together
and we’ll drink till dawn breaks again and may the sessions of South Sydney last forever.
Oh! we never stagger, never fall We sober up on pure alcohol Our royal sons go marching up for more We’ll guzzle, guzzle, guzzle and we’ll tip it down our muzzle
And we’ll sing out the order loud and clear: More beer!
And we’ll drink all night until we’re very tight At the shades of wherever we are Six hefty forwards and seven greasy backs And plenty rabbit barrackers to keep the bludgers back
When the skin and hair is flying and the slaughter has begun
Three cheers for the good, old Rabbitohs For the victory we have won Up the Rabbitohs!
