Season 1 Episode 10 Mario, Maroon & Manly 18/9/2019

We are proud to bring you two great interviews this week with Mario Fenech & Anthony Maroon. We also look ahead to the Rabbitohs sudden death clash with Manly at ANZ Stadium.

Mario Fenech

One of the most whole-hearted players to play club football, many people still wonder how the durable hooker/forward Mario Fenech did not win a Test jersey during his career. Fenech was chosen in two President’s XIII sides (against Papua New Guinea in 1985 and Great Britain in 1988) and represented NSW but Test honours eluded him. His stay with English club Bradford in 1986-87 was certainly short – he played in just two matches, the first as a prop against the visiting Kangaroos – before returning home. Fenech’s early career was plagued by a hot-headed temperament (few can forget his duels with opposing hooker Ben Elias) but Souths’ coach George Piggins appointed the firebrand hooker captain (echoes of John Sattler) with great results. Fenech took on the role with great pride and maturity, taking the club to the minor premiership in 1989. That year, he was Jack Gibson’s preferred hooker in NSW’s State of Origin team but a broken hand cost him a place on the Australian tour of NZ (his NSW replacement, David Trewhella, toured instead). The following year, with Souths in financial crisis, Fenech made the difficult decision to join Norths. Despite his great form in the front row for the Bears during 1991, he was constantly ignored for State of Origin duty. The following year was interrupted by injury and despite being one of the club’s best players in 1993-94 he was released at the end of the 1994 season due to salary cap restrictions. Fenech was an inspiration to the club’s younger forwards in the win over defending premiers Brisbane in the 1994 semi-finals. Moving to newly-formed South Queensland Crushers in 1995, he had a slow start to the season and was relieved of the captaincy before being relegated to the interchange bench. Fenech was starting to hit top form when he broke his collarbone and cut ties with the club at the end of the season to concentrate on a career in the media and later, the NRL.

Anthony Maroon grew up in Redfern, is a lifelong South Sydney Rabbitohs supporter & his cousin Darren Maroon played 1st grade for Souths. Maroons’ radio career began in 1989 at 2NZ Inverell, NSW & his career path then took him to further around the state to stations at Goulbourn, Wollongong & finally to Sydney where he’s been a popular star at Triple M for over 20 years (with a short stint at Vega 95.3). Maroon has become one of the best rugby league callers in the game & he’s an integral part of the Triple M Footy team.

Season 1 Episode 11 Terry Fahey 'The Redfern Express' & The Rampaging Rabbitohs 24/9/2019

This week we speak to “The Redfern Express” Terry Fahey & Souths young gun Blake Taaffe. We also have a chat to our host Grant Chappell about his life & times growing up around Maroubra Beach & Mavo gives us his story of that fateful day in 1987.

Terry Fahey

Terry Fahey first came to prominence as a Wellington winger when he played in Western Division’s win over Penrith in the final of the 1974 Amco Cup competition. Fahey was chosen for Country in 1975 but withdrew from the NSW side because of family reasons. Fast, and with the strength of a forward, he made his debut for Australia in a World Series match against NZ later that year but injured his hip after 13 minutes and had to be replaced. (Before the match had ended, Fahey showered, left the SCG and caught a plane home because he had to go to work). Signing with Souths in 1976 he again represented NSW and, the following year, played for Australia in the World Cup competition. Fahey made his Test debut in the First Test against NZ in 1978 but declined to tour with the Kangaroos, again citing family reasons. He was selected as a replacement for Larry Corowa in the Third Test against Great Britain in 1979 and, two years later, received another belated call-up when Kerry Boustead withdrew from the Second Test against France. Fahey spent seasons with Easts in 1981-82 and was a member of NSW’s State of Origin sides during this time. He was also the season’s leading try-scorer in 1982, scoring 15 tries. Fahey damaged a vertebra in his neck in 1980 and although he gave good service to battlers Canberra, the latter part of his career was hampered by recurring back pain. Fahey represented Country Origin in 1984 and, despite missing the entire 1985 season, overcame his injuries to play two further seasons with the Raiders.

Season 1 Episode 3 Featuring Craig Coleman 31/7/2019

In this episode we look back at the Rabbitohs 20-16 round 19 win over the Dragons at ANZ Stadium, discuss the Souths pathways teams results, interview Bunnies legend Craig ‘Tugger’ Coleman & look ahead to the round 20 Sharks clash that we would go on to lose 39-24 at Shark Park. Browny & Mavo also share their memories of the Cronulla Sharks.

Craig Coleman

A Cheeky, irrepressible halfback, Craig Coleman played a record 283 grade games with Souths. Coleman was a tyro behind the scrumbase; able to mobilise his forwards with sharp passing and providing great service to his outside backs. He played for Widnes in 1986-87, where he left under a cloud when he preferred to play second grade, and for Hull in 1988-89. After a decade with the Rabbitohs, he left the club at the end of 1992 to play with Salford in England. The following year, Coleman returned to Australia after the February 1 deadline and threatened to take the ARL to court when denied a clearance to play with the G’Coast club. (He played in the Souths A Grade competition for the remainder of the year). Coleman brought his experience to the fore with the struggling Seagulls club in 1994-5 and despite his veteran status, saw out his career with Wests in 1996. But his heart was always at Souths, and he returned to the club as a lower grade coach before taking over from Steve Martin midway through 1998. Coleman was at the helm of the Rabbitohs when they were excluded from the 2000 NRL competition and fought for two years for the right to be included in the premiership competition. It was only fitting then, when Souths returned in 2002, that Coleman was back as first grade coach but the move was not a success. After the Rabbitohs struggled to be competitive in 2002 and in pre-season trials in 2003, Coleman was sacked by the club.

“We marched for our football team,” said Rabbitohs great Craig Coleman. “We were the most historic club in the league and we weren’t going to be thrown out. It wasn’t right.
