Today we paid a visit to the home of Rabbitoh #767 Stephen Fenech.
Steve gave Rabbitohs Fan TV a tour of his home including his incredible home theatre that is filled with amazing and unique movie memorabilia items.
We interviewed Steve in his office that he uses as a studio with live crosses to TV and radio. We didn’t even need our own tripod because Steve had his own setup ready to go for our camera!
Topics covered in our interview were Steves rugby league debut for Souths, his big brother Mario and family, his career as a journalist, his favourite tech items, drone piloting, astronomical photography and electric cars. We could have covered a whole lot more so we’ll have to check back in with Steve for another chat soon.
A mixed weekend of results for our Rabbitohs teams. The first grade were hammered 32-12 by the Dragons on Thursday but our NSW Cup side won again today and moved up to 5th on the ladder, just one win behind the competition leaders Penrith.
The Rabbitohs have the bye next week then take on the 6th placed Eels at Accor Stadium on Super Saturday 7.35pm 2nd July.
The Rabbitohs TV team will be hosting the post match function in the P&O Members Deck.
A Cody Hodge hat trick continued his sparkling form as our NSW Cup side dismantled the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles with a huge eight tries to two 38-12 victory.
The score line actually flattered the Sea Eagles due to an Isaiah Tass off day with the boot.
Our NSW Cup team have the bye next week then play the 7th placed Eels before the first grade on Saturday 2nd July 5.10pm at Accor Stadium.
Our Jersey Flegg boys started well again scoring tries in the 2nd, 3rd & 10th minute of the game only to be run down by the Sea Eagles 30-26.
The Jersey Flegg also have the bye and will kick off a huge triple header against the 9th placed Eels at Accor Stadium on Saturday the 2nd July at 3.25pm.
Our womens team fought out a thriller against the 2nd placed Mounties, a Terri-Ann Caine try levelling the score at 20 all in the 69th minute.
Akira Kellys conversion to win the game was unsuccessful but it was still a fantastic improved performance by the team.
In two weeks time our women will be striving to celebrate US Independence Day with a victory over St Marys at the NSW Centre of Excellence 7pm on Monday the 4th of July.
A successful weekend for the Rabbitohs with the first grade defeating the Titans and 2 of our 3 pathways teams securing wins.
Another Alex Johnston hat trick was a feature of our NRL teams victory at the Gold Coast on Saturday.
