Don Cameron says: I saw Tugger grow up loving his football as a kid and as a senior player with South Sydney. There were some tough players that wore the red and green John Sattler, Les Davidson, David Boyle, Micheal Andrews but non tougher than Craig, he never took a backward step he had no fear.

Mavos mate Les Smith had an horrific accident with a circular saw at home in Canberra last Saturday. Les nearly lost 3 fingers & needed a 10 hour operation. Les is as mad a Rabbitoh as you will ever find & along with wife Cindy they often travel from the nations capital down to Rabbitohs games. Get well soon mate.
Chaps, Browny & Mavo work together as wharfies at Port Botany in Sydney. A lot of their workmates are former rugby league players so they have compiled a wharfie dream team that would surely be hard to beat. Can anyone out there match this team from their workplace?

Crash And The Crapenters
Chris Carpenter & the boys from Crash allowed us to use their new song ‘There’s Many A Slip’ on last weeks show. As we were making the video clip to accompany the music we realised that the bands’ name is actually Crash & The CRAPenters not CARPenters. We just assumed that the band took its name from ‘Carpos’ surname but no they have put a little punk style twist on the word. We apologise to the boys from the band & we have amended the word to the correct spelling wherever it was possible to do so. You can be assured that in the future we won’t be making the same mistake again. Good luck with the new song Crash!
Chris Carpenter & the boys from Crash allowed us to use their new song ‘There’s Many A Slip’ on this weeks show. The words are extremely relevant at the moment “Just get back up…the brightest dawn can follow the darkest night!”.
As we were making the video clip to accompany the music we realised that the bands’ name is actually Crash & The CRAPenters not CARPenters. We just assumed that the band took its name from ‘Carpos’ surname but no they have put a little punk style twist on the word. Carpo has assured us that it’s ok & it happens all the time but we’d still like to apologise to the boys from the band. We have amended the title to the correct spelling wherever it was possible to do so. You can be assured that in the future we won’t be making the same mistake again. Good luck with the new song Crash!
We mentioned on this weeks show that we’d post the song for you to have a listen so here it is.
The new COVID-19 lockdown measures mean that we can’t all be in the same place at once to record the show. We can however still make the podcast via phone hook up & even though our sound quality may not be up to our usual high standard, we’ll continue because the show must go on! On this weeks show we speak to Rabbitohs supporter & Group One winning jockey Adam ‘Hippo’ Hyeronimus, chat to Glen ‘Fats’ Farah, there’s new music from Crash & The Carpenters plus all the Rabbitohs & NRL news.
Adam Hyeronimus is a 29 year old jockey who grew up supporting the Rabbitohs thanks to his grandfather who was also a “massive South Sydney supporter”. Adams dad Craig was a champion jockey & his pop Reg on his mums side was also a legendary hoop. As a young bloke Adam played hooker in rugby league but with racing in his blood once he turned 16 a life in the saddle beckoned.
Hyeronimus was schooled via the Racing NSW apprentices program and tutored by the likes of Ron Quinton, Malcolm Johnston and Mal Fitzgerald. “I started off with Rob Price at Nowra then came up to Kevin Moses at Randwick,” Hyeronimus said.
On Saturday 28th March 2020 Hyeronimus rode his 1st Group One winner at Rosehill Gardens on the Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott trained Shout The Bar.
“Shout The Bar, brilliantly rated in front by Hyeronimus, defied her opposition to win the $500,000 Vinery Stud Stakes (2000m).” – Ray Thomas
Waterhouse, the Hall of Fame trainer who has now prepared 142 Group 1 wins, said she was “over the moon for Adam”.
“I only said to (husband) Rob about a month ago this Adam Hyeronimus is riding absolutely super,’’ Waterhouse said. “He understands the pace of races, never bustles them, he rates them perfectly. It’s a real art.
Alex Johnstons Tik Tok & Damien Cooks ‘Game Day’
On the show this week we talk to Glen Farah from NG Farah Real Eastate. Glen talks about his life as a Rabbitohs fan, gives us an insight into the property market in this current climate & we also talk about our good mate Hilton ‘The Bomber’ Thomas.
Rabbitoh Of The Week
The Rabbitoh Of The Week is Michael Hambly from Kensington Produce for his magnificent Rabbitohs sticker in the warehouse.
This week a video clip from 1992 surfaced of Brent Todd signing with Gold Coast. In the clip Todd is asked why he signed with Gold Coast and he replies; “because the sheilas are good looking and I want to f*** them all”.
Braith Anasta talks about of the circumstances that forced him to abandon his dream of playing for the Rabbitohs.
Crash & The Carpenters
This week the boys presented us with another new song ‘There’s Many A Slip’. The song was inspired by a meeting between Chris Carpenter & Souths legend John Sattler & you van hear selected music from it in this episode.
We kick off the 2020 season with a huge show that includes a chat to newly appointed Rabbitohs captain Adam Reynolds. We preview the Rabbitohs round 1 clash with the Sharks & go behind enemy lines with former Sharks hooker & Cronulla local Glen Steele.
