On Friday 26th June 2020 an image was posted in our newly created Facebook group ‘Rabbitohs Radio Podcast Listeners’ by legendary photographer Col Whelan.

Beneath the photo Col asked the question “Any idea who these blokes are”?

The next day we had our answer thanks to Chris Isouard. In the picture stood three Rabbitohs legends Albert Clift, George Treweek & Eddie Root.

“Albert mentioned this day in a couple of his interviews over the years” said Chris. “Treweek and Root visited him in the early 80s and presented him with some of their playing memorabilia. Like many, Albert was a hero of mine and inspired me as a kid to collect everything Souths”.

Albert Clift

Albert Clift was a former player for South Sydney, former official and director, was the Club’s first mascot back in 1968, held an amazing collection of Rabbitohs memorabilia including the famed timekeeper’s bell from the first game in 1908 & is a Life Member of the Football Club.

S1 Ep10 Mario, Maroon & Manly

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. Fenechs’ 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

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. Maroon hosts brilliant trivia events & he’s an awesome MC who can arrange a star studded line-up of speakers to any event. Maroon also loves his cars & his latest vehicle is a Chevrolet Camaro.
