It looks like going down to the wire as South Sydney fight for their first finals berth since 1989. The new co-owners have caused many things to change - some for the good, some not so much according to others.
Tonight, one of the oldest players in Souths team, David Peachy (33), is celebrating a milestone - 250 first grade games - but Peachy and the team are finding the going tough.
South Sydney are on fire. Actor Russell Crowe and businessman Peter Holmes a Court have put their money where their mouths are, and for now, they are smiling like Cheshire cats. Russell Crowe convinced Errol Alcott, the conditioning coach for the Australian cricket team for 19 years, to join the Rabbitohs, and for the pre-season games he has the Rabbits fitter than they've ever been before.
Clothes may not maketh the man, but wearing brand new, expensive Armani suits is certainly inspirational to a team used to battling for survival. Welcome to the "new South Sydney" and episode three of ABC TV's six-part observational reality series on Hollywood superstar Russell Crowe's and multi-millionaire businessman Peter Holmes a Court's bid to transform one of the foundation members of the National Rugby League.
Crowe and his cohort, and co-owner of the "new South Sydney" Peter Holmes a Court, are confident they can restore and reward the faith the bunnies long-suffering fans have put in them.
The dream is straight out of Hollywood - the gladiatorial movie star and the hugely successful businessman - together they restore the faith to the legions of long-suffering fans and take their beloved team - The Rabbitohs - on to grand final glory - but can the dream become reality?
