The Story of South Sydney's Golden Era
Foreword by Russell Crowe
If St George was 'The Beatles of rugby league', with hit year after hit year in the early part of the decade, then South Sydney was surely The Rolling Stones.
And just as The Beatles vacated the world stage and surrendered the title of best rock and roll band in the world to The Stones, South Sydney assumed the mantle of Sydney premiers and produced their own 'golden era' from 1967 to 1971.
The South Sydney Rugby League Club is one of only two remaining Rugby League foundation clubs in Australia, and the one that resonates with most rugby league fans.
Having claimed 20 premierships, they are the most successful club in the history of the game. Glory Days: The Story of South Sydney's Golden Era is the inside story of the men who made history with the Rabbitohs during five consecutive grand final appearances. A record-breaking period punctuated by the upset loss to Balmain in the 1969 grand final, author Alan Whiticker takes you behind the scenes of a marvellous era of rugby league.
