SERIES PREMIERE – An extraordinary general meeting of South Sydney’s Rugby League Club has been called to determine if Academy Award® winning actor Russell Crowe and businessman Peter Holmes à Court can gather 75% of member votes and take over the South Sydney Rabbitohs, one of Australia’s premiere rugby teams. The decades leading up to this moment have been long and hard for Rabbitoh fans. Though a champion club, they have fallen on hard times, as money is scarce and games are more frequently lost than won. Crowe and Holmes à Court promise much needed change – but at a cost of owning the club. South Sydney Rabbitoh fans are divided right to the end in a bitter debate where we see the famous old club sold.
