South Sydney fans can really start to get excited.

They're probably showing signs of jubilation already, but in the past they've tended to get ahead of themselves in expectations. This year though, their team is the real deal. After decades of disappointment, which included having their great club removed from the premier league competition, the Rabbitohs now have a serious football team and are a real chance at winning a premiership.
