Team of the decade

The fullback seems a no-brainer, though clearly Merritt and Wesser have their fans (Merritt, being a Club favourite son I get, but clearly Rhys’s Mum voted).

For what it’s worthy, here’s my Rabbitohs team of the 2010s:

Greg Inglis
Alex Johnston
Dane Gagai
Campbell Graham
Nathan Merritt
Cody Walker
Adam Reynolds

George Burgess
Issac Luke
Tom Burgess
Sam Burgess
John Sutton
Cameron Murray

Dylan Walker
Luke Keary
Damian Cook
Ben Te’o

I was watching our return match against the filth from 2002 the other day. I know it’s the previous decade but wow we have come along way since then.
Nearly half our team are SOO players now. Can’t help but thank Roy and Rusty for where we are now.

I think this side is pretty set stone maybe you could make an argument about Michael Crocker but that’s it

I would have Murray in for Te’o myself

A dark horse for a centre spot could also be Latrell he will definitely be there in a couple year time

Is the decade 2010-2019 or 2011-2020?

The latter I think, raising the old debate about when a “decade” actually starts and finishes (personally I lean towards the former). In any event, I tried to limit my own selections to players who have had a significant multi-year impact at the Rabbitohs, so a year either end didn’t make much difference.

2010-2020.

It’s really hard to go past the 2014 GF team with Bully at Hooker. You could argue Cam Murray comes in for Dave Tyrell but, that team won the comp.

Merritt was a great local junior who gave all of us hope in a period when hope was pretty rare. An all time fav Souths player especially in that game where he kicked the Field Goal in the final minute to win the game. I forget who the opposition was. Great times!!
Lote had a pretty poor year but was awesome in those Final games.

Tigers at the SCG

Yes it was, the only issue was I spent most of the game watching on a TV monitor near where I was sitting due to the fact that the action seemed about 2kms away.

18 Bully - doesn’t make team bc Sutton is a utility and Cookie really 80min player. Better than Lima but need a proper bench.
19 Johnson - doesn’t appear to try as hard as ones I picked ahead of him
20 McInnes - superb player and wish he was still a rabbitoh.
21 Keary - was good
22 Merritt - a bit past it in the 10’s
23 Asotasi - like Merro.

Goodwin runs on & Suttons on the bench. Yep it’s the off season.

@TorAckmann I reckon the 2013 side was the go. A fit Michael Crocker and Roy in the side.
