South Sydney's Issac Luke to miss NRL grand final against Canterbury
By: Brad Walter - October 1, 2014 - Photo: James Brickwood
A shattered Issac Luke has endorsed rookie hooker Apisai Koroisau as the man to take his place in the South Sydney team for Sunday night's grand final against Canterbury after the Rabbitohs star was suspended on Tuesday night for a dangerous throw by the NRL judiciary.
Luke, who did not make any comment after the guilty verdict was handed down, will also miss New Zealand's opening Four Nations Test against Australia on October 25 after being suspended for two matches over his 38th minute tackle on Sydney Roosters forward Sonny Bill Williams in Friday night's preliminary final.
Rabbitohs coach Michael Maguire made a brief statement to the media afterwards but did not answer questions about who would replace Luke in Souths first grand final team for 43 years.
However, Koroisau is expected to start at hooker after deputising for Luke when the Kiwis star was injured for 10 weeks earlier this year and the Kiwis hooker put a post on Instagram on Tuesday night backing the Fiji World Cup representative to do well.

Rookie Koroisau thrown into the deep end
By: James MacSmith - October 1, 2014 - Picture:
Rookie Apisai Koroisau will be thrust into the cauldron of an NRL grand final in just his 14th first grade game, after "devastated" South Sydney hooker Issac Luke was rubbed out of the 2014 decider against Canterbury on Sunday.
The NRL judiciary upheld Luke's suspension for a dangerous throw on Tuesday night.
Koroisau, who will join Penrith next season, will now wear the Rabbitohs No.9 at ANZ Stadium in Souths' first grand final in 43 years.
Koroisau is a similar style of running dummy half to Luke and the 21-year-old capably filled in for the Kiwi rake earlier this season when he was sidelined with a shoulder injury.
Luke was outed due to a grade one dangerous throw on Sydney Roosters back-rower Sonny Bill Williams in the Rabbitohs 32-22 preliminary finals win over the premiers on Friday.
The 27-year-old will also miss New Zealand's opening game of their Four Nations campaign against Australia in Brisbane on October 25.

'I'd shake hands': George Piggins to bury Russell Crowe hatchet
By: Patrick Begley - October 1, 2014 - Picture: Sydney Morning Herald
South Sydney stalwart George Piggins says he would shake the hand of Russell Crowe when the former hooker attends Sunday's NRL grand final, his first appearance at a Rabbitohs game in almost a decade.
Piggins, a member of their last premiership winning team in 1971, exiled himself from the club after Crowe and businessman Peter Holmes a Court seized control in a takeover in 2006.
"It was pretty personal that fight with Crowe and Holmes a Court and that, it was pretty personal," Piggins told SKY Sports Radio on Wednesday morning.
"At some stages it all went too far."
Piggins boycotted games, resentful of Crowe and Holmes a Courts' influence on the club he had saved from bankruptcy by mortgaging his house and farm.

South Sydney Rabbitohs five-eighth Luke Keary takes notes from Matty Johns
By: Michael Carayannis - September 30, 2014 - Photo: Getty Images
Luke Keary has revealed how he has leaned on former international Matty Johns as he looked to put the anguish of a torn pectoral muscle behind him.
Johns has become a sounding board and a mentor for the South Sydney five-eighth with the pair often walking to a park near Johns' northern beaches home to drill as the five-eighths work on Keary's game.
The bond came after Keary and halfback Adam Reynolds were introduced to Johns via coach Michael Maguire. Maguire and Johns share a close relationship having spent time working as coaches in Melbourne.
Keary said Johns had helped him refocus after he was left shattered when he tore his pectoral during the Auckland Nines. "I go and have good yarns with Matty," Keary said. "When I was coming back from my pectoral I went over to his house and had a few good yarns there about footy and life. [It was mainly] just about trying to get back and get a first grade spot. He just gave me a bit of advice and I really respect him and his opinion."

Russell Crowe staying with Souths, says Rabbitohs boss
By: Chris Barrett - September 29, 2014 - Picture: Getty Images
His beloved South Sydney are on the brink of achieving their holy grail but Russell Crowe has no intention of surrendering his ownership in the club if his mission is completed with a premiership on Sunday, says the Rabbitohs boss.
The actor was only seven years old when Souths were last in a grand final and they were on the brink of going broke when he and businessman Peter Holmes a Court paid $3 million for a combined 75 per cent stake in 2006.
Two years ago Crowe alluded to a need to sell his 37.5 per cent share to "simplify" his life after splitting with wife Danielle Spencer but Rabbitohs chief executive Shane Richardson insists Crowe has never raised the subject of walking away from the club with him.
"Russell had a very emotional situation. He's poured a lot of emotion into the club as well and he was going through his challenges in life personally," Richardson said on Monday. "But Russell has never once to me indicated to me that he was going to get out. Not one time.

Unrelenting South Sydney Rabbitohs simply too good for Sydney Roosters
By: Michael Chammas - September 27, 2014 - Getty Images
They've won wooden spoons and celebrated in courtrooms, marched up streets and fallen down ladders, but after 43 years of waiting for glory, South Sydney finally have their chance.
The wait is over.
South Sydney are into the grand final.
They were banished and brought back. And even when the dream became a reality, financial woes had them on the brink of extinction.
Now they are on the brink of redemption.
At the expense of arch enemy Sydney Roosters, South Sydney overcame a horror start and a severe case of the jitters to turn their third consecutive dose of preliminary final football into a remedy for a 43-year ailment with a 32-22 victory.

Rabbitohs winger Nathan Merritt bids farewell to a stellar career
By: Chris Barrett - September 24, 2014 - Photo: Daniel Munoz
If there is anyone who knows what a premiership would mean to South Sydney, it is Nathan Merritt.
Dozens of friends and family, including his parents and five children, crammed into the Long Room at Redfern Oval on Wednesday as the club's all-time leading try-scorer announced his retirement. Outside, at the entrance to the ground on Chalmers Street, there were another hundred or so fans waiting for a glimpse of one of their favourite sons.
As the red-and-green faithful dare to dream about grand final glory, Merritt can only imagine what the scene could be like around this corner of inner Sydney in 10 days' time.
"Having just retired and having a look at the crowd today ... it was such a big turnout. If Souths won the grand final the streets would be that packed around here, going crazy," he said. "You'd see it in two weeks' time."
