WE MAY have found the South Sydney Rabbitohs’ number one fan right here in Bega.

Born in Bega in 1921, 93-year-old Rhona Jeffries has been a fan of the Bunnies since she was 14.

She started following them in 1935 because they were the same red and green colours as the Bega football club at that time.

Over the years, Rhona has collected a wide range of Souths memorabilia that is now scattered through all the rooms of her Bega home.

Obviously Rhona is very excited about the upcoming grand final between Souths and the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs on Saturday.

When asked what she will be doing when the game is on, she replied, “I'll be sitting here and watching the game with a stubby of beer. In fact, I might even have two!

“Go the Rabbitohs!"

Who are you barracking for this weekend? Send us your grand final selfie to kim.treasure@fairfaxmedia.com.au to be included in our fan photo gallery.
