When the National Rugby League thought they could jettison the Rabbitohs to streamline their competition they were in for a shock. South Sydney, a proud club that had won more premierships than any other, wouldn't lie down. This play is a verbatim piece about the battle to overturn the decision. Based on extensive interviews with both public faces of the campaign and grassroots supporters. This is a story of passion and politics that goes beyond football.

Their battle through the courts, and in the streets of Sydney, captured the imagination of the wider population as they successfully fought to regain the right to play league football at the top level.

Rabbit Maranville was the Joe Garagiola of Grandpa's day, the baseball comedian of the times. In a twenty-four-year career from 1912 through 1936, Rabbit found a lot of funny situations to laugh at, and no wonder: he caused most of them himself. Few fans alive today have had the privilege of sitting down for a few beers with the Rabbit and listening to him spin his tales. But fortunately for us, a year before his death in 1954, Rabbit reached back forty years into his memory and put his stories down on paper after the urging of his daughter and Max Kase, former sports editor of the New York Journal-American, who had employed Maranville in a public relations position. Unfortunately, Maranville did not finish his autobiography before he died. For decades the tales rested, virtually unread, until the Graber brothers, Dallas and Ralph, discovered the manuscript inconspicuously offered for sale by a memorabilia dealer and bought it, rescuing it for all future fans to enjoy. The book also includes an introduction by the late baseball scholar Harold Seymour and historian Bob Carroll wraps up the book with a historical account of Maranville's life and Hall-of-Fame career. Fifteen rare photos from the Hall of Fame library and some from private collectors are also included. SABR originally published the book in paperback in March 1991. Now, 20 years later, the Society is bringing it back with both paperback and Kindle editions.
Rabbit, Run is the book that established John Updike as one of the major American novelists of his—or any other—generation. Its hero is Harry “Rabbit” Angstrom, a onetime high-school basketball star who on an impulse deserts his wife and son. He is twenty-six years old, a man-child caught in a struggle between instinct and thought, self and society, sexual gratification and family duty—even, in a sense, human hard-heartedness and divine Grace. Though his flight from home traces a zigzag of evasion, he holds to the faith that he is on the right path, an invisible line toward his own salvation as straight as a ruler’s edge.
