Greg Inglis, Sam Burgess and John Sutton all ended their outstanding careers at Redfern in 2019, a void most clubs would struggle to fill.
But in Latrell Mitchell, the Bunnies signed the most sought after and intriguing player available heading into the new campaign.
Shifting to his preferred position of fullback, Mitchell has already been under intense scrutiny and has spoken fondly of his short time with coach Wayne Bennett to date.
Adam Reynolds is the new skipper and coupled with Damien Cook, Cody Walker, Cameron Murray and Mitchell, the talent is there for a Souths team aiming to go at least one step better than their twin preliminary finals appearances over the past two seasons.

South Sydney Rabbitohs history
South Sydney snapped an agonising 43-year premiership drought back in 2014. That extended their record total of titles to 21. But hopes of a new dynasty failed to materialise.
They missed the play-offs in 2016 and 2017. They then fell one game short of another grand final appearance over the past two seasons as rivals the Roosters snared back-to-back titles.
Master coach Wayne Bennett came to South Sydney with only one target in mind – to lead this club back to glory. If they have a good run with injuries and Mitchell can manage a consistent output, they should be among the contenders once more.
