The Last Drinks campaign against alcohol-fuelled violence today received a huge endorsement with South Sydney Rabbitohs getting behind the call for an end to the carnage and personal cost of violence on our streets and in our pubs and clubs.

Souths Captain Roy Asotasi, Nathan Merritt, Michael Crocker and Dylan Farrell all lend their voices to the Last Drinks message which aims to educate young people to look after their mates and know when to call 'last drinks'.

"It's a powerful message, aimed squarely at 18-35 year old men - the people most likely to get involved in alcohol-fuelled violence," said the NSW Police Association who is spearheading the Last Drinks campaign.

'Through the club's South Cares program, the Rabbitohs have played a positive role in community development, especially in the Aboriginal community. It's great to have the Rabbitohs now lending their support to the Last Drinks campaign,' said Scott Weber, President Police Association of NSW.

The video will be available on the Rabbitohs and Last Drinks web sites and will be shown on the big screen at the Rabbitohs' home matches. The first of these is on Sunday 20 March at ANZ Stadium (Homebush), starting at 2pm.

This is great news.,Will the Rabbitohs take the next step and stop alcohol sponsorship? Rugby league would benefit from a complete overhaul and this involves separating their sport with alcohol.Surely there are other great companies that would love the opportunity!
