Scott Geddes battled on with South Sydney after a series of injuries that would have forced most players to call it a day long before he did.

The Southern Highlands junior debuted for the Rabbitohs in their second match back from their two years in isolation in 2002 and impressed with his ability to eke out the hard yards in the middle of the ruck.

Geddes’ career was hampered by serious injuries that included ruptured ACLs (2003 and 2010) and a torn Achilles tendon (2011) but he chose to play on in 2012 despite rupturing a biceps muscle early in the season.

The blond front-rower was a witness to huge change at the Rabbitohs from the time of their reinstatement, through the club’s move to private ownership and he was a contributor to the Rabbitohs’ rise to premiership contention in 2012.

Geddes was a New South Wales representative at junior level but his injury problems proved a stumbling block to his ambitions at senior level.

Turning 32 in October, Geddes intends to devote more of his time to a growing personal fitness business.

This Sunday, Scott Geddes will play his last regular season match at ANZ Stadium when his beloved Rabbitohs play host to the Parramatta Eels on Sunday before preparing himself for his first ever Finals Series.
