Following the Australia Day Challenge against the Rabbitohs the Rhinos were invited into the Souths dressing room to be presented with a gift from Russell Crowe. The American-college style jackets had been specially designed for the Rhinos with an amber L on the right chest and the Rabbitohs heritage logo the reverse. The Souths had a similar jacket but with a S on the chest. Crowe had earlier in the day been presented with his own specially commissioned Rabbitohs chopper motorcycle by the team from American Chopper and had welcomed a host of celebrities to Hodges Stadium including basketball legend Dennis Rodman and Australian golfing great Greg Norman. Speaking in the Souths dressing room, Rhinos Chief Executive Gary Hetherington said, "I would like to say a big thank you to Souths, Peter Holmes a Court and Russell Crowe for pulling together today’s game. The relationship between ourselves and Souths has been given a great lift off today. One of the many qualities the two clubs share is a passion for Rugby League and to have 12,000 Americans here today, in the rain, is a massive boost for the sport of Rugby League."
