South Sydney will play a testimonial match for 2014 premiership captain and NRL veteran John Sutton.

The Rabbitohs' most capped player is in his 16th and final year with the club.


Souths will commemorate Sutton's 310-game career when they take on Penrith in a pre-season match on February 23 at Redfern Oval, with a percentage of the proceeds also going to charity.

"To be able to lead the team out onto Redfern will be a great honour and it's truly humbling to have the NRL and

Souths behind this game," the 34-year-old said on Saturday.

"I love this club and everything it stands for. I've been a part of some amazing South Sydney moments like the

2014 premiership and this game will be right up there with them."

Rabbitohs boss Shane Richardson said as a one-club player who had given all to his club, Sutton was a favourite son and deserving of the honour.
