Crowe to sell South Sydney

Hollywood actor Russell Crowe is set to sell the South Sydney NRL club after the 2013 season for personal reasons.

The award-winning actor turned around the Rabbitohs after purchasing the club with Peter Holmes a Court in 2006.

Crowe told Nine News rugby league reporter Danny Weidler that he wanted to simplify his life.

He is preparing for a divorce case with wife Danielle Spencer after the couple separated last month following nine years of marriage.

Crowe and Holmes a Court, who hold a 75 per cent stake in the Rabbitohs, have reportedly poured $11 million into the club. Crowe has also given the club and the NRL international exposure through his Hollywood connections.

Last season South Sydney enjoyed their best season since they were re-admitted into the competition in 2002.

The Rabbitohs reached the preliminary final, where they lost 32-8 to Canterbury.
