Thursday night was a night to remember for 23-year-old Trent Peoples, however not so much for the Rabbitohs’ administration.

The 32-12 loss to the hands of the Brisbane Broncos is the least of their worries amid revelations the club reportedly played Peoples on debut despite not being officially registered by the NRL.

That is according to The Daily Telegraph’s Phil Rothfield, who received confirmation from the NRL that the Salary Cap Department is looking into the oversight.

Rothfield said the Rabbitohs are facing a fine but may have been docked two competition points should they have defeated the Broncos in a “huge drama”.

“Trent Peoples who made his first grade debut at edge forward at the Rabbitohs is a train and trial player,” Rothfield told 2KY’s Big Sport Breakfast.

“Had Souths beaten the Broncos and they didn’t get anywhere near it did they but they were always a chance, they would have been deducted two competition points.

“The reason being Trent Peoples wasn’t properly registered with the NRL, Trent was stacking shelves at Woolworths during the week and he’s also a sales rep for a clothing company.

“If you’re going to use a player outside of your top 30 you’re going to need permission from the NRL and normally it’s granted particularly during these covid times when players are falling over and getting ill but they just forgot to do the paperwork.”

Peoples ran a total of 110 running metres on debut along with 24 tackles.
