Denton apologises to club fans

High-profile South Sydney supporter Andrew Denton has publicly apologised to the National Rugby League club's fans following his on-air spat with Rabbitohs chairman George Piggins.

Denton posted a letter on the club's website yesterday afternoon, only hours after he and Piggins traded verbal blows on a Sydney radio station.

The media identity is part of a ticket led by club lawyer Nick Pappas which is running against Piggins at next week's football club elections. Things between he and Piggins became heated after the Souths chairman accused Denton of supporting a merger when the club was in exile.

Denton says he's sorry for the public altercation and says he would be willing to shake hands with Piggins.
