Privatisation campaign gathers

Media personalities Andrew Denton and Don Lane will be among a high-profile group of supporters backing Peter Holmes A Court and Russell Crowe's privatisation bid for South Sydney today.

Souths members will hold an extraordinary general meeting on Sunday to decide whether to accept the $3 million bid for 75 per cent of the NRL club. A pro-bid function will be held this morning at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney.
