Hollywood star Russell Crowe could be heading to St Helens for the World Club Challenge next month.

The Gladiator actor’s beloved South Sydney Rabbitohs are set to take on Saints at Langtree Park on February 22.

The 50-year-old Aussie, star of a string of blockbusters including LA Confidential, A Beautiful Mind, Les Miserables and Master and Commander, co-owns the NRL champions.

And he cheekily suggested that fans of other Super League sides show their support for South Sydney.

Crowe tweeted: “Aiming to be at St Helens for the WCC, will fans of other ESL teams don the red and green and turn up for South Sydney?”
