South Sydney Leagues Club chairman George Piggins confirmed after a board meeting he'll take his opponents to court in order to get a recount of the club's privatisation vote.

Piggins opposed the bid from millionaire businessman Peter Holmes a Court and Oscar winning actor Russell Crowe, who were bidding for a 75 per cent stake in the Rabbitohs.

Earlier this month, the resolution was passed by a narrow margin.

Seventy five per cent of the club's members had to vote in favour of privatisation for it to pass with the final figure coming in at 75.8 per cent.

Following the defeat, Piggins and his supporters claimed irregularities in the ballot.

Voting member Alex Pavlov claimed his proxy vote, originally given to the no camp, was actually cast as a yes vote.
