CJ Mundine, the son of rugby league and boxing legend Anthony Mundine, has signed a two-year deal to join the South Sydney Rabbitohs in 2020.
The 18-year-old fullback or five-eighth is viewed as an exciting option for the club.
“CJ is an outstanding prospect and we’re delighted to know he will be learning his trade at South Sydney,” said Rabbitohs General Manager of Football, Shane Richardson on the club website.
“He has shown plenty of promise in the junior representative grades, he had plenty of interest from other NRL clubs for his services, and we couldn’t be happier to see him pick the Rabbitohs as his club of choice for his career development moving forward.
“He comes from a great pedigree with his father and grandfather both being fantastic athletes in Rugby League and Boxing, and he has been brought up with great values in a strong family.
“We’re looking forward to seeing him develop in our system initially with our championship-winning under 20s squad and to see him live The Rabbitoh Way.”
