Star junior Josh Cook has signed on with the Rabbitohs for an extra two years.
The impressive hooker prospect, who turned 20 last month, has featured in multiple representative teams throughout his junior career.
In a media release, Cook said he was thrilled to remain with the Rabbitohs.
“It was a goal I set myself this year and it’s something I have strived for,” Cook told the club’s website.
“I guess there’s a sense of relief to know I’m staying at this club that I love, and I’m really excited about what is ahead for myself and for the team.
“I have an unbelievable opportunity to learn from one of the best, if not the best, hookers in the NRL in Damien Cook.
“To get the chance to train with him is fantastic and I can’t wait to learn more from him over the coming seasons.”
South Sydney general manager of football Shane Richardson praised Cook in a media release.
“He’s a very hard worker, he’s shown all the traits of a future NRL player, he’s a proud South Sydney junior from La Perouse and we’re looking forward to seeing Josh continue his development in the red and green of South Sydney,” Richardson told the club’s website.
The Rabbitohs currently sit third on the NRL ladder with a 10-5 record.
