The departures of Aaron Gray (Cronulla Sharks) and Bryson Goodwin (Leigh Centurions) had been announced earlier in the season, with both already signing with new clubs for 2018.

While Toby Rudolf, Brett Greinke, Luke Kelly, Anthony Cherrington and David Tyrrell will also finish their time with the Rabbitohs at the season’s end.

  1. Really disappointed to see the loss of Bryson Goodwin – class player in my opinion. Also I’m disappointed that Anthony Cherrington never really got a chance in first grade – highlights from last year were immense. Could’ve had potential.

    • Bryson Goodwin has been a standout player all year . . . Im surprised another NRL club such as the Tigs didn’t have a crack at him. Waste of talent in the UK.

  2. Goodwin was offered a contract by Souths… He chose to play a couple of years in England..
    Fully agree has been very solid throughout his stay at Redfern, will be missed.
    Enjoy Europe bud..

  3. Hope Gosiewski & Sutton are offered contracts, would like to particularly see Gosiewski have a couple of injury free seasons.

  4. I am hardly surprised and expected that these players are NOT to be re-signed.
    Every single player on that list is on my own list 2 months or more ago!
    Souths have 27 players signed up in total, NOT just the 25 listed on this site.
    In our Top Squad plus a few younger guys on development contracts.

    Adam Doueihi 2019 a 5/8 is not mentioned on this site.
    Tyrone Taukamo 2019, a winger is also not mentioned.
    We have about 6 other youngsters also not mentioned on this site but it is not confirmed if they will be in the Top 30.
    Most likely they will be on development contracts.

    2018 NRL Squads will be 30 Players PLUS 6 youngsters on development type contracts.
    Sutton and Gosiewski will be retained so that gives us room for 7 more players.

    • Don’t forget Jordan Mailata and Dean Hawkins from the Holden Cup. Jordan is a front rower he is 6ft 7in tall and 143kg a real monster and he is not fat he is lean and mean. Dean is a half back in the mould of Craig Field and kicks goals he is earmarked to take over from Adam.
