The South Sydney Rabbitohs have extended the contracts of three talented South Sydney juniors, with Siosifa Talakai, Mawene Hiroti and Campbell Graham all re-signing until at least the end of the 2019 season.
Talakai, 19, is a centre or back rower who played three NRL matches in 2016, making his debut against the Gold Coast Titans in Perth in round 13. He also represented the Junior Kiwis in 2016 after graduating through the junior representative ranks where he captained the South Sydney SG Ball under 18s side to a Grand Final appearance in 2015.
Hiroti, 17, is an outside back who was an Australian Schoolboys representative in 2016, who also played in seven Holden Cup matches for the Rabbitohs after completing the SG Ball under 18s season.
Graham, 17, is also an outside back who played alongside Hiroti for the Australian Schoolboys, the Rabbitohs Holden Cup team and the South Sydney SG Ball team in 2016.
All three of these players will feature in trial matches against the Sea Eagles on Saturday night at Campbelltown Stadium, with Rabbitohs Head Coach Michael Maguire saying he is excited to see how these players perform now and how they develop into the future.
