The Rabbitohs have announced the signing of forward Ethan Lowe for the 2019 season.

The 27-year old joins South Sydney after 108 NRL games for the North Queensland Cowboys, making his debut in 2013 and winning a premiership with the team in 2015.

Lowe is renowned for his hard working attitude and goal-kicking prowess, boasting an 80 per cent success rate.

Rabbitohs GM Shane Richardson was delighted to make Lowe’s signing official.

β€œHe has a number of strings to bow which will benefit our squad and he is an edge back rower who will create more competition for spots in our back row throughout the season,” Richardson told the club website.

β€œHe will have an opportunity to put his best foot forward under Wayne (Bennett) here at Souths and we’re all looking forward to seeing what he can achieve in red and green.”

    • 3hats is a nitwit who tells everybody he has dinner with all the players. This may be true, the nutter πŸ₯œβ›‘πŸ₯œπŸŽ©πŸ₯œπŸ‘’ eats his potato scallops on the side line while the players train. I’ll let you in on a little secret. Don’t believe a word from three hats. Rumor has it that 3hats has the souffths naked calendar of 2019 and Ethen Lowe was not in itπŸ˜©πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ˜πŸ˜΅

    • 3 twat come one down….
      Usual talk of no everything and as per usual completely wrong… maybe rusty doesn’t love you anymore

      • Who told you that info Shadow❓❔❓❔ Let me guess, It was the captain from your 1971 20th grand final win that let you in on a little secret πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ˜πŸ€£πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚ . Pass this information on to him for me Shadow, Soufffths have just purchased their 26 import with Eathen Lowe. Could you tell that to the souffths 1971 import captain Johnny Sattler who I remember played a few years in first grade with Kurrie Kurrie up at Newcastles before he became a souffths local junior. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ˜πŸ€£πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚ Thanks Mate.

  1. I have no idea why we signed this player. I can only put my faith in the coach and hope he knows what he is doing.

    • He is solid player mate, he had a terrible season 2018 but so did half of the cows. Lowe AKA Snake (from the simpsons) was a standout in 2015.

      • He is another dud. If the Cowboys got rid of him then that is saying something. Look I believe Bennett’s ego in his old age is that he believes he is as good as Bellamy who is famous for turning rejects into superstars once again. Bennett is unable to get the best out of the best these days. Milford was a inconsistent flop under Bennett We all seen how he destroyed the overrated Birds season, even his love child Darius last season he could not get motivated and moved him to the centres for a few weeks and now he thinks he can reinvent Lowe at soufffffths.πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ˜πŸ€£πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ€‘

  2. This is a very very very good signing having douehi amone tatola knight and lowe and that ex storm player with the beard all fight it out for the bench spots will up the ante and keep the 3burgixsutto on their toes all season and bayley sirronen and kurt dillan will have to pull up their socks remarkably to even get a wiff of the bench in my opinion.

    • Amone, Parra need big forwards but they did not want this flop,
      Knight = flop 4 clubs in four years,
      Lowe released from Cowboys for poor performance=FLOP.
      George Burgess Flop,
      Sirinon Flop
      Nicholls Flop
      Kennedy Flop
      Dillon Flop
      Turner flop
      McIlwrick fifth team in five years= Flop

      Is there any one that isn’t a flop at soufffths

      souffs FLOP = πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ˜πŸ€£πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ˜†

  3. Bench: douehi lowe tatola amone! But i feel it will be out of amone/knight for the last spot on the bench exciting times 4 the pride of the league.

    • ….WoodChook wood be no good he needs a starting spot wooden you agreeπŸ’ͺπŸ”πŸ‘β€¦.But redv13 I think a bench of penz0 alias ManWar78, 3hats, Shadaw and Chalky should wrap up the wooden spoon wooden you think❓❔❓❔so.

      Ps Isn’t it a coincidence that penz0 has gone on holidays and ManWar78 is holidaying with him❓❔❓❔❓❔ Anybody noticed no posts from this one person with two accounts.

  4. If I was in charge of the Cows I would have kept this guy over signing Kahu… I know not same position but if it kept the cap in line then I would have left it as is and watched for Lowe to come right this season.

  5. My beloved South Sydney Rabbitohs have evidently taken my advise, attempting to emulate the Sydney Roosters with accuracy.

    The quandary botheration predicament is South Sydney officials, have replicated the Easts club throughout the late 1980’s, until the mid 1990’s, when they were labelled as the “Transit Lounge”. Instead of the preferably superb alternative, Hence the Sydney Roosters who are the current Minor Premiers, Premiers and World Champions.

  6. Rc its funny on here if souths tried to be like the rorters souths would be (7) premierships behind the rorters.

    • Shadow,🀑🀑🀑🀑🀑🀑🀑 here is a classic soufffths game played at Redfern Oval. You know the place you used to have your own home ground at instead of travelling into the western Suburbs of Sydney for your home ground. Bunch of NomadsπŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ€£πŸ˜†πŸ€£πŸ˜πŸ˜‚
