South Sydney have confirmed young back Adam Doueihi has signed a contract extension that will see him remain a Rabbitoh until at least the end of the 2021 season.
The 19-year-old has played just four NRL games in his career, after making his debut in round two this season.
“I love playing for this club and with this bunch of boys. I told my manager I didn’t want to play anywhere else and he got a deal done with the Club which is fantastic,” Doueihi told rabbitohs.com.au.
“The Rabbitohs have given me my shot in first grade, I enjoy playing under ‘Seibs’ (Head Coach Anthony Seibold) and I have a ton of respect for him, I’m learning every day off the coaching staff and the senior players here at the Club and I love playing with the younger guys in the squad too.
“I was a Souths fan when I was younger and playing in the NRL has always been a dream of mine, so to do so in the red and green jersey is a dream come true.
“Now my future is sorted it’s my job to concentrate on my footy and to do my job for the team each and every week.
“I’m excited and my family are excited and I can’t wait to get out there and represent South Sydney in front of our Members and fans.”
The youngster played for Lebanon during the 2017 Rugby League World Cup, and rejected offers from a number of League and Union clubs to stay with South Sydney.
