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.

  1. Great news for the club and fans, this kid has got talent. He doesn’t look like a traditional half-back, and I’m not too sure where he will play in the current team. There has been talk of him replacing Reynolds but I would rather have Reynolds in my team at the moment. He will get his chance.

  2. Glad we tied him up, I seriously thought Easts would have a crack at him, maybe they did, good judges believe he will become a very good footballer and I like the comment he made about only wanting to play with Souths, can’y buy that passion.

    He can also play centre , wing and 5/8 so there is room for both him and Reynolds in the team.

    Anybody know where woodchook is been awfully quite of late.

  3. Was a stand out in our lower grades, 16s and 18s. Can’t believe we let him slip away, yous have a good one Souths fans, congrats!

    • Keep dreaming, only team that will be sliding is your she eagles (not that you have that much further to slide). Things seem pretty rosy at brookvale with DCE, twent and the pack of lies that’s now biting them in the ar$e. You know you’ve screwed up when your making Jackson Hastings look like the victim.

      • Hee Hee. You seem very distressed tonight brissydragqueen.
        Dry your eyes. Your mascara is running.

  4. Well done Warriors.
    They were up against it with a very one sided penalty count but were just brilliant.
    This was the game of the round and should have been the prime time game instead of storm v donkeys.

  5. Great signing bunnies.. I think he’s gonna get too big to remain in the halves, see him as a edge backrower or maybe a centre (will simply depend on pace or how effective he can tackle), kid can play and will develop nicely.
