Kyle Turner

The South Sydney Rabbitohs have announced the re-signing of premiership-winning and Indigenous All Stars back rower Kyle Turner until the end of the 2017 season today.

Turner, 23, has played 30 NRL matches since making his first grade debut against the Tigers at ANZ Stadium in round three, 2014.

Turner represented the Indigenous All Stars in 2015, where he sustained a neck injury which kept him on the sidelines for most of the 2015 season. Turner worked hard and fought back to return to the Rabbitohs NRL side in round 21 of this year, after having disc-replacement surgery in his neck.

Turner is one of a number of talented youngsters in the Rabbitohs squad, alongside team mates such as Adam Reynolds, George Burgess, Thomas Burgess, Luke Keary, Alex Johnston, Dylan Walker, Chris Grevsmuhl and Cameron McInnes, all of whom are under 25 years of age.

Rabbitohs Head Coach Michael Maguire is delighted to see Kyle extend his stay with the Club.

“Kyle has been an inspiration to not only his team mates and the staff here at the Rabbitohs, but to the Members and the community as well,” Coach Maguire said.
