South Sydney have announced the signing of 19-year-old fullback Steven Marsters for season 2020.

Marsters has played his fair share of representative matches at such a young age, playing for the New Zealand under 18s back as early as 2016 before graduating to the Junior Kiwis in years 2017 and 2018.

The New Zealander made his senior debut when he represented Cook Islands against South Africa in a World Cup Qualifying match this June.

The cousin of New Zealand international Esan Marsters, the youngster has already developed his skills training with St George Illawarra Dragons and Illawarra Steelers recently.

Weighing in at 99 kg and 183 cm, Marsters turns 20 in October this year – and will be ready for his NRL debut with the Rabbitohs next year. Rabbitohs General Manager of Football Shane Richardson is excited by the possibility of adding Marsters.

“We’re delighted to be able to give Steven an opportunity to play for South Sydney next season,” said Richardson.

“Steven is a talented fullback who can play in other positions in the backline and he will add to our depth in the outside back.

“He has already represented at the international level in both junior and senior football and, at only 19 years of age, we’re looking forward to seeing him further develop his game towards an NRL debut.”

  2. Good job Marsters!! Clearly there was no love felt by our imposter of a coach and you were never going to get a run. Let a professional coaching staff nurture you and watch you go when your chance comes next year. Another potential talent fu**ed over by McDrinky and his piss poor coaching staff 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

  3. Saints wil be disappointed to lose the young rep star in the making.

    Souths have no moral and never seem to stop poaching talent and established players since the end of last season.

    What has hapened to this club. Russell Crowe has got an endless supply of income and his destroying them it seems.

  4. The Rabbits are starting to look a lot like the French Dressed Chickens. Just keep buying players all the time. What happened to ‘The Juniors’ producing their players? It’s less & less of that as time goes by.

  5. Transit lounge at it again?
    What happened to all your juniors? Raiding others for skeletor’s destiny. ……..

  6. Souths are a ruble of their previous proud history. This is tyical of a Bennett coached club.

  7. Souths have their own Canterbury Cup team, unlike Sharks-Newtown, Easts-Norths etc and have to sign some players. There are not enough juniors of good quality to fill up a competitive team.

  8. Obviously there aren’t enough in South’s area Chalky.
    Take a look at their Canterbry Cup Team. The majority of the players in that team aren’t local juniors either.

  9. Chalky should not get to excited, North Sydney was their Canterbury cup team for a few seasons, then Crowe decided to resurrect Souths in that grade, now he is buying Souths a Canterbury Cup as well as a Nrl trophy.

  10. SuperCoach will probably now reward Maranta an upgrade considering his wonderful coaching ability and great eye for talent…lol

    Just another string to the imposters bow…
