during the International Rugby League match between the Junior Kangaroos and the Junior Kiwis at Pirtek Stadium on May 7, 2016 in Sydney, Australia.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs have signed four of the brightest up-and-coming players in the game, signing centre Robert Jennings, second rower or centre Tyrell Fuimaono, centre Braidon Burns and halfback Connor Tracey for the 2017 and 2018 seasons.

The Rabbitohs have added size, pace, youth and pedigree with the signings of these four players, who will all join the Club for pre-season training later this year.

Jennings, 20, has played five NRL games for the Penrith Panthers since making his debut as a 19-year-old last season, and has been part of the Junior Kangaroos squad for the past two years.

Fuimaono, 20, represented the Junior Kangaroos in 2015 and 2016, played in the NSW under 20s side in 2015 and 2016, graduated to the Parramatta Eels’ full time squad in 2016 and is currently number one in running metres in the Holden Cup competition.

Burns, 20, has been one of the shining lights in the Penrith Panthers’ under 20s outfit this year, scoring five tries in a match against the Warriors earlier this season as part of his 16 tries so far this season.

Tracey, 20, is an Australian Schoolboys representative halfback who has been part of the successful junior representative system at the Cronulla-Sutherland Sharks.

Rabbitohs Head Coach Michael Maguire is keen to have these four young players join the Club next season.

“Our recruitment team has had their eyes on these four players and to be able to bring young players of this quality to our Club is fantastic for the future of the Club,” Coach Maguire said.

      • oi 3 hats deadv13-stmerge is jealous of the pride of the league the people”s team whom have won more premierships than any other team in australian rugby league history “”foreverinourshadow lol@stmerge-deadv13. no one wants to live in the gong its a dump when you walk down crown street in the heart of wollongong its like stepping back in time most of the people on the street wear flannelette shirts and ugg boots its a sad sight to behold….

      • oi 3hats deadv13-stmerge wears ugg boots and a flannellette shirt lol he knows no better he lives upstairs in the Piccadilly complex next door to the gong railway station for the derro”s poor chap…

    • redv13 not really as all teams take a chance with juniors hoping one or 2 will make it out of the four. be realistic they cant all make it.

  1. Is it just the face Robert Jennings’ is making when the camera captures him or is there something wrong with his face? Looks like he’s had a skin graph on the left side of his face??

  2. As for Jennings, Griffin has a very keen eye for young talent apparently, Penrith have had major centre issues in 2016 with Whare and Hiku both out for most of the season. They have had back rowers filling in at centre, so this doesn’t really say much for either of the Jennings brothers. They may both have been injured as well ( seems to be the norm with them both) but not to have been given a run at any stage doesn’t speak highly of their ability. I thought they were both going as a package deal anyway, seems like George isn’t what other clubs are looking for, or just too injury prone to take the risk.

  3. We just signed a halfback, does that mean Reynolds gone to Parra? maybe, f… me i hope not could not stand to see another junior lost.

    • Are you serious mate?
      Do you honestly think that Souths would replace the NSW Origin halfback with a kid who hasn’t played all year due to injury?
      A Rookie from the U20s yet to debut in the NRL,
      RIDICULOUS.

      • I’m no saying he is going just putting it out there and he did not deny it in that interview yesterday, i hope he stay’s , Russell said he wanted to buy back the farm , so far more juniors have left since he came along, but, where would we be without him

      • When Reyonds is injuried this kid can step-up plus during Origin. Thats my throught to the recruit drive.

      • 3flaps is back!

        Can you let us know if you’ve had coffee with Madge lately? Advise us all of what’s happening with your insider information.

        Basically nothing you’ve ever said has come true so even statistics say that sooner or later – something you say will.

    • I hear that this kid is only an 18yo. He will need some time to develop, and by that time Reyno might be done. I think he is signed for depth at the moment.

      • Just checked his bio, he is a 20yo. When I first heard of his signing about 6 months ago it was stated he was an 18yo. My how time flies.

    • penso perish the thought as chopper read would say, reyno is going nowhere inside info enjoy your day mate….

  4. glory glory to south sydney south sydney marches on to their 22nd premiership “”foreverinourshadow””

    • believethis are you from the gong?
      no one wants to live in the gong its a dump when you walk down crown street in the heart of wollongong its like stepping back in time most of the people on the street wear flannelette shirts and ugg boots its a sad sight to behold….
