After becoming the first Rabbitoh to play 300 NRL games, John Sutton’s career could extend into a 16th season, with both Sutton and South Sydney nearing a deal to see the 33-year-old go around again.
According to wwos.nine.com.au, only salary cap issues stand in the way of Sutton’s re-signing, with the club needing to find room on their books to keep the veteran around.
Rabbitohs coach Anthony Seibold says he wants to keep Sutton around, given he’s played a part in the Bunnies’ rise up the table in 2018.
“From my point of view, I’d like him to play on and Sutto would like to play on,” Seibold said.
Despite falling to the Tigers 22-6 in his 300th, Sutton ran for 155 metres (the second most in the game), and laid 24 tackles.
