Nathan Peats
Young guns re-signed

The South Sydney Rabbitohs are delighted to announce two-year contract extensions for David Tyrrell, Chris McQueen and Nathan Peats.

Tyrrell, McQueen and Peats have performed strongly this year and have earned extensions of their contracts until the end of the 2013 season.

Tyrrell, 22, joined the Rabbitohs in 2008 from the Easts Tigers in Brisbane, and will play his 30th NRL game this Monday against the Panthers. Tyrrell has played in nine of the Rabbitohs’ ten matches this year, proving to be a reliable option in the Rabbitohs’ forward pack.

McQueen, 23, joined South Sydney in 2009 and despite an injury-interrupted NRL career to date, has proven valuable in the outside backs or the back row for the Club.

Peats, 20, is a South Sydney junior who graduated to the Rabbitohs full time squad this season after captaining the South Sydney Toyota Cup side to the Grand Final last year. Peats made his debut in the Rabbitohs’ victory over the Sea Eagles in round four this season.

Rabbitohs CEO Shane Richardson says this is a great reward for hard work for these three players.
