Cameron Murray is back for the Rabbitohs

South Sydney forward Cameron Murray has signed a contract extension that will see him stay at the club until the end of 2025.

The 22-year-old has made 62 NRL appearances for the Rabbitohs since making his first-grade debut in 2017. He has played three games for New South Wales and has earned one cap for Australia.

Murray said: “It’s very exciting for me and a great relief to have a large chunk of my future sorted now, and to know it will be at this club that I love is very special for me and my family.

“I count my lucky stars at how everything has fallen into place and I have no intention of letting this go or slackening off. It means way too much to me, to play for this club and to represent it every day.

“For almost the next six years at least I will be a Rabbitoh and the journey is really only just starting for me.

“It’s very exciting and I can’t wait to represent our members on the field once again, starting this Friday night against the Roosters.”

Rabbitohs head of football, Mark Ellison, commented: “I’ve watched Cameron play since he was five years of age. He never ceases to amaze me.

“He comes from a great family, has strong values, is already working on his life after football and is very focussed on being the best person, as well as footballer, that he can be every day.

“He has worked very hard to get to the position he is in now and the next challenge for him is to become the leader we all know he can be, as well as to cement himself in the New South Wales and Australian representative sides.

“We’re very happy to have finalised Cameron’s contract extension, as I am sure our members and supporters are as well.”
