South Sydney Rabbitohs full-back Latrell Mitchell has signed a new deal that will see him stay at the club until at least the end of 2023.

The 23-year-old joined the Rabbitohs from Sydney Roosters ahead of the 2020 campaign, making 14 appearances for the club to date.

Mitchell has won four caps for Australia, played four State of Origin matches for New South Wales and represented the Indigenous All Stars on four occasions. He has won two NRL premierships since making his first grade debut in 2016.

He said: “I’m really happy about staying here at Souths. It’s become home for me and my family.

“I feel like we have a great squad of players here and top coaches and I’m really confident that we can achieve what we want to achieve in the coming seasons.

“It’s a special club and a special group of players and it means a lot to me and my family to represent South Sydney.

“The members and the community have welcomed us and when they tell me they are proud to see me wearing their colours, it makes me feel proud to represent them.

“We want to create more history for this club and its people and I can’t wait to be part of it.”

Mitchell has scored 69 tries in 110 NRL appearances to date.
