South Sydney have resigned 30 year old prop Luke Stuart for 2008. The ageless forward has played 113 first grade NRL games for the Bunnies, and reached the milestone of first Souths player to hit 100 NRL games since the South Sydney club were re-instated. The big man probably looks closer to 40 years old these days, but who could blame him – anyone involved with South Sydney in the past few years has surely aged at twice the speed.
Stuart explained how he continues to enjoy his time at Souths and the exciting prospect of finals football seems closer than in previous years.
The big positive for Luke Stuart is not only his tireless work ethic in the engine room, but in this day and age – his durability is key. While other forwards are dropping like flies – Stuart keeps on keeping on, rarely losing game time through injury.
