In what was a major priority for the Bunnies, the process took quite some time, after Luke had a bit of a public verbal tiff with his managers, the Orr brothers, but all seems to be sorted now.
Luke, who can be described as the key player to the Bunnies team, excelled both for Souths last year, as well as for NZ in the Four Nations, is looking forward to playing with the Bunnies for years to come.
â€œIâ€™m really happy about re-signing with the Rabbitohs and to be here for four more years is a dream come true,â€ Luke said.
â€œIâ€™ve said before that playing with my brothers every week is what I love, and I regard South Sydney as my home.
â€œIâ€™d like to thank the Members of the Club and the sponsors for their support and patience as weâ€™ve been working on this contract and I canâ€™t wait to represent you all this season and for the next four years as well.â€
Shane Richardson, Souths CEO is also very pleased that Luke has made the decision to extend his contract for four more seasons.
â€œIssac is one of the lynchpins in our side, a very important player in terms of the balance of our team, and weâ€™re really happy to have him on board until, at least, 2015.
â€œHe is maturing as a footballer and as a person, and as a young father it was important for him to secure his future with a Club that he knew would look after his best interests.
â€œItâ€™s great to have him on board long term alongside players such as Roy Asotasi, Sam Burgess, Greg Inglis and Fetuli Talanoa.
â€œIâ€™m sure our Members and Corporate Partners will be as excited as we are to have Issac locked in for the next four years.â€
