Rabbitohs sign a youngster and re-sign a talented hooker

Chris Grevsmuhl

Strengthening the young brigade of stars coming through the ranks is essential for any NRL side and the South Sydney Rabbitohs have acted on it, signing North Queensland Cowboys back-rower Chris Grevsmuhl on a 2-year deal and re-signing boom youngster Cameron McInnes on a 2-year deal.

Grevsmuhl, who made his debut with the Cowboys as as schoolboy, played in 53 games for the Townsville club and has represented the QLD U20’s Origin side twice – in 2011 and 2012 – and has also played for the Junior Kangaroos in 2012.

To add to that and to his representative achievements – illustrating how highly touted he is – Grevsmuhl was also a member of the Australian Schoolboys side in 2010 and of the QLD U18’s and U16’s teams when he was coming through the ranks.

In regards to Souths re-signing, it is one that fans can be pleased with, as talented hooker Cam McInnes – who enjoyed a stellar season in 2013 for the NYC side – has also decided to stay on with the club.

Named in the 2013 Holden Cup team of the year, Souths coach Michael Maguire has high hopes for McInnes down the track and is well aware of his ability.

“Chris has been a player we’ve kept our eye on for some time now and we’re really pleased to have him join the Club next season,” Maguire said.

“He’s been performing well at the under 20s level over a number of seasons and also has experience playing at Queensland Cup level, so we’re looking forward to him joining us in the pre-season and helping him achieve his goals of playing in the NRL.

“Cameron has been one of our stand out players in the under 20s side this year, and he knows that with continued hard work and dedication to his role, he gives himself the best chance to make it into the first grade squad in the coming years.

“His efforts were recognised with his selection in the Holden Cup Team of the Year and we’re looking forward to working more closely with him to develop his game and progress him towards an NRL berth.”
