Souths re-sign promising utility

Paul Carter

By the admission of some Souths fans, they have a love-hate relationship but there is no denying that Paul Carter is a talented and versatile player.

His efforts at the club have not gone unnoticed, with the utility re-signing at Souths until the end of the 2018 NRL season.

Playing in 35 NRL games to date – 14 of which have come with the Rabbitohs – Carter has made an immediate impression, covering hooker, back-row and lock during his career so far.

The club could not be more pleased to retain him, with coach Michael Maguire praising his efforts since joining the club.

“Paul has worked very hard on and off the field and he is starting to see the benefits of this,” Coach Maguire said.

“His growth as not only a Rugby League player, but as a man as well, has been a pleasure to see and he’s committed to working on all areas of his game to make sure he makes the most of his opportunities.

“He provides us with options in our forward pack and is a valued member of the team in the eyes of his team mates, the coaching staff and the Members of the Club.

“We’re very happy to see ‘Carts’ extending his time with us here at the Rabbitohs.”

Equally pleased is Carter himself, who is excited to spend more time in the red and green colours of South Sydney.

“I’m really excited to know that I’ll be part of the South Sydney Club for the next few years at least,” Carter said.

“The Rabbitohs gave me a chance when others wouldn’t and I want to repay that faith to the Club, my team mates and the Members and fans.”

The chance to continue working with a coach like Maguire and within a club like Souths, was a big selling point for him.

“I’m looking forward to continuing to work with ‘Madge’ and the coaching staff, as well as playing with my team mates,” Carter added.

“I’m really happy to have my future locked in and I can’t wait to get out there against the Tigers tomorrow night knowing I’ll be part of this Club for a while to come.”
