Dynamic half leaves Souths to join fierce rivals the Roosters

Luke Keary

Linked with a move for some months now, the search and wait for Luke Keary is over, with the dynamic South Sydney Rabbitohs half signing a deal with the Sydney Roosters.

Signing a 2-year deal with the Tricolours may not please all Souths fans given their intense rivalry but it was made clear some time ago that change was coming.

Keary’s departure was a part of that change and despite knowing that he will not be there next year, the young half wants to finish the season strongly.

“I want to thank all of the Rabbitohs’ Members and fans for their support of me and the team over the past few years,” Keary said.

“I’ve created some fantastic memories at this Club and made some life-long friendships as well.

“There is still a job to be done this season and I will be giving my all every time I get the opportunity to wear the Rabbitohs jersey.”

With Keary at the club for just a few short months now, Souths coach Michael Maguire looks forward to working with him during that time.

“Luke has grown as a player and a person within our Club during his time with the Club and he’s enjoyed some great success with this team,” Coach Maguire said.

“He’s committed to finishing this season off with us by putting in his best effort each time he represents the Club, he’s helped create some great memories here, and we wish him the best of luck with his future career from the end of the season.”

Many Roosters fans are questioning just where Keary will fit in but the club are pleased to have him on board for two seasons.

“Luke is a gifted playmaker who will add depth and experience to our squad, and we see him taking his game to the next level at the Roosters,” said Sydney Roosters Recruitment Manager, Peter O’Sullivan.

“We are pleased to have secured Luke’s services and look forward to him joining our Club in 2017,” he added.
