Two of the most talented prospects at the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Campbell Graham and Cameron Murray have both re-signed with the club.
The duo are a product of the club’s junior system and have new deals until the end of the 2021 season.
Establishing himself as a mainstay of the Souths pack, Murray has impressed many with his tenacity and work ethic.
“Both Cameron and Campbell have shown they have what it takes to become regular NRL players and also to perform at the highest representative levels of the game in time,” Rabbitohs General Manager of Football Shane Richardson said.
“Cameron is a workhorse and has made an impact on our team from the moment he was selected in first grade.
“His work ethic is second-to-none; he has the respect of his team mates, coaches and staff; and is a young leader among our squad.”
As for Graham, who is still eligible for U20’s, it his versatility and smooth transition to first-grade that pleases the club most.
“Campbell is still eligible for the under 20s but his efforts in the NRL have seen him earn a spot in our back line over the past 18 months,” Richardson continued.
“He can play centre and has played wing already at NRL level and we’re all excited to see what he can achieve with more full time training and more NRL experience under his belt.
The cardinal and myrtle colours run deep for Murray – his father also donned the Souths jersey – and he could not be prouder to sign a new deal.
“I’m really happy to know I’ll be here for at least the next three years, playing for the club I grew up supporting, the club my father played for and the club I was born into,” Murray said.
“This club has a very bright future and I’m really excited to be playing under the administration we have here at Souths.”
Murray is also pleased to play in front of such a vocal set of fans and is just honoured to don the Souths jersey.
“I love playing for such a large fan base and it’s great to be part of a club where our Members play such a big part in driving our success,” the young forward continued.
“It’s a special place and I fell privileged to be part of it.”
All those sentiments and more were echoed by Graham.
“I definitely see my future here at this club,” Graham said.
“I’m really happy with my progression over the past few seasons and I’m really grateful for the opportunities the Club has provided for me to start my career.
“There are definitely exciting times ahead and I can’t wait to play my part in that for my team and the Members.”
