Justin Hunt

He only made his debut 2 weeks ago, but the South Sydney Rabbitohs have acted swiftly to secure his services – re-signing utility back Justin Hunt, for a further two seasons.

The new deal will see Hunt remain at the Bunnies until the end of the 2014 NRL season, with the 23-year old pleased to have re-signed with the club.

“I’m just stoked to have the opportunity to stay at the Rabbitohs,” Hunt said.

“The Club’s awesome, I love the place, and the players and coaching staff are a big part of that.

“Pa played for Souths and it’s great to be able to follow in his footsteps at this Club.

“I’m just really grateful for the opportunity Souths have given me and I’ll be giving my all for the Club every chance I get to pull on the jersey.”

Michael Maguire, Souths coach, says that the contract extension for Hunt, is a testament to his talents and effort, since his debut.

“Justin is an exciting young player with genuine speed, and we’ve really seen the gains in his game this year as he gets opportunities to play with quality players around him,” Coach Maguire said.

“He’s persisted with his career and he’s taken his opportunity here at the Rabbitohs with both hands and it’s paying dividends for him and the Club.

“He’s enthusiastic and always happy, and he’s a great character to have around the team.

“We’re all looking forward to working with him for at least the next two-and-a-half years.”
