Whilst the focus at the Bunnies may be centred around the likes of Greg Inglis, Adam Reynolds and Sam Burgess – it is the lesser-known players and depth players that also play a crucial role and the South Sydney Rabbitohs have recognised this, re-signing Chris McQueen, Kyle Turner and Luke Burgess for 2 more seasons.

Burgess, who some of you may know as the brother of English forward Sam Burgess, has played in more than 100 first-grade games across the NRL and ESL – 28 of them coming for the Bunnies – with Luke also an English international.

McQueen, who is one of the under-rated players of the Bunnies side, will start the year playing in his 50th NRL game and is a member of the emerging QLD Origin side.

Kyle Turner, who is just 21, is regarded as a budding prospect at Bunnies headquarters, and earned a full-time contract with the club for 2013.

The club is excited to have re-signed the trio, with head coach Michael Maguire pleased with the development that the three players made throughout last season.

“All three of these guys have been part of what we’re building at the Club, and I’m looking forward to continuing to work with them at the Rabbitohs,” Coach Maguire said.

“Both Luke and Chris have become seasoned first graders in our team, and Kyle has been developing in our junior ranks and has a shot at playing first grade this year.

“They’re all valuable members of the squad and good people, and we’re glad that we can reward them for their hard work and dedication with contract extensions.”
