After a long tenure with the South Sydney Rabbitohs, Jason Clark will make the move to England and play for the Warrington Wolves.
The move was made official with Clark signing a 2-year deal with the English Super League side.
Clark was the first captain of the Rabbitohs NYC side back in 2008 and made his NRL debut in 2009.
Since then, he has played all of his 157 games for the cardinal and myrtle of the Rabbitohs.
Although he is excited at what lies ahead, Clark is focused on the rest of the season with the Rabbitohs.
“I’m glad to have my contract organised with Warrington and I’m looking forward to the next chapter in my career over in England, but first we have a job to finish here at Souths,” Clark said.
“The past 11 seasons have been a young boy’s dream come true.
“All I’ve done is wear the red and green, and following discussions with Steve Price, Simon Moran and Karl Fitzpatrick, I’ll be able to extend my career in the primrose and blue of Warrington.”
Clark likened the history of Warrington to Souths and looks forward to playing alongside former team-mate Bryson Goodwin.
“Warrington is a similar club to us here at Souths,” Clark continued.
“They have a long and rich history which is something that attracted me to the Club.
“I’ll also be able to team up with (former Rabbitohs team mate) Bryson Goodwin and his family which is exciting for me, my wife Lauren and my three daughters Milla, Andi and Billie.”
Clark also thanked Souths, all the staff and the fans for everything they have done for him during his time at the club.
“I can’t thank everyone connected with the Club enough for the opportunities I have been given to play for this team,” the veteran utility said.
“I want to thank all of my team mates, coaches, the staff and management, sponsors and of course our brilliant Members for all of their support over the years, including everyone from Souths Juniors and those who helped me become an NRL footballer.
It means so much to me and my family.”
Such has been the loyalty of Clark and the admiration by fans; he will be welcome back to take up a role once his playing career is done.
“Jason has been simply an outstanding club man, always giving his best and always with a smile on his face,” said Souths General Manager of Football, Shane Richardson.
“He will be welcomed back to the Club in some capacity in the future when he finishes his playing career.
“Warrington is a great club and they have signed a quality player and human being.”
