Since bursting onto the scene, South Sydney Rabbitohs forward Cameron Murray has quickly become a fan favourite.
Murray, who will feature for the Rabbitohs in their round 3 clash against the Roosters, has signed a new long-term deal.
Murray’s new deal will see him remain in the cardinal and myrtle colours of the Rabbitohs until the end of 2025.
With 62 NRL games to his name – all for the Rabbitohs – Murray’s debut came back in 2017.
The local Mascot Jets junior also made his NSW debut, playing in all three games for the Blues.
Murray, the reigning Dally M Lock of the Year, made it clear that the Rabbitohs were always going to be the club for him.
“It’s very exciting for me and a great relief to have a large chunk of my future sorted now,” Murray said.
“To know it will be at this Club that I love is very special for me and my family.”
The chance to continue his Rabbitohs tenure, a club Murray has known his entire life, was an easy decision.
“I’ve grown up in South Sydney, played my first rep games as a kid in a red and green jersey, and now I get to live my dream every day representing the Rabbitohs,” Murray continued.
“I count my lucky stars at how everything has fallen into place and I have no intention of letting this go or slackening off.
“It means way too much to me, to play for this Club and to represent it every day.”
With so much ahead of him as a player, Murray looks forward to the future and what lies ahead with the Rabbitohs.
“For almost the next six years at least I will be a Rabbitoh and the journey is really only just starting for me.
“It’s very exciting and I can’t wait to represent our Members on the field once again, starting this Friday night against the Roosters.”
Mark Ellison, the Rabbitohs head of Football, praised Murray’s ability on the footy field.
“I’ve watched Cameron play since he was five years of age. He never ceases to amaze me,” Ellison said.
“Cameron is South Sydney through-and-through and we could not be happier to know he sees his long term future here with the Club.”
