Mark Nicholls had enjoyed a new lease on life at the South Sydney Rabbitohs and has been rewarded with a new contract.

Nicholls, who has been one of the Rabbitohs’ most consistent performers has quickly become a fan favourite at the club.

Initially, somewhat of a journeyman, Nicholls has found a home in the Rabbitohs front-row rotation.

With 110 NRL games to his name, 82 of which have come for the Rabbitohs, the country boy from Leeton is a signing the club knew was a must.

“We’re really excited to have Mark staying with the Club for at least two more seasons,” Rabbitohs Head of Football Mark Ellison said.

“He embodies everything we are looking for in our front row mix. He’s a very hard worker, has a low error rate, makes good metres and makes his tackles.

“He is one of the most reliable front-rowers in the game.”

Ellison also praised Nicholls’ leadership skills and his work ethic.

“He’s a senior player with leadership skills amongst our group and is a fantastic example of perseverance and determination to succeed,” Ellison continued.

“We couldn’t be happier to have Mark staying with our Club and we see his best football still being in front of him.”

Nicholls himself is pleased to continue his future at the Rabbitohs.

“The last few years have been amazing for me and my family, both in terms of my footy and away from the field,” Nicholls said.

“I love this Club and everything it does for me and my family. It’s an honour to wear the red and green.”
