The South Sydney Rabbitohs are excited to announce the immediate signing of international forward Jaydn Su’A until at least the end of the 2021 season today.
Su’A, who was granted a release from his playing contract at the Brisbane Broncos, will join the Rabbitohs immediately and will be available for selection for the South Sydney NRL squad in round 17 against the Sea Eagles.
Su’A, 21, has played 31 NRL games since making his first-grade debut against the Wests Tigers in round 12, 2016.
Su’A also made his international debut for Samoa in last weekend’s Pacific Test match against Papua New Guinea, was selected in the Queensland Emerging State of Origin squad for 2019, represented the Junior Kangaroos in both 2016 and 2017, as well as Queensland through the junior representative ranks at under 16s, under 18s and under 20s levels.
Rabbitohs General Manager of Football, Shane Richardson, is very happy to see South Sydney secure the services of one of the most talented young forwards in the game.
“Jaydn has been on our radar for over 12 months now and we’re excited to see him pull on the red and green jersey of South Sydney,” Mr Richardson said.
“He has had raps on him since making his NRL debut as an 18-year-old due to his strong work ethic and his tough defensive capabilities.
“He’s stepped up to the international stage now and I’m sure he will play a lot more representative football throughout his career.
He will add to the genuine competition for spots in our forward pack, he’s an exciting signing for our Club and I’m sure our Members are equally as keen to see him play for us as I am.
