The South Sydney Rabbitohs are delighted to announce the signing of forward Vincent Leuluai for the 2018 season, adding further depth to the Rabbitohs’ forward pack for the upcoming season.
Leuluai, 22, joins the Rabbitohs from the Melbourne Storm having played four NRL games since making his NRL debut for the Roosters in 2016.
Leuluai represented the Australian Schoolboys in 2013, is known for his high work rate and solid physique and has shown his leadership qualities as captain of the Roosters’ under 20s side in 2015.
Rabbitohs Head Coach Anthony Seibold is delighted to have Leuluai joining the squad for next season.
“Vincent comes to us after stints in two good systems at the Roosters and the Storm so he understands what it takes to play in the NRL,” Coach Seibold said.
