Rabbitohs Head Coach Michael Maguire says that the hooking combination of Issac Luke and Nathan Peats will play an important role in the success of his side this year.


In speaking to AAP for nrl.com, Maguire says the two Rabbitohs rakes are key figures on his side for 2013.


"Issac grew and evolved as a player last year and we were all happy to see that," Maguire told AAP.


"And (this pre-season) I have really enjoyed watching Nathan Peats develop.


"He has been outstanding in training and I expect him to continue that through the trials and into the season."
