Rabbitohs five-eighth, Luke Keary, has shown plenty of maturity on the pitch in just 14 first grade games, and according to the young play-maker, it all comes down to not over-playing his hand.
Now a starter in the absence of injured Captain and five-eighth, John Sutton, Keary is conscious of being over exuberant, instead opting to slot into the Rabbitohs’ line-up alongside halfback and good mate, Adam Reynolds.
“I don’t want to come in and over-play my hand,” said Keary.
“Halves can tend to come in and do that sometimes and wreck it a bit for the team. But I’m pretty conscious of that and I’m just working hard with Madge (Michael Maguire) and Reyno (Adam Reynolds).”

Coming off three consecutive wins, Keary and his side will come up against one of their biggest challenges yet this Friday night at the Sydney Cricket Ground, when they take on the first-placed Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles in a top of the table blockbuster.
Asked what the play-maker thinks it will take to knock over the Sea Eagles, Keary’s response is ‘simplicity’.
“I think it’s just simple footy,” said Keary.
“We’ve got a pretty big pack there, so we’ll try to use them and not try to over-use them – just keep it nice and simple, get our kicks right and energy around the ball.
“It’s going to be a pretty big game for us. They’re travelling pretty red-hot at the moment, it’s at the SCG too – I haven’t gotten to play there – so I’m pretty excited to have a run around there.”
