Rabbitohs NYC players Tulsa Saumamao and Sam Manuleleua have today been added to New Zealand’s Junior Kiwi’s squad.
Both players played integral roles in the Rabbitohs’ NYC season in 2014 - Saumamao as a versatile utility, while Manuleleua plied his trade on the wing.
Both players will now take their place in the Kiwis’ as yet to be finalised squad as they prepare for their Test against the Junior Kangaroos on October 18.
The Junior Kangaroos’ Train-On Squad also boasts a Rabbitohs player, in the form of NYC Captain, Cameron McInnes.

Nelson Asofa-Solomona (Melbourne Storm)
Herman Ese’ese (Canterbury Bulldogs)
Jahrome Hughes (Gold Coast Titans)
