The South Sydney Rabbitohs are pleased to announce their 18-man squad for the Dick Smith NRL Auckland Nines to be played at Eden Park next weekend.
Former Australia, New South Wales, Country Origin and Rabbitohs player Matt King will pull on a Rabbitohs jersey for the first time since retiring in 2013 as part of the South Sydney Nines squad for this year.
King played ten Tests for Australia, nine State of Origin matches for New South Wales and three matches for Country Origin on top of his 220 appearances in the NRL and English Super League for the Rabbitohs, Storm and Warrington between 2003 and 2013.
Rabbitohs internationals Issac Luke, George Burgess, Dylan Walker and Bryson Goodwin have all been named in the squad.
Issac Luke is set to captain the red and greens for the first time on home soil in New Zealand.
The Rabbitohs are in the Waiheke pool and will play round robin matches against 2014 Auckland Nines champions the Cowboys, plus the Storm and Panthers.
