The South Sydney Rabbitohs have extended the contract of Jason Clark until at least the end of the 2018 season.
Clark, 27, has played 130 NRL games for the Rabbitohs since making his first grade debut against the Dragons in 2009.
A South Sydney junior from the Coogee-Randwick Wombats club, Clark graduated through the junior representative ranks to captain the Rabbitohs’ under 20s side for two seasons before progressing to first grade. Clark represented City Origin in 2015 and was part of the Rabbitohs’ premiership-winning side in 2014.
Rabbitohs Head Coach Michael Maguire is delighted to see Clark extend his time with the Club.
“Jason is everything that represents South Sydney,” Coach Maguire said.
“He works very hard on his game, is a Member of our leadership group, is a loving family man, and is red and green to the bone.
“He is always looking at ways to improve his game and to help his team mates perform to their best every week.
“His dedication to his football is only matched by his dedication to his wife Lauren, his two daughters and the baby that’s on the way; and his parents could not be more supportive of his career and what we’re doing here at the Club.
“Jason is a true leader within this Club and it’s fantastic to have him recommit for another two seasons.”
Clark is over the moon to have his future sorted for the next two seasons.
“South Sydney is such a big part of my life so I couldn’t be happier to be extending my contract here,” Clark said.
“My whole family is South Sydney, and the boys and the coaches are like a second family to me.
“We have a lot more to achieve as a Club in the coming seasons and I’ll be doing everything I can to help us return to the levels of success we’ve enjoyed in recent years.
“We still have work to do this season, and then we can prepare for next year and beyond.”
