Rabbitohs sign CJ Mundine for Seasons 2020 and 2021 The South Sydney Rabbitohs are excited to announce the signing of young back CJ Mundine to a two-year deal which will see him wear the cardinal and myrtle jersey until at least the end of the 2021 season.
Mundine, 18, is a Dragons junior having played two seasons with St George’s SG Ball outfit in 2018 and 2019, before shifting to Souths Juniors club, the Matraville Tigers, where he played alongside his father, Anthony Mundine in the A-grade competition.
Mundine is a five-eighth or fullback, with the Rabbitohs seeing him as an exciting fullback option with a bright future, according to Rabbitohs General Manager of Football, Shane Richardson. “CJ is an outstanding prospect and we’re delighted to know he will be learning his trade at South Sydney,” Mr Richardson said. “He has shown plenty of promise in the junior representative grades, he had plenty of interest from other NRL clubs for his services, and we couldn’t be happier to see him pick the Rabbitohs as his club of choice for his career development moving forward.
“He comes from a great pedigree with his father and grandfather both being fantastic athletes in Rugby League and Boxing, and he has been brought up with great values in a strong family. “We’re looking forward to seeing him develop in our system initially with our championship-winning under 20s squad and to see him live The Rabbitoh Way.”
