The South Sydney Rabbitohs are delighted to announce the signing of utility Jed Cartwright until at least the end of the 2023 season.
Cartwright, 23, made his first grade debut for the Penrith Panthers in round 17, 2019 against the Gold Coast Titans.
Cartwright, who stands 194cm tall and weighs 104kg, is equally adept in the second row and centres, and is looking for an opportunity in the NRL following an injury interrupted stint at the Panthers.
Rabbitohs Head of Football, Mark Ellison, said Cartwright is primed to take the next step in his career.
“Jed is a big body that will add size and strength to our team,” Mr Ellison said.
“As is the way with Cartwrights, he’s a creative player and we’re looking forward to helping him develop his game to a point where he can feature in our top 17 on a weekly basis. He comes from a great pedigree and a wonderful family and he fits the values we have as a club.
“In our discussions with him joining our club we know he has the right attitude to make it and we’re sure with hard work and perseverance he will put pressure on our current players for a spot in the squad from 2021.”
