The South Sydney Rabbitohs are excited to announce the contract extension of forward Hame Sele until at least the end of the 2023 season.
Sele, 24, has played 29 NRL matches for the South Sydney Rabbitohs, St George Illawarra Dragons and Penrith Panthers since making his first grade debut for the Dragons against the Sea Eagles in 2017, also representing City Origin in that 2017 season.
Sele can cover a number of positions in the forwards and has proven that he has the ability to perform strongly on a consistent basis at the NRL level this year.
Sele says he has found a home here at the Rabbitohs.
“The guys here, the players and staff, have really welcomed me and I’m honoured to be able to call the Rabbitohs home,” Sele said.
“I’m really grateful for the opportunity I’ve been given here, going from having nothing at the end of last season to be signing on for this year and then the next three after that.
“We haven’t been able to play in front of many of the Members this year so I look forward to getting out in front of them in the years ahead.
“I’m really proud to call myself a South Sydney Rabbitohs player.”
Rabbitohs Head of Football, Mark Ellison, is delighted to know that Hame will be with the Club for at least the next three seasons.
“Hame has been a welcome addition to our pack this year and we’re really excited about extending his contract here at Souths,” Mr Ellison said.

“He has consistently been one of our best performers throughout this 2020 season and his attitude around the Club along with his on-field performances have earned him this contract extension.
“We feel that he still has improvement in his game and under Wayne (Bennett) and Jason (Demetriou) we will see him realise that potential.
“This is great extension for both us and Hame and we’re all looking forward to working with him over the next three-and-a-half seasons.”
