2022 Harold Matthews Cup (U17s) Trial Expressions of Interest

The South Sydney Rabbitohs are calling for expressions of interest to trial for a place in the South Sydney Rabbitohs x Souths Juniors Harold Matthews Cup under 17s squad for the 2022 season.

Inclusion in the South Sydney Harold Matthews Cup squad will give you the opportunity to represent one of the strongest pathways clubs in Rugby League in this country and give you the chance to earn a spot in the ‘Black Rabbits’ elite player development program.

Rabbitohs Head of Pathways and Player Development, Joe O’Callaghan’ said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for boys who may not already have been identified by the Rabbitohs or another NRL Club to come and show us your wares and take the next step in your Rugby League journey,”

“We’ve had a number of players that took part in last year’s trials that went on to gain not only selection in the under 17s squad, but have also extended their contracts with the Club, and have had the opportunity to work with our NRL coaches and staff in the Black Rabbitohs Elite Player Development Program.

“There is always a diamond in the rough that emerges at these trials so give yourself the chance to be that player and fill out the form with your expression of interest to be involved.”

Any boys turning 16 or 17 years of age in 2022 are eligible to apply for a place in the trials which will be held once NSW health orders allow. The health and safety of our players, staff and the community are of paramount importance to the Club.

Expressions of interest for this squad will close at 5 pm on 3 September 2021. Those who are then invited to trial will be notified by email on 10 September 2021.
