The South Sydney Rabbitohs wish Keebra Park State High School's male team the best of luck in their match against Wavell High at Southport Tigers today and for the entire season ahead. We also look forward and wish the best of luck to the female team starting their season next week. This marks a significant milestone as both the male and female teams of Keebra Park State High School will be representing the Rabbitohs for the first time.

This partnership is a crucial step in building a strong rapport with the students of Keebra Park State High School, with a view to fostering future Rabbitohs players. The partnership aligns with the Rabbitohs' aim to extend their elite male and female pathways into south-east Queensland, enhancing the club's reach and development programs.


Keebra Park State High School, renowned for its Rugby League academies, offers an excellent platform for the Rabbitohs to nurture young talent. Students will benefit from elite development opportunities through Rabbitohs coaching staff and pathways to the South-East Queensland Elite Player Development Program. This partnership provides potential playing contracts with the Rabbitohs and community engagement opportunities under the Rabbitohs umbrella.

Keebra Park State High School has produced some of the best Rugby League talent of the past two decades including current Rabbitohs player Jai Arrow, former Rabbitohs players Ben Te'o, Benji Marshall, Jesse Arthars, Tautau Moga and Jaxson Paulo, as well as representative players such as Payne Haas, David Fifita, Reece Walsh, Zahara Temara, Moeaki Fotuaika and AJ Brimson.

"Everyone at the Rabbitohs would like to wish the Keebra Park boys and girls good luck for their forthcoming seasons. With it being the first year of our partnership, we are really excited to be on the Gold Coast to witness them kick off the season against Wavell. This partnership is really important to our pathway, as I have no doubt we will be watching some future Rabbitohs."


Peter Norman, Head of the Rugby League Academy at Keebra Park, is enthusiastic about the exclusive partnership with the Rabbitohs. “We are extremely excited to have an exclusive partnership agreement with South Sydney. Both organisations share similar values based on caring for our stakeholders and community. The exclusive nature of our agreement ensures we can continue to recruit, retain, and develop the best talent well into the future,”

“Our students now have a direct pathway to a professional sporting career with the most successful NRL club in Rugby League history, alongside access to the Rabbitohs' industry-leading health and wellbeing programs to further enhance their holistic development as well-rounded individuals.”

This partnership is not just about immediate success but about building a lasting relationship with Keebra Park, aiming to see these talented young players don the Rabbitohs jersey in the future.
