One of the world’s finest reportedly secures his future

There was big news in the NRL this week as the South Sydney Rabbitohs announced the contract extension of one of their three stars, Australian and New South Wales representative player Damien Cook for a further two seasons this week.

Cook, 31, has played 170 NRL games including 161 matches for South Sydney since making his first grade debut in 2013.

Since joining the Rabbitohs in 2016, Damien has gone on to represent Australia in four Test matches, played 15 State of Origin games for New South Wales, as well as representing Country Origin and the World All Stars.

Cook was the Dally M Hooker of the Year in 2018 and is a two-time, back-to-back winner of the George Piggins Medal for his efforts throughout the 2018 and 2019 seasons.

In a pointer to his commitment and dedication to his young family away from the field, Damien was also awarded the Sports Dad of the Year award in 2022.

Now, it has been reported that Latrell Mitchell has joined him in securing his new deal with the Bunnies according to the Wide World of Sports.

According to the publication, he has formally agreed to a three year deal with the club to stay until at least the end of 2026.

An announcement is expected next week.

The situation around Cody Walker remains unconfirmed.
