Suluka_Fifita Returns for Season 2023-25
13th Jun 2022
The South Sydney Rabbitohs are delighted to announce the homecoming of South Sydney junior and front row forward Daniel Suluka-Fifita until at least the end of the 2025 season. Suluka-Fifita, 22, has played 19 NRL matches for the Roosters since making his debut as a 20-year-old against the Titans in 2020. Suluka-Fifita, a Matraville Tigers junior, was a member of the South Sydney SG Ball Cup and Harold Matthews Cup squads between 2014 and 2017, playing alongside current Rabbitohs stars Cameron Murray and Campbell Graham.
Rabbitohs Head of Football, Mark Ellison, says Suluka-Fifita will add size and strength to the Rabbitohs’ forwards rotation from next season. "It’s great to be able to bring a South Sydney junior back into the fold and we’re really looking forward to having Daniel return home next season," Mr Ellison said. "We were disappointed to lose him back in 2018 as we saw a bright future for him in the red and green, so it’s wonderful to know that he sees his future at the Rabbitohs. He’s a big body, very strong defensively, runs hard, and is skillful – everything we’re looking for to complement the middle forwards we have currently at our Club. He’s a young dad with his best football in front of him, we wish him the best for the remainder of this season and we can’t wait to see him in red and green once again for the 2023 pre-season."
