Bennett joins as Head Coach for 2019

2nd December 2018

Coach Bennett had already signed a deal to join the Rabbitohs in 2020 on a two-year contract, which is now extended to a three-year agreement including Season 2019, after the recent departure of Anthony Seibold.

"I'm really pleased it's all resolved and that I can join this great Club with a free mind, knowing I did the right thing by the fans, staff and players," Bennett said. "I'm really looking forward to being at South Sydney and working with the players, staff, Board and all of the Members. It's a wonderful Club, South Sydney, and I feel privileged to have the chance to coach this team."

Rabbitohs General Manager of Football, Shane Richardson, is very happy to have Bennett on board for the coming season. "Wayne is ready to go for 2019 and we're ready for him to start his tenure with us," Mr Richardson said. "Everyone is really excited about the season ahead and we're sure it will be a great year for our Members and supporters."
