Jai Arrow Signs for 2021-24
6th Jan 2020
The South Sydney Rabbitohs are excited to announce the signing of Queensland State of Origin representative Jai Arrow on a four-year contract which will see him join the Rabbitohs for the 2021 season until at least the end of the 2024 season. Arrow, 24, has played four State of Origin matches for Queensland over the past two seasons and has played in 62 NRL matches since making his debut for the Brisbane Broncos in 2016. Arrow has also represented the Australian Prime Minister’s XIII against Fiji this year, Australia in the Rugby League World Cup Nines and is regarded as one of the best young forwards in the game.
Rabbitohs General Manager of Football, Shane Richardson, said Arrow is a quality signing for South Sydney. “He has worked with Wayne (Bennett) previously at the Broncos and he has developed into a State of Origin player, but we see him being able to push for further honours in the green and gold in coming years and we couldn’t be happier that he will be pursuing those goals whilst playing his NRL football with Souths. During our discussions with him about football and life outside of football he has shown great maturity and a willingness to live by The Rabbitoh Way. He was chased by a number of NRL clubs but he has made the Rabbitohs his club of choice from 2021.”
