2022 NSW Cup and Jersey Flegg Pathway Squads

22nd October 2021

The South Sydney Rabbitohs have announced their pre-season squads for the open age NSW Cup and under 21s Jersey Flegg Cup competitions leading into the 2022 pre-season training programs.

Rabbitohs Head of Elite Pathways and Player Development, Joe O’Callaghan, says 2022 will be an important development season for players in these squads. "One of the unfortunate side effects of the COVID-19 pandemic for young footballers is that they have played little Rugby League over the past two seasons," Mr O’Callaghan said. "Despite this interruption to their development, we’ve seen a strong desire in these players to continue their journey and to put in their best efforts to achieve their goals and, in turn, the Club’s goals in pathways football. We’ve made a commitment to develop players, both male and female, through our pathways program towards the NRL and we feel that we have quality players these two top male pathways teams that can develop their games further and push for NRL inclusion in the future."
