Graham 2025-27 Contract Extension
17th July 2023
The South Sydney Rabbitohs are delighted to announce the three-year contract extension for Australian representative and centre Campbell Graham, until the end of season 2027 today.
Graham, 24, has played 125 NRL matches, all of which have been for the Rabbitohs, since making his first grade debut against the Dragons at the Sydney Cricket Ground in round 22, 2017. Graham, Rabbitohs first grade player number 1136, has also played two Test matches for Australia during last season's victorious Rugby League World Cup campaign, scoring five tries in those two matches. He also co-captained the Australian Schoolboys squad in 2017, represented Australia at the Rugby League Nines World Cup in 2019, and won the Rabbitohs' Jack Rayner Players' Player award last season.
Graham, a South Sydney junior from the Coogee-Randwick Wombats club, is very happy to have extended his contract at the Club for a further three seasons. "This Club really is my home and I've always felt that way. I love this Club, I love everybody involved with this Club, I feel so at home here, so it wasn't a hard decision for me to stay here and work towards winning some Premierships here over the next few years. I'm very grateful to the Club for putting their faith in me and wanting to have me here at the Club. I'm looking to pay them back with my performances for the rest of this season and the next few years as well. Over the last few seasons I've built some great relationships amongst the players and coaching staff. We've had a group of young lads coming through and I can't wait to see all of the new talent coming through to join some of the tried-and-true performers we have in our squad. Our Members have also shown me so much support. I get so much love from the Members and fans. The support is so good, I feel so loved at this Club, and we have the best Members in the game. I'm so grateful that I will get to hear them cheer me on for the next four years."
Rabbitohs Head of Football, Mark Ellison, says extending Graham's contract was a priority for the Club. "Campbell has proven himself to be one of the leading centres in the game," Mr Ellison said. "He has risen through the grades at South Sydney to play first grade at just 18 years of age, and since that day at the SCG he hasn't looked back. He has represented his Country and was unlucky not to represent his State this year, but we know he will get the opportunity to represent New South Wales in the years to come because of the quality of player and team mate that he is. He is a South Sydney man through-and-through and we want to achieve our Club's goals with him and his family playing a key role in that success. We all love working with 'Stretch' and we look forward to continuing that work with him over the seasons to come."
