Myers signs for 2024-25

27th May 2024

The South Sydney Rabbitohs have signed promising outside back Fletcher Myers immediately until the end of the 2025 season today. Myers, 21, has been released from the remainder of his playing contract at the Newcastle Knights and he will join the Rabbitohs immediately on a development contract for the remainder of the 2024 season as well as the 2025 season.

Myers, a proud Worimi man, is a Waratah Mayfield Cheetahs junior that spent two years in the Sea Eagles’ development pathway before heading back north to Newcastle where he was on development contract with the Knights this year. Myers has played 20 NSW Cup matches with the Knights and Sea Eagles over the past two seasons as well as having opportunities to play in NRL pre-season trials with both clubs, and represented New South Wales under 16s and the New South Wales Koori under 16s in 2019, where he was named man-of-the-match in the annual clash against the Queensland Murri under 16s. Myers is also studying a Bachelor of Education (Secondary Science and Physical Education) degree at Southern Cross University, setting himself up for a career post-football.

Rabbitohs Head of Football, Mark Ellison, says Myers will add further depth to the outside backs at the Rabbitohs, particularly in the centres. "He is a big body with skills to match, he’s a mature young man, and we’re looking forward to having him don the red and green of the Rabbitohs this year and next."
