Damien Cook has signed a two-year contract extension which will see him remain at Souths until the end of 2025.

The 31 year-old has played 170 NRL games including 161 matches for South Sydney since making his first grade debut in 2013.

He joined the Rabbitohs in 2016 and has gone on to represent Australia in four Test matches, played 15 State of Origin games for New South Wales, as well as representing Country Origin and the World All Stars.

Cook was the Dally M Hooker of the Year in 2018 and is a two-time, back-to-back winner of the George Piggins Medal for his efforts throughout the 2018 and 2019 seasons.

Cook says he wants to finish his career as a Rabbitoh.

“This Club is also part of my family. I’ve married my wife Courtney whilst here at Souths, we’ve had our two kids whilst being here too, and during some tough times in recent years the Rabbitohs could not have done more to look after our families and keep us connected throughout that time.

“I feel like my teammates, the coaches and the staff are part of my extended family and that’s why we’ve had some success in recent years.” he told the clubs website

“In saying that, we haven’t achieved what we have set out to achieve just yet and I think we have the team and support to win the 22nd premiership for the Rabbitohs in the next few years.

“We’re all focussed on that goal and I’m really excited about having the chance to play my role in achieving that for our team, our Club and our Members.”

Rabbitohs Head of Football, Mark Ellison, says he is looking forward to seeing what Cook can help the team achieve over the next three years.

“It is fantastic to know that Damien will be part of our squad for the next three seasons,” Mr Ellison said.
