Rabbitohs tag Rodwell as a player you should ‘get to know’
Bombala’s Ky Rodwell has once again
appeared on the Sydney Rabbitohs
website, with the rising rugby league

piece reads as follows on rabbitohs.

future ahead of him, Ky Rodwell will
be looking to grow into the role of a
regular first grader.

A future in the NRL awaits Rodwell
with the gun forward signed until the
end of 2020. In 2018, he will be play a
part with feeder club the North Sydney
Bears in a bid to develop into a regular
His presence around regular first
graders will be pushing him to work
hard as Head Coach Anthony Seibold
looks to build a stack of depth in a
number of positions.
“Ky Rodwell is a work in progress,
an Australian Schoolboy front rower
from our junior system. He’s an
outstanding prospect who we see over
the couple of years forcing his way into
first grade,” said General Manager of
Football, Shane Richardson.”
