Reynolds extends Rabbitohs deal

South Sydney Rabbitohs star Adam Reynolds recommitted to the NRL club, signing a deal until at least the end of 2021.

Reynolds, 26, made his State of Origin debut for New South Wales this year and extended his contract with the Rabbitohs for a further four years on Friday.

Rabbitohs head coach Michael Maguire was delighted with the re-signing of Reynolds, who has already played 113 NRL games for the club.

"Adam has been one of the key leaders in our team and is really influential in our playing group as a leading figure alongside players like [Greg] Inglis, [John] Sutton, [Jason] Clark, Sam Burgess and [Bryson] Goodwin," he said.

"He is a huge asset as a mentor to our emerging leaders and has a strong desire to add to the great achievements he has already been a part of with this club.

"Adam Reynolds is one of the elite players in our game. His ability to guide the team around the field, as well as his general play and goal kicking makes him instrumental to our success. Reynolds is hungry, as are the rest of the playing group, for success at this club.

"He is also very settled off the field. He has a beautiful young family including his bride-to-be Tallara and his three kids, and he is doing a great job balancing his elite football career with bringing up a young family.

"Adam and I both believe he has his best football in front of him and we're excited about working together to see that evolution of his game over the next five years."

The Rabbitohs endured a disappointing 2016 season, winning nine games and finishing 12th.
