Rabbitohs extend contract for young gun Peter Mamouzelos

·

The South Sydney Rabbitohs announced on Monday that the contract of young Greek Australian Peter Mamouzelos has been extended until 2021.

Mamouzelos joins fellow young guns Blake Taaffe, Jaxson Paulo and Lachlan Ilias, in extending their tenures with the Rabbitohs this year.

Rabbitohs Head of Football, Mark Ellison, said these players will have the opportunity to push for first grade selection in the coming seasons.

“Peter, Jaxson, Blake and Lachlan have the skills and the attitude to make it to the NRL level, hence why we are upgrading and extending their contracts now as we see them as future first grade Rabbitohs,” Mr Ellison said.

“We’re excited to be able to continue to work with these young men and we’re certain our Members will enjoy watching them develop and play their trade in the red and green for years to come.”

Who is Peter Mamouzelos?

At 19 years old, Mamouzelos is a hooker who has already represented Greece in seven matches including the recent World Cup Qualifiers.

The son of Theo and Denise Mamouzelos, Peter credits his parents for helping him achieve his dream of becoming a Rabbitoh.

“Honestly if it wasn’t for my parents, I don’t think I would have ever been in this position today. Just all the effort taking me to training, to games, picking me up late — without all that effort I don’t think I would have been able to achieve it,” Mamouzelos said in an interview with The Daily Telegraph.
