South Sydney Rabbitohs Snap Up Josh Mansour On Multi-Year Deal
The Bunnies have got their man.
Josh Mansour has reportedly agreed to a multi-year deal to join the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
The 30-year-old winger, who fell agonisingly short of winning an NRL Premiership last year with the Penrith Panthers, returns to Souths for the first time in almost a decade.
Mansour started his rugby league career in Redfern and went on to become South Sydney's Under 20s Player of the Year for 2011 before being poached by the Panthers a year later.
And in 2012, the fan favourite speedster made his NRL debut and went on to have a great career in Sydney's west where he scored 74 tries in his 158 games for the club.

But despite helping the Panthers clinch the 2020 Minor Premiership before reaching the NRL Grand Final, head coach Ivan Cleary informed Mansour that he was no longer part of Cleary's long-term plans for the future.
It was reported that this news came just 48 hours after Penrith's Grand Final defeat at the hands of the Melbourne Storm.
Told he could seek an early release from his contract, Mansour found himself on the market for a new team - but he wasn't in the shop window for very long.
The former New South Wales State of Origin star now joins a star-studded Rabbitohs side lead by legendary head coach Wayne Bennett.
And with the likes of Latrell Mitchell, Campbell Graham, Braidon Burns, Dane Gagai, Alex Johnston and Steven Marsters all jostling for a starting position in the backs, you can see why Premiership-hungry Souths are tipped to do well this season.
