The Rabbitohs NRL squad is coming together for 2018, which will give us idea of some of the players for the Bears next year.

A few new signings who are likely to feature with the Bears:
Richie Kennar - centre from Bulldogs
Jesse Arthars - centre/fullback from Melbourne U20s
Mark Nicholls - front rower from Melbourne
Connor Tracey - halfback signed from Cronulla for 2017, but was out injured all year

Rabbitohs squad is currently (edited 21/11):

Outside backs
Greg Inglis, Dane Gagai, Alex Johnston, Hymel Hunt, Robert Jennings
Campbell Graham, Braidon Burns, Richie Kennar, Jesse Arthurs, Jacob Gagan

Halves
Cody Walker, Adam Reynolds
Adam Douehi, Connor Tracey

Front row
Zane Musgrove, Tom Burgess, George Burgess, Kyle Turner
Jason Clark, Mark Nicholls, Junior Tatola

Hookers
Damien Cook, Robbie Farah
Billy Brittain

Backrow
Sam Burgess, Angus Crichton, John Sutton, Cameron Murray, Tyrell Fuimaono
Dean Britt, Siosifa Talakai, Jesse Martin


Under-20s
The Rabbitohs have also released a number of articles of some of their U20s who have re-signed next year, plus there were a few already on multi-year deals. Some of these will be pushing for spots in the ISP Cup, or will help form the core of the Bears U20s side next year. The Bears have also signed up their best SG Ball players from 2017.
The Rabbitohs signings are:
Dean Hawkins - halfback
Sam Johnstone - front row
Ky Rodwell - front row
Josh Cook - hooker
Lucky Tavaale - back row
Mawene Hiroti - centre/wing
Tyrone Taukamo - wing

Thanks girvie, a useful summary.

Any word on the NS squad? Have any NS-contracted players form 2017 been re-signed, let go, picked up by NRL clubs, or changed clubs?

I haven't heard anything yet about the squad. Hopefully there are some announcements soon.

Thanks girvie.

Are Hiroti and Taukamo based off earlier signing announcements? I wonder if their contracts are still valid or whether players had to re-register due to the changes in the u20s?

For the recent announcements some background info is:

Josh Cook: Souths junior. played in Souths SG Ball but no u20s this year. The signing announcement mentioned him being part of the 2017 u20s squad but i never saw his name in the player profiles. They were usually updated quite well so dunno whats goin on there.

Dean Hawkins: Souths junior played SG Ball then transitioned to u20s this year.

Sam Johnstone: Came from Mackay and played SG Ball in 2016. Played u20s this year. A big unit at 196cm/116kg. Given his size it carried the usual hype. From what i saw he hasnt been necessarily dominating but had some hallmarks of a solid no-nonsense prop. Good workrate, put in the effort quite well. Could be a NRL player one day i think but hasnt been tested against the men just u20s.

Ky Rodwell: Souths junior, played SG Ball then u20s this year.

Lucky Kenny Taavale: from wynnum manly u20s and was in the Souths u20s this year. I get the feeling he's a quiet achiever. Has been solid everytime i've seen him play.

These are the players in the 2017 squad that were still eligible to play u20s. Background is generally where they were just prior to this season.

Tarquin Butler (2nd row/centre) sths SG
Adam Doueihi (half) Tigers SG (you'd assume he's still involved)
Henry-Siriah Fuimaono (prop) sths SGball/oakhurst RU
Keaon Koloamatangi (backrow) sths SG
Jordan Mailata (prop) Five dock A Grade (200cm/150kg...no im not kidding)
Blake Manowski (backrow) sths SG
Malachi Morgan (utilty forward) burleigh
Nicholas Mougios (back) sths SG
Dylan O'Connor (back) sths SG
Charles Shepherd (back) berowra

He's listed in girvie's original post as being part of the current Rabbitohs squad:

What happened to Luke Kelly? After a slow start, I thought he finished the season well.

Souths have signed a couple of extra players:
Jacob Gagan - centre/wing from the Knights
Jesse Martin - lock - Manly U20s captain (premiers)

There is also a rumour that they will sign Jack Stockwell (prop) from the Knights.

Seems Tasutalasi Tasi wont be with the Bears either. Dont know the next club yet but looks like qld cup.

Should be quite a different looking squad. Out of the top 20 of games played last year there's less than half left and most are not confirmed yet....

23: Deitz, Levido
22: Rudolf
21: Kelly, Murphy, Whitelaw
18: Moceidreke, Rogers, Tasi
15: Cherro, Williams
14: Miski
13: Doueihi, Mauala, Murray, Tyrrell
11: Greinke, Nielsen, Robinson
9: Gos
