Back-up Rabbitohs half Adam Doueihi appears to be playing himself into a regular starting spot, and maybe not just for this year.
According to Nathan Ryan on Fox Sports, the Rabbitohs have commenced negotiations with Doueihi for a new deal, and are “confident” of getting a deal done.
Off-contract at season’s end, the new deal is expected to be for another two seasons.
Doueihi has been a minor revelation for the Rabbitohs in the absence of Adam Reynolds, and will be very difficult to drop if he can maintain his current standard.
Doueihi has played 2 first grade games for the Rabbitohs, and 4 Tests for Lebanon.
