“‘Cookie’ has been one of our top performers for a long time and he has worked extremely hard to grow into an international-class player at our club,” Mr Ellison said.

“He was contracted for one more year at Souths but he has the opportunity to extend his career at another club, and we thought it was the right thing to do to allow him to take up that offer.

“We will all be working hard to send Cookie out on the right note at the Bunnies this year. I’m sure our Members and everyone connected to our club will get right behind him and his teammates as we work towards a positive end to the year over the next few months.
