As part of our 2018 Colts Program we are also pleased to announce a new player mentor program headed by former Wallabies Brendan Cannon and Toutai Kefu along with former NRC star James Turner.

Rest assured, our Colts for 2018 will receive the best possible coaching and advice available to them. 

Upon confirming his involvement Brendan Cannon offered the following about Colts Rugby & Souths.

"I am excited about being back involved at Souths – it has been a huge part of my family’s life with my grandfather, father, & brother, uncle & cousins all being involved at some stage. Colts Rugby for me are some of the memorable years of my Rugby Career. Your mates, your enjoyment and pure and simple unrestricted Rugby Fun. I am looking forward to helping this next generation of Magpies fly".
