Coach Michael Maguire said he was delighted that Clark had decided to remain at the club for a further two years.
“Clarky is one of the most passionate and professional players we have in our squad and I’m really happy that we have been able to extend his contract with us for another couple of seasons,” said Maguire.
“He works very hard on his game and leads the team both on and off the field.
“He’s a South Sydney junior who always talks about his dream of representing South Sydney and we’re glad that he’s able to fulfil that dream here with us.”
