Souths sign Peachey

South Sydney has revived the NRL career of David Peachey, signing the former Cronulla fullback for the remainder of the 2006 season.

Peachey was on the lookout for a new club after being sacked by English division one club Widnes mid-season following a second mercy dash back to Australia to be with his ill step-father.

The enigmatic 32-year-old, a veteran of 12 seasons and 232 first grade games for the Sharks, will commence training with the club this week and should be available for the Rabbitohs' trip to Canberra on Saturday night.
