Rabbitohs veteran John Sutton remains hopeful of staying at South Sydney beyond the 2017 season.

Sutton is also in line notch up 300 games in the NRL next season and would become the first Rabbitohs player in their 109‑year history to join the elite group.

With the Rugby League World Cup less than four months away, the 32-year-old is eligible for the Fiji Bati side under his mother's country of birth, Fiji.

Despite being overlooked in the Pacific Test match in May, an international debut for the Fijian side is now possible for Sutton and one that would add another illustrious honour to his 275‑game career to date.

Sutton says he has spoken to the Fiji coaching staff about maybe playing and he will have to wait and see, he adds that it would be something special to be selected to play for the Fiji Bati.
