    Despite our dire straits situation with the cap, I’m really liking our recruitment and focus on development for the future!

    —————————————————————

    The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have signed Penrith Panthers winger Christian Crichton for the next three seasons.

    The 21 year-old winger, who has made eight NRL appearances for the Panthers this year, will join the Bulldogs at the start of next season.

    The 100 kg speedster was born in Samoa but moved to Sydney as a teenager.

    Bulldogs Chief Executive Andrew Hill was delighted with the signing of Crichton: "Signing a player of Christian's ability and potential is great news for Bulldogs fans. He provides us with a quality option in the outside backs and is part of our overall recruitment plan moving forward. We look forward to him joining us at Belmore next season."

    This is a good signing.

    No superstar but probably better than most other back options we currently have. Would take one wing spot next season I'd assume.

    If he can get a run in first grade at the Panthers with their juniors then he can' be to bad. Has speed as well.

    Only 4 players to go till we fill the top 30 now! We are so thin in the outside backs next year so we had to sign someone. This is where the people that are saying the salary cap thing isn't that bad are wrong we are replacing Bmoz with this guy.

    neither but i still think he is likely to offer more then our current contracted wingers for next year


    and we clearly can't be picky

    He's not good at all ATM. But that's expected for a 21 year old winger in first year of NRL. Does have a bit of talent, but he'll need to put size on asap.

    Either way better that were targeting these young players to produce, rather than has beens.

    At least he runs hard. Has speed...... throw him on one wing, holland on the other. Looks like they want lewis in the centres. Going to have a very young side.

    The panthers rated him highly. Was called the Samoan sauce. Good signing imo.

    Hasn’t been that impressive for Penrith from what I’ve seen however at 100kg and powerful he should start our sets off well as long as Montoya remembers how to run hard.

    Let’s be real, we are tight as hell on the cap, we need to sign up and coming players, I watched him yesterday and it’s a good signing, he did however spill the beans on his 2nd try.. we just gotta sign the young ones to start re building
