    This was at the bottom of article in the Telegraph about the new sponsor thought it deserved its own thread.

    On the recruitment front, the Bulldogs have all but settled on their roster for next season.

    Boom forward Corey Harawira-Naera will be one of seven new faces at Belmore after salary cap constraints forced Pay to rebuild his roster.

    Hill says the club is not actively shopping for any more players but have “some wriggle room in the cap” to add the right signing. He says a resolution in the different coaching sagas currently hanging over clubs like Penrith and the Tigers will have a ripple effect on the player market.

    “We’re not actively pursuing anyone at the moment. There appears to be some movements in coming weeks and months once all the coaching drama is sorted out. If the right opportunity presents itself then, we’ll look at it,” he said.

    He also shut down rumours the club was looking to offload Michael Lichaa to bring in off-contract hooker James Segeyaro.

    “There’s been speculation around Lichaa for time but we’ve had no formal discussions with his management so I’m not sure where that has come from,” he said.

    Hill also indicated the club would be looking to take their home games to the new Western Sydney Stadium in 2020 once the refurbishment of ANZ Stadium commences in late 2019. Canterbury are also in a position to take home games interstate and to the bush.

    Their efforts to lock down an interim home ground have been stifled by the uncertainty surrounding the start date of the redevelopment.

    Im not sure seggy was the answer either. Would have rathered we develop woolford. But obviously that was not meant to be as he wanted to be with his dad.

    Is it impossible to have our own stadium like back in 2002 we almost had one in Liverpool? Would be good to build one there.

    Why don't we just use Belmore and put abit of money into the ground and allow for another 5000 seats. That would bring stadium capacity to about 22,000. In saying that we are lucky to get 15,000 at a home game nowadays so it should be alright haha

    It just costs way too much to build your own stadium and they just leaks money when you have to pay for everything. The only way it could be feasible is if you had lots of major events at it and ANZ and Allianz already have them. Our only chance was 2002 and it won’t happen again.
