    MARSHALL-KING COMMITS TO THE BULLDOGS FOR A FURTHER TWO YEARS

    The Bulldogs have continued to build for the future by extending the contract of hooker Jeremy Marshall-King by a further two years, keeping him at Belmore until the end of the 2021 season.

    After moving to the Bulldogs from the Wests Tigers in 2018, Marshall-King has proved to be an ironman of the blue and white pack, playing in 23 NRL matches in each of the last two seasons, in addition to winning the 2019 Coaches Award.

    Having both started and come off the bench, the 23 year-old has impressed with his service from dummy half and his strong running game.

    Bulldogs Head Coach Dean Pay was pleased that the club had been able to extend Marshall-King's time at Belmore:

    "Jeremy is the sort of player that every club needs. He has really embraced the hooker's role and he has those qualities of toughness and determination that have really added to the side over the past two seasons.

    We believe that he has a great future in the game and that is based on the fact that he is continually looking to learn and improve all the time.

    As we continue to strengthen our squad, Jeremy's decision to extend his time with the Bulldogs is a major bonus for the club moving forward.

    I'm still not sold on him being a long term solution at hooker but he is a handy player to have in the squad and is improving his game.

    Hopefully there will be a few more re-signings coming in the next few weeks.

    Thuroughly deserved. You can see he has a great attitude and has learned a lot from Benji's experience as an NRL player.

    I think he can really turn into a rep Hooker if he keeps sharpening his skills. We sometimes forget he's still only 23.

    JMK extends for 1 more year since he was on contract for 2020 already.
    Will be valuable moving forward off the bench behind Harry Grant *fingers crossed*.

    Well done, have always seen this kid play with heart, not always with brains, but that will come in time. Well there you have in, our first choice hooker in 2020.

    Yeh, I like this signing. Hard to find good hookers in the NRL.

    Even a half decent hooker like JMK is hard to find these days.

    JMK has improved a lot in 2 years.

    Well done to the kid, thoroughly deserved.

    Hopefully this means we dont go pissing money on Sione Katoa

    We still need to sign another Hooker... Katoa would be on almost minimum wage.

    He would be on overs, and on a side note he is shit.

    We have Cogger and Lewis battling the other spot in the halves which means 1 of them play cup. Whoever it is one of them will be backup if JMK goes down during the year.

    Now go do your maths and get back to me with your figures and scenarios

    This is good, he's a solid player and with Lewis in defence, not a lot can slip through.

    Before JMK came to us he only trained part time. Hopefully there’s plenty of improvement to come.
