    Talented half Lachlan Lewis has shown his commitment to the Bulldogs by signing a contract extension that will keep him at the club until the end of the 2021 season.

    The exciting 23 year-old has shown himself to be a player of enormous potential since debuting in 2018 and has currently played 24 NRL matches, including 15 appearances last season.

    His outstanding kicking skills have seen him average close to 350 metres per match and he has complemented those with a great passing game and tough defence.


    Bulldogs Chief Executive Andrew Hill was delighted that Lewis was keen to extend his time at Belmore :

    "Lachy is a great talent with unlimited potential and he is one of a number of young players that we think will form the basis of our squad going forward.

    He has shown great resilience on the field and also a real toughness in defence that has proven to be the basis of all great Bulldogs teams throughout our history.

    It is great for the club and our members and fans that Lachy wants to be part of what we are building here and we are all excited about the direction this club is heading."

    Don't think it's over. Next email might say

    Fan Favourites Resign

    Skilful Bulldogs legend Kerrod Holland. Meter eater, ball playing beast Adam Elliot and Fijian international Montoya have been extended on rich 4 year deals. Dean Pay believes Origin is on the horizon for these top notch players.

    the work he does off the ball has been the difference in many a game.... they need to put all emphasis on his attack now. Happy he is staying put

    Great to have him locked in for a bit longer.

    Other clubs have been sniffing about.

    Destined for premierships now

    Not shitting on him though these average signings aren’t changing anything for us.

    Glad not long term and certainly won’t want to be much $

    I agree, fucking waste of $$$ oh but he has Bulldogs DNA and he is such a great defender.
    People forget he is a half and can’t do anything but tackle. Well done Bulldogs management ... retards

    Not sure about this, his defence is was promising, but in my opinion didn’t live up to the hype.. happy to give him this year an see if there’s any improvement.. maybe now the team has their shit together and he is behind a better pack may do alright.

    benefit of the doubt but that’s it. Wouldn’t have worried me if he walked either. But he wears our jersey still, so I will support.

    They highlighted his average kick metres to talk him up haha. Hopefully he's still on his 125k contract or whatever it was, very good defender and attitude but that's about it.

    Well i guess it is a good thing we didn't get Latrell, because unless he's standing next to the touch judge he'd never get the ball LOL
