2015 Key Signings: Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs

Here’s our look at the 2015 Key Signings for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs

1.Brett Morris

Brett Morris carved out a spectacular career at the St George Illawarra Dragons, scoring an impressive 112 tries from 169 games between 2006-2014. He has also become a permanent fixture for NSW and Australia over the past few seasons, playing 10 games for NSW and 23 Tests for Australia. A desire to play alongside twin brother Josh for the first time since 2008 lured him to the Bulldogs and they get the best winger in the world for the next 4 seasons. Defensively he is terrific, and his positional play is second to none. It remains to be seen where Morris will play in 2015 but the Bulldogs have a great talent on their books.

2.Michael Lichaa

Replacing veteran hooker and captain Michael Ennis was always going to be tough, but in Michael Lichaa the Bulldogs have a very handy replacement. He has played for NSW at U/18’s and U/20’s level and played for the Junior Kangaroos in 2012 and 2013. He made his NRL debut in 2014 and played 15 games in a struggling Sharks outfit, so he gets his big opportunity in 2015 behind a monster pack led by Englshman James Graham. He is only early into his career but he looks a likely prospect and should provide the Bulldogs with plenty of spark out of dummy half.

3.Curtis Rona

Curtis Rona is a promising player who played 7 games for the Cowboys in 2014, scoring 6 tries. He is big and strong, standing at 195cm and weighing 105kg so could be at home in the second row, or coming off the bench as an impact player. He has already tasted higher honours, representing QLD Residents in 2013 and with the wealth of forwards at the club he will likely start the year in the NSW Cup but has the ability to force his way into first grade.
