The Bulldogs have shored up their front-row stocks, announcing that young forward Martin Taupau has re-signed with the club for a further 2 seasons.
Taupau, who is a former junior Kiwi and a member of the Bulldogs Toyota Cup team, Martin has been a part of the Bulldogs first-grade since 2010, the year that he made his debut.
â€œThe Bulldogs have been a big part of my life for a number of years now and Iâ€™m over the moon to be staying at the Club,â€ Taupau said.
â€œIâ€™ve learnt a lot working with our coaching staff this year and itâ€™s an honour to be involved with such a great team of players.
â€œIâ€™m still growing as a player and as a person and I look forward to my football education continuing over the next two years.
â€œMore than anything else I want to put in on the field for the Bulldogs, our Members and supporters.â€
Bulldogs coach Des Hasler says that he is pleased to have re-signed a young talent like Taupau.
â€œMarty has a great deal of potential and Iâ€™m looking forward to his ongoing development over the next couple of seasons,â€ Bulldogs head coach Des Hasler said.
â€œHeâ€™s a popular member of the squad and Iâ€™m sure his contribution will continue to grow in the years to come.â€
