Although he is currently injured, that certainly has not stopped negotiations from taking place – with the Bulldogs winger Steve Turner signing a 1-year extension with the club.
The new deal will see Turner remain with the Bulldogs for a further season, having joined the Bulldogs in the 2010 NRL season.
With 153 NRL games to date, and 53 for the Bulldogs, Turner was awarded with representative honours earlier this year, when he played for the City NSW side – before injuring his patella tendon.
â€œItâ€™s great that the club has shown faith in me and rewarded me with another year extension,” said Turner.
“It is always reassuring to have my future tied up for another twelve months and I am really looking forward to getting back on the field come pre-season.â€
Although Turner has been injured since Rd 8, that has not stopped him from fulfilling other commitments, with the club giving him a role within their media department.
â€œThe injury has given me an opportunity to rest my body for the back end of the year, these things happen but my focus is now on getting ready for the pre-season and I am really looking forward to getting back on the field next year.â€
â€œI enjoy my time here at the club and the club has been wonderful to me, especially at the backend of this season.â€
â€œTodd and the club have been great in endorsing me to do the off-field stuff; it opens my eyes up to what the club does and what the media do for us as players. I think the skills I am learning are a great tool and one I am going to be appreciative of when I do finish my football careerâ€.
