It was Greg Eastwood yesterday and today the Canterbury Bulldogs have announced that prop forward Aiden Tolman has signed on until the end of the 2017 season, a new 4-year deal.
Tolman, 26, has made two appearances for Country Rugby League, one in 2011 and the other in 2013, playing in 109 NRL games in total with 56 of those coming for the Bulldogs.
With speculation mounting that he was headed elsewhere, Tolman is just pleased to have his future sorted in order to focus on what really matters, the football.
â€œIâ€™ve found a good home here at the Bulldogs and itâ€™s good to know that it is where Iâ€™ll be for the next four years,â€ Tolman said.
â€œI have a number of aspirations and goals that Iâ€™d love to achieve in this game and I believe that with the current structure here at the club I can go a long way to ticking those things off.â€
â€œI always said this next contract would be an important one for me and my family and Iâ€™m happy with the security I have around this deal.â€
Equally pleased with the re-signing is Bulldogs coach Des Hasler, who is pleased to retain some with the caliber of Aiden Tolman.
â€œAiden is a part of our senior playing group and is a very valued member of our squad both on and off the field,â€ Hasler said.
â€œHe is someone who continuously works hard on his game and is looking to improve every week.â€
â€œAiden is the consistent performer in this competition and I look forward to working with him in the future.â€
