One of the biggest props in the Canterbury Bulldogs side and in the NRL, Sam Kasiano packs a punch with his runs and hits and the barnstorming prop has now re-signed with the Dogs.
The new deal will see Kasiano remain at the club for a further three years until the end of 2018 and he is happy to commit to the club.
â€œItâ€™s great,â€ Kasiano said.
â€œItâ€™s a great club, great bunch of guys and itâ€™s awesome that I know I will be here for another three years.
â€œDes is one the best coaches in the game and Iâ€™m happy that I can continue to learn from him. Iâ€™ve had a tough run with injuries lately so Iâ€™m just looking to string some games together.â€
Having been a part of the Dogs organisation for a few years now, Kasiano praised the efforts of coach Des Hasler to work with him.
For Hasler, he too is excited with the opportunity to continue working alongside Kasiano.
â€œSam is an exciting and skilful player who has represented his country,â€ Hasler said.
â€œHe has got through a tough run of injuries and has started the season positively.â€
With the focus on retaining the key players within their ranks, the Bulldogs look forward to seeing Kasiano back to his destructive best as the season wears on.
â€œWe all know how destructive Sam can be on the field and hopefully we will see that continue over the next three years,â€ said club Chief Executive, Raelene Castle.
â€œItâ€™ll be good to see him grow as a player and contribute week to week for the club.â€
