The Canterbury Bulldogs have strengthened their 2020 forward pack with the signing of Dean Britt from the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Dean, who is the son of Darren Britt, a Bulldogs player throughout the 90’s, will join the club for two seasons.
Appearing in nine NRL games this season to date for the Rabbitohs, the signing of Britt is one that pleases club CEO Andrew Hill.
“Dean is an excellent forward who will provide another important piece for our forward pack next season,” Hill said.
“He has shown this year with his performances for the Rabbitohs that he is hard-working and tough and has the attributes that we as a club are looking for to take us forward.
“He has a great background in what the Bulldogs stand for with his father Darren having been such a major part of the club in the 90’s and we look forward to welcoming Dean to the Bulldog family next season.”
The Rabbitohs released a short statement on the release of Britt to join the Bulldogs:
“South Sydney Rabbitohs forward Dean Britt has signed with another NRL club following the completion of this season.
Britt has played 13 of his 14 NRL games for South Sydney since making his club debut against the Eels at ANZ Stadium in round 26 of the 2017 season.
The South Sydney Rabbitohs wish Dean the best of luck for the future.”
