Browne Extends until 2016
The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs are pleased to announce the contract extension of front row forward Tim Browne, through until the end of 2016.
The 26-year-old was originally contracted until the end of 2015 but his consistency through this season has earned the Raymond Terrace Roosters junior a 12-month extension.
Browne made his NRL debut in Round 5 of season 2010 against the Warriors and has since gone on to make 35 appearances in the blue and white.
After making 17 of those appearances this year, Browne has grown considerably during his time at Belmore.
“I’m really happy that I’ve been able to extend my stay here at Belmore,” Browne said. “I’ve really enjoyed the last couple of seasons here and to be able to stay is a great feeling.
“I had some tough years with injury but the last couple have been great and I hope I can continue to play consistently under the guidance of Des.”
The 26-year-old has come through the Bulldogs junior ranks and made his NRL debut in season 2011 (Rnd 2 v Rabbitohs, ANZ Stadium) and has since gone on to make 29 appearances in the top grade.
Chief Executive Raelene Castle has been impressed with Browne since arriving at the club.
“Tim is one of those guys who is fantastic in the team environment,” Castle said. “He’s been a consistent performer throughout this year and we hope that continues over the next couple of years.”
Coach Des Hasler is pleased to have Browne extending his time at the club.
“Tim is continuing to learn about what it takes to play week in, week out in the NRL and is finding consistency in his game.”
