Finucane & Jackson Extend their Stay with the Bulldogs

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs are pleased to announce the contract extensions of both Dale Finucane and Josh Jackson that will see them remain at the Bulldogs until the end of season 2016.


Both Finucane and Jackson were already contracted until the end of season 2014 but consistent form has earned them extensions on their already existing deals.


Finucane, 21, made his NRL debut in Round 13 of season 2012 against the Rabbitohs and has since played 33 games straight in the NRL.


The Bega junior is happy to have his future sorted at the Club.


I moved up here to play SG Ball and through hard work Ive managed to fulfil a dream of playing in the NRL, Finucane said. Ive had a good run so far and my main aim is just to continually play at this level and contribute as best as I can to the team.


Jackson made his NRL debut just three weeks later in Round 16 of 2012 against the Storm in Mackay. The 22-year-old has also not missed a match since his debut and has a tally of 31 games at NRL level to his name.


Its great that Ive been able to secure my future beyond next year, Jackson said. Ive done a lot of growing up here and its great to know Ill be here for the next three seasons playing with this great bunch of guys.


CEO Raelene Castle is happy that both players development can continue here at the Club.


Both Dale and Josh are great young men who have made significant contributions both on and off the field, Castle said. Were pleased that we have been able to re-sign them and they can continue develop as players and as men as a part of the Bulldogs squad.


Coach Des Hasler is pleased to have both players remaining here at the Club.


Both Dale and Josh have come through the system here at the Club and have been consistent performers since making their debut, Hasler said. They are still only young so well continue to help them develop as players and its good to know they will be doing it here at the Bulldogs.
