Bulldogs TV caught up with new recruit Tom Murphy who joins the club on a 12 month contract.

Young Murphy who hails from the Sunshine Coast in Queensland joins the club on a 12 month contract after spending two years with the Redcliffe Dolphins in the QLD Cup competition.

It's a great opportunity for Murphy who has been super impressive over the summer and for the young forward, it's about make the most of the opportunity he has been given. "It's about putting my best foot forward and really impressing in the trials," said Murphy.

Prior to his two years with the Redcliffe Dolphins he spent a season with the Canberra Raiders where he was apart of their NYC side. He is a player who will certainly add plenty of depth to the squad and will certainly be out to impress in the trials next month.
