The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs can confirm today that forward Dale Finucane will depart the club to take up an opportunity at the Melbourne Storm in the new year.

“Dale has been an important contributor to the Club over six years and whilst we are sad to see him leave, we are supportive of his desire to secure more game time,” Chief Executive Raelene Castle said.

“I know that the staff, fans and all of Dale’s team mates, will join me in wishing him all the best for the future.”
