Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs front row forward Sam Kasiano has today confirmed he will remain at the Bulldogs for a further three seasons, through until the end of 2018.

The 24-year-old has come through the Bulldogs junior ranks and made his NRL debut in season 2011 (Rnd 1 v Tigers, ANZ Stadium) and has since gone on to make 74 appearances in the top grade.

The Kiwi-international had a patchy 2014 where injury stopped him from being on the field consistently but the 24-year-old has started the year strongly and his hopeful of it continuing.

“It’s great,” Kasiano said. “It’s a great club, great bunch of guys and it’s awesome that I know I will be here for another three years.

“Des is one the best coaches in the game and I’m happy that I can continue to learn from him. I’ve had a tough run with injuries lately so I’m just looking to string some games together.”

Coach Des Hasler is keen to continue working with Sam.

“Sam is an exciting and skilful player who has represented his country,” Hasler said. “He has got through a tough run of injuries and has started the season positively.”

Chief Executive Raelene Castle is pleased that Sam is remaining at the club.

“We all know how destructive Sam can be on the field and hopefully we will see that continue over the next three years,” Castle said. “It’ll be good to see him grow as a player and contribute week to week for the club.”
