Bulldogs.com.au catches up with returning half Dane Chisholm as he looks ahead to the upcoming pre-season.

Chisholm began the 2015 season with the Bulldogs New South Wales Cup side, before moving over to the English Super League and joining Hull KR on loan for the remainder of the season.

The talented half-back returns to Bulldogs and feels he has been given a lifeline from Coach Des Hasler.

“Dessie has given me a lifeline again,” Chisholm said.

“I played a bit of good footy when I was here before moving overseas, but now that I have the opportunity to train full-time, I want to make the most of it.”

Chisholm will add depth to the halves and a real focus for the former Melbourne Storm and Manly Sea Eagles player will be working with Josh Reynolds and Moses Mbye.

“Working under players like Josh Reynolds who has been here for a while now, will really allow me to learn and help my game.”
