New Recruit Highlights: Josh Cleeland
Highlights from Josh Cleeland's 2016 season.
The Bulldogs welcome Josh Cleeland to the club on a two-year deal following one season with 2016 NRL Premiers the Cronulla Sharks.
Cleeland joined the Sharks in 2016 after playing an integral role in the premiership winning success of the Ipswich Jets in the 2015 Queensland Cup.
Fresh off a breakout 2016 and being named in the NSW Cup Team of the Year for the Newtown Jets, Josh Cleeland insists that his recent success will not be enough to guarantee him an NRL jersey in 2017 but rather he is looking to incumbent halves pairing Josh Reynolds and Moses Mbye to help improve his game.
“They (Reynolds & Mbye) have a strong running game, they love being around the ball,”
“At the Sharks I concentrated a lot on running good lines but coming here I really want to work more on controlling the game… I am excited to see what they can show me to help me improve this year.” Cleeland told Bulldogs.com.au
Cleeland has shown his versatility will prove his pre-Christmas gift to Belmore with talks already underway about a utility role to be played by Cleeland in 2017.
