Bulldogs Chief Executive Raelene Castle was delighted at being able to re-sign the popular winger: "Marcelo has proven his ability to play at the NRL level during the 2017 season and we will see him go from strength to strength over the next 3 years. It is always a great story when a local junior comes through the ranks and his personality and professionalism fits very well with the Bulldogs culture. I know that all Bulldogs fans will be pleased to see him continue to wear the Blue and White."

Fellow local junior Josh Reynolds will make his return for the Bulldogs after suffering a hamstring injury and being sidelined since round nine.
