Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs coach Dean Pay has confirmed his squad for the round 21 clash with the Brisbane Broncos.
24 year-old second-rower Chris Smith will play his first NRL match for the Bulldogs in Thursday nights clash with the Broncos at ANZ Stadium (7-50pm). Smith comes on to the bench in place of Danny Fualalo, who will replace the suspended David Klemmer in the starting line-up.
Smith, who made his NRL debut for the Panthers in 2015, and then played two matches for the Roosters over the past two seasons, joined the Bulldogs before the June 30 deadline this year after Ray Faitala-Mariner suffered a broken hand.
Smith is contracted to the Bulldogs until the end of the 2020 season.
