Following the announcement of his re-signing, Bulldogs fullback Dallin Watene-Zelezniak has taken to social media to thank the club, as well as its members and fans.
Watene-Zelezniak committed to the club for a further two years, keeping him in the blue and white until the end of the 2022 season.
He arrived at Belmore midway through last year and had an immediate impact on the playing group through his actions on and off the field.
His arrival coincided with the team winning seven of its final ten matches and his performances in the fullback role left many of the clubs’ loyal members and fans impressed each and every week.
The 24-year old says it’s a privilege to be a part of an amazing club and is excited for the next three years.
“What a privilege it is to be a part of such an amazing club. On behalf of my wife and kids we just want to say thank you to the Bulldogs for having us around for the next three years and putting so much faith and belief in us since day one. To the fans and members, thank you also for your love and support. Can’t wait for next season to have you guys pushing us along in every game as well. Your faith and belief in us, is what is going to help,” Watene-Zelezniak posted on Instagram.
The Kiwi international played 10 matches for the club, averaged 142 metres per games, including a season high of 227 against the Newcastle Knights in Round 17, as well as 40 tackle breaks.
The St Clair Comets junior will return to pre-season training on November 20 in preparation for the 2020 season.
