The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs can today confirm that star back-rower Adam Elliott has re-signed with the club for a further three years, keeping him at Belmore until the end of the 2023 season.
Elliott had been in outstanding form this year until a shoulder injury sidelined him after the Souths game in early July and put an end to his season.
The 25 year-old had gained the praise of many observers for his play this year, in particular his hard running and ball handling ability.
He has also done a tremendous amount of work for charity off the field, including recently raising money for the Autism Community Network, with whom he has a strong connection through his brother James, in addition to being a major part of the Bulldogs Community program.
2019 Community Service Award: Adam Elliott
Bulldogs Chief Executive Andrew Hill was delighted to be able to extend Elliott's time at Belmore:
Adam has become a fantastic leader at Belmore and when he runs on to the field for the Bulldogs you can feel the passion he has for the club.
He had also shown during the early part of this season that he was one of the form back-rowers in the competition.
He continues to do a tremendous amount of work off the field and has always been the first one to put his hand up to offer his time to a charity or to represent the club at a community visit.
We look forward to seeing him continue to represent the Bulldogs with distinction over the next three years."
