The Bulldogs have continued to build the strength and depth of their forward pack with the signing of Manly back-rower Corey Waddell for the next three seasons.
The 23 year-old, who is renowned for his hard running and strong defence, made his debut for the Sea Eagles in 2019 and has currently appeared in 34 NRL matches for the club.
Waddell has family links to the game with his late father Steve having made 89 NRL appearances for Penrith and Illawarra in the late 1990's and he has also worked with incoming Bulldogs Coach Trent Barrett, while he was coming through the system at the Penrith Panthers
Bulldogs Chief Executive Andrew Hill was pleased to have added another piece to the Bulldogs squad for 2021:
"We are continuing to construct our squad for 2021 and beyond and Corey will be an important part of that process.
He is a hard-working footballer who is a strong defender and someone who will bring additional quality and depth to our forward pack.
We look forward to Corey joining us next season."
