The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have continued the process of creating a new look squad for season 2021 with the signing of the highly-rated Jack Hetherington on a two-year deal.
24 year-old Hetherington is seen as one of the toughest front-rowers in the game, having made his debut for the Panthers in 2018, before going on loan to the Warriors last season and playing in six matches.
Renowned for his strong defence, Hetherington has a strong family history in the game with his father being former Canberra Raiders and North Queensland forward Brett Hetherington, while he is also the nephew of former star Raiders full-back Brett Mullins.
Bulldogs Chief Executive Andrew Hill was pleased that Hetherington had liked what the Bulldogs were building at Belmore :
"Having someone of Jack's ability want to be part of what we are building at Belmore is fantastic news for our Members and fans.
Jack is a quality young player who will add a great deal of starch to our forward pack and we believe that he will continue to develop under Head Coach Trent Barrett, who he has worked with in recent seasons.
We are continuing to build out the depth in our squad and we believe that Jack will be a real compliment to the group of forwards that we have."
