Morrin Earns Two Year Extension

Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs' Kurtis Morrin has agreed to a contract extension of two years that will see the lock forward remain in the blue and white.

The mobile forward has built a reputation as an impact player off the bench, making 12 NRL appearances for the Club in 2023 and scoring two tries.

The Club’s 2021 Jersey Flegg Cup Player of the Year played 17 matches for NSW Cup in 2022 before earning his first taste of top grade. He was given the NRL call-up in Round 15 against the Wests Tigers, just six days on from the Bulldogs’ third win of the 2022 season over the Parramatta Eels and first under interim coach Mick Potter.

He went on to play 20 games that year for the eventual 2022 Grand Finalists; 11 from the interchange, seven at lock and two at prop. His debut call-up proved a memorable one, stepping onto the park at the 51-minute mark and a short time later scoring a try after Josh Addo-Carr scooped up a loose ball from a left-edge raid and skipped back infield before finding a charging Morrin to score.

He made two more first-grade appearances in 2022 (Rounds 16 and 18) before bringing that experience back to the NSW Cup team, who went on to win six from eight matches in a late-season charge to make the Grand Final against the Penrith Panthers.

Morrin was called on several times during the 2023 season by Head Coach Cameron Ciraldo. He quickly established himself at training as a promising young talent, credited for his effort and work ethic. At just 23 years of age and entering his second NRL pre-season training period, the dynamic forward has a big future ahead of him.

Head Coach, Cameron Ciraldo said Morrin was seeing the rewards for his efforts at training and leading the Pack from the front: "Kurt represents everything that we stand for at the Bulldogs. He works hard and is a great teammate.

"His never-say-die attitude means that he is someone the team can look to, to lead the way during tough moments in the game. He is the type of teammate that every player wants to play with and every coach wants to coach."
