Rising star to boost Dog pack

THE Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have continued their re-building process with the signing of talented back Corey Allan on a three-year deal.

Allan, who can play both the fullback and wing position, will join the Bulldogs immediately in preparation for the upcoming season.
The versatile 22-year-old, who represented the Prime Minister’s XIII before making his NRL debut, played 29 matches for the Rabbitohs over the past two seasons, in addition to making his State of Origin debut for Queensland against NSW in Game Three last year.
Bulldogs Chief Executive Andrew Hill said he was delighted at being able to secure the signing of the talented youngster.
“With what we believe has been an excellent off-season in terms of adding quality to our playing group, Corey’s signing is another great step forward in regard to what we are building here at Belmore,” Hill said.
“By adding a State of Origin player to our squad and someone who has the potential to continue to grow as a footballer, we believe it is a major positive for our club and fantastic news for our Members and fans.”
Bulldogs Head Coach Trent Barratt said the Bulldogs had worked hard in the off-season to sign the right players in terms of their ability and attitude and they believed that Corey would be a great addition for the club.
“Everyone has seen what Corey can do over the past two seasons and we believe that he has the potential to be an outstanding player and someone that adds both quality and versatility to our backline,” Barrett said.
“Corey will join us immediately and start training with the squad from today and everyone is looking forward to him being part of the Bulldogs.”
