Bulldogs Sign Up Wheatley and Crisp


The Canterbury Bulldogs have announced two new player signings today – Aaron Wheatley from the Dragons and Brent Crisp from the Raiders.

Wheatley, 24, is a strong, solid forward who has played five NRL games.  He has signed on for one year with the Bulldogs.

Bulldogs recruitment manager Keith Onslow commented, "Aaron burst onto the league scene in 2005 for the Dragons before he was struck down with injury and illness.  That set him back a fair bit as other players such as Michael Henderson took their opportunities.  He's hungry for another go at first grade and will provide us with good depth in the forwards."

Brent Crisp, 20, can play centre, wing or fullback and has a very handy goal-kicking boot.  He has secured a two-year deal with the Bulldogs.

Onslow said, "Brent was a talented AFL player who turned his hand to league and has proved a point-scoring wiz.  We see a lot of promise in him over the next couple of years."
