Duo sign new deals with Canterbury Bulldogs

Canterbury Bulldogs duo Brandon Wakeham and Ray Faitala-Mariner have both re-signed with the club for a further two years.

Half-back Wakeham, 21, has made nine appearances to date for the Bulldogs and has earned three caps for Fiji.

Back-rower Faitala-Mariner, 26, has made 79 NRL appearances and has represented Samoa and New Zealand on the international stage.

Bulldogs chief executive Andrew Hill said: “As part of our focus on developing quality and depth in our playing squad, we are delighted that we have been able to keep two talented young players at Belmore for the next two seasons.

“Brandon is a local junior who has shown the talent he has at both NRL and international level with Fiji, while Ray is the type of hard-running forward that provides us with great energy whenever he is on the field.

“Both players are part of a long term plan to make sure that we keep bringing quality young players through our system and continue to develop them as they form the nucleus of our squad going forward.

“We are confident that both players will have a major impact for the club in the seasons ahead.”
