Grimaldi re-signs with Bulldogs

Canterbury Bulldogs utility forward Tony Grimaldi has re-signed for another year with the Club.

Grimaldi, 31, has had two stints with the Bulldogs, 1996-98 and 2002-2006.  2007 will be his ninth season with the Club.

Commenting on the re-signing Bulldogs coach Steve Folkes said, "Tony is the consummate professional both on and off the field.  He's been a great servant for the Club and is the perfect role model for our younger players."

Tony Grimaldi said, "When I re-signed last year I said that 2006 would be my last year.  I guess I'm a glutton for punishment by going around for one more year."

Normally playing at lock, Grimaldi has shown himself to be a useful utility forward by stepping into the breach when the Bulldogs top two hookers Adam Perry and Corey Hughes were out for several weeks injured.  Grimaldi is also a tireless defender consistently leading the Bulldogs tackle count each week and was the NRL's leading tackler in 2005.
