Canterbury Bulldogs outside back Jake Averillo has signed a new deal that will keep him at the club until the end of 2023.

The 20-year-old made his first team debut in Round 2 of the 2020 NRL season and has made 13 appearances for the Bulldogs so far.

Bulldogs chief executive Andrew Hill said: “Jake has shown during his first season at Belmore that he has the talent and versatility to be an excellent player for this club for a long time to come.

“His progression through the local junior competition and then through our lower grades is a great example of what we are trying to achieve as a development club and we think that he will benefit enormously from working under Trent Barrett.

“We believe that with recent signings we are creating the opportunity for a new beginning here at Belmore leading into next season and Jake will be a major part of that.”
