Payne in Bulldogs move

Canterbury coach Kevin Moore has described his capture of Tigers forward Corey Payne as a “valuable acquisition”.

Payne, who was coached by Moore as a 17-year-old whilst playing premier league, joins the Bulldogs for their 2010 NRL campaign.

The 25-year-old has been added to the squad as a replacement for New Zealand test forward Greg Eastwood who joined Leeds at the end of last season.

“Corey’s an aggressive, tough backrower with good ball skills and as a local junior he was really keen to come back to the Bulldogs,” said Moore.

“His ability to cover a number of roles within our forward pack makes him a valuable acquisition to our club.”
