Dallin Watene-Zelezniak has signed a three-year deal with the Canterbury Bulldogs.
The Bulldogs have beaten out a host of rival clubs to acquire the Kiwi international, including Wests Tigers, Parramatta and North Queensland.
It comes after reports that he penned a contract with the Tigers, however, the club was reportedly unable to move on a high-profile play to accommodate for Watene-Zelezniak.
The 23-year old could line-up at fullback for Dean Pay’s side in next Sunday’s clash against the Sydney Roosters.
“The acquisition of Dallin is fantastic news for the club and the vision we have going forward,” Bulldogs chief executive Andrew Hill told the club website.
“Not only is Dallin a great player but he is a quality person and a leader. As the current Kiwi captain he provides us with both class and proven ability and he will be a major addition to our backline.
“On the back of Joe Stimson from the Storm agreeing to terms last week, Dallin’s signing is another significant step in the right direction for the club and we welcome Dallin and his family to Belmore and look forward to our Members and fans getting the chance to watch him play.”
