Commonly referred to as “Dogzilla”, Kasiano is listed as weighing 130kgs on the Bulldogs official website but the man in the photos below looks to have lost a huge amount of weight.
The Bulldogs could be in for a big season if Kasiano can up the number of minutes he plays, with the (former) big man a key component to their attack and go forward.
Fans on social media have been quick to congratulate Kasiano on both his wedding and his weight loss.

Wow can't get over how trim Sam Kasiano is looking. Hopefully a big year ahead of him. Can we still call him dogzilla?
