The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have confirmed the new signings of Brad Abbey (three-year deal), Craig Garvey (two-year deal) and Kerrod Holland (two-year deal).

Abbey, widely acknowledged as a young fullback with huge potential joins the club from the New Zealand Warriors where he has starred in their NYC teams.

Kerrod Holland joins the club from the Newcastle Knights NSW Cup winning team where he earned a reputation as one of the best young centre products in Rugby League.

Meanwhile, Craig Garvey arrives at the Bulldogs from the St George Illawarra Dragons where he’s been carving out a career as hooker.

All three players will begin pre-season training along with the complete squad over the coming weeks and for Chief Executive Raelene Castle the announcements today are a significant step forward for the 2016 season.

The club has also confirmed the re-signing of Sam Perrett, Chase Stanley, Tyrone Phillips, Pat O’Hanlon and Adam Elliott.



  1. Garvey???? I’m still thinking that Farah will wear the Red V next season and this signing by the Dogs could confirm this.
    Ps. I’d love Farah at the Dragons with Rein for a season or two.
    Robbie you’ll play in the NRL with us so cmon mate come over.

  2. Great signings by the club? Can any Dragons fans tell me what Garvey is like? Is he any good?

    • Bulldog personally I had more raps on him than Rein prior to his 12 months out. Rein improved his game this year and is the Dragons tackling machine and smarter so Garvey not in coach’s plans although Garvey had a better dummy half pass when fresh.
      Ok defender but not that fast out of dummy half and wont overthrow Lichaa. Solid but not brilliant if needed. Depends on $$$ spent by Cleopatra Castle.

  3. this is a no story , all these players bar perret will be all in nsw cup big deal i thought maybe hoppa or daniel mortimer was what this story was about alot of hype for nothing

  4. Good never liked Garvey. Dragons won’t sign Farah we’ve already signed and resigned 3 hookers. Good work Bulldogs signing youth

  5. Craig Gravey will be good for the dogs. He is a good player and will be their 2nd choice hooker after Lichaa cause cook went to the bunnies.
