The Bulldogs have confirmed the departure Michael Lichaa, Danny Fualalo, John Olive and Nu Brown from the club after farewelling them at Saturday's clash with Brisbane at ANZ Stadium.

All four players were off-contract at the end of the year and won't return to the club in 2020.

Lichaa had previously been farewelled by the club at the completion of the 2017 season before sensationally re-signing on a two-year deal.

  1. All four of those players aren’t too bad. Brown’s helped their Canterbury Cup team into the finals.
    Olive, Fualalo & Lichaa could be bargain buys by some club.
    How about Lichaa to the Storm? Smith has to retire some time & then Brendon Smith will need a back up . I bet he could look great again playing in the Storm system.

  2. Finally Lichaas gone..,

    No big losses here..

    Dohgs still need a hooker and a decent centre although I do like how Morgan Harper played
