Canterbury Chief Executive Andrew Hill has spoken out about discussions that have taken place between the club and captain Josh Jackson.

Jackson has been a Bulldog since he debuted in the NRL back in 2012, and has 178 first grade games to his name.

The 28-year-old is currently contracted until the end of the 2020 season, although Hill says the club is looking to extend that deal.

“Josh and I have already had initial discussions about a contract extension and we are both comfortable with focussing on the rest of the season and then being able to sit down in the off-season to talk in more detail,” Hill told the club’s website.

“With the good recent run of performances, both of us would prefer that everyone can concentrate on continuing to play good football before we get together to discuss things further at the end of the season.”
