The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have all but announced securing the services of New Zealand Warriors NSW Cup player Ofahiki Ogden.

Ogden has agreed to play for Canterbury next year, putting end to speculation suggesting that Stephen Kearney is attempting to change his mind.

The New Zealand Warriors confirmed a number of departures, including Ogden.

A former Kiwi Junior and under 16’s and 18’s representative, Ogden has been a stand-out in the Holden Cup and Intrust Super Cup in the past four seasons he’s played with the Warriors.

Ogden recently farewelled his time at the Warriors captioning his photo at the Warriors award night:

“Forever grateful to our God for this opportunity playing the game I grew up admiring. Met some mates along the way whom I will cherish for a long time! Putting all my trust in God’s hands as I venture out into a new journey.”

With the Bulldogs cutting loose two players due to salary cap woes, they are on the hunt for cut-price players with ability, and Ogden fits the bill.
