The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs are set to bolster their fullback stocks with the signing of South Sydney Rabbitohs and Queensland State of Origin fullback Corey Allan.

Channel 7’s Michelle Bishop is reporting that the Bulldogs and Allan have agreed to a three-year deal that will see Allan leave the Rabbitohs effective immediately.

The Bulldogs have been making big moves, with the club already signing Nick Cotric and Kyle Flanagan for this season, with Matt Burton and Josh Addo-Carr to join the club in 2022.

The Rabbitohs are set to be keen to release Allan from his contract to join the Bulldogs, with the Sydney Morning Herald reporting that they are keen on signing unwanted Penrith Panthers winger Josh Mansour to bolster their backline.

Mansour played junior football with the Rabbitohs and was named NYC winger of the year in 2010 for the club.

  1. Interesting that the Bulldogs sign Addo-Carr for 2022, who wants to play fullback.
    The sign Corey Allan now possibly, who wants to play fullback.
    They signed Dallin Zelezniak to play fullback .
    They signed Nick Meaney to play fullback.
    They had signed Corey Thompson to play fullback.
    That’s a lot of players in just a few years to promise the fullback position to.

  2. JAC was signed as a winger, DWZ was signed to play fullback (our options at the time weren’t good for different reasons) but his performances in 2020 meant he couldn’t continue there (2019 he was a revelation). Meaney was signed as a depth option and wasn’t picked to play fullback round 1 of 2019 (he came in later). Thompson is forever ago. We still need a fullback (Allan would get a chance there) but most Bulldogs fans have been calling for Averillo to start there (no Burton for 2021 means he can play in the halves instead) as our previous tried players aren’t good enough to play there and they’d just be stop gaps.
