Lachlan Lewis has extended his contract with Canterbury-Bankstown until the end of the 2021 season.

The 23-year-old made his debut in 2018 and has played 24 NRL matches including 15 last season.

Lewis’ kicking skills have seen him average nearly 350 metres per match alongside his excellent passing and defending.

Andrew Hill, Chief Executive at the Bulldogs, was delighted that the club could hold onto Lewis.

“Lachy is a great talent with unlimited potential and he is one of a number of young players that we think will form the basis of our squad going forward,” Hill told the club website.

He has shown great resilience on the field and also a real toughness in defence that has proven to be the basis of all great Bulldogs teams throughout our history.

It is great for the club and our members and fans that Lachy wants to be part of what we are building here and we are all excited about the direction this club is heading.”

  1. I like Lewis and am happy the Dogs have resigned him. He’s an old school defender who knocks the big blokes over by taking out the legs which works for him. Hopefully he continues to improve.

  2. Great news for the Dogs.

    Never been much of a fan of the Doggies.

    However, I like the new approach the club is taking.

    Very gritty back end of the season when they could’ve “kicked rocks” and waited for the end of season trip.

    Lewis looks like a good young talent with the character and player the Dogs can build a team around.

    Wish him all the best.

  3. I think the dogs will make the 8 next season (just) and then in 2021 they should be top 4, they have some great talent coming through and they will attract big name players to join

  4. ihatemanly – Mate I’m hopeful…..always hopeful. They don’t have a lot of depth though hey. I’d like to see them go well for Jackson’s sake too. Watched him slog his guts out every week.

  5. Great news, I love the way Lewis plays! He and Wakeham are our next 10 year plus halves. To’Omaga also extended his contract too! Glad to see all the young guns finally being kept for once instead of them being let go to other clubs and becoming stars there
