Canterbury hooker Michael Lichaa looks set to leave the Bulldogs at the end of the season, having played just 11 games for the club this campaign.

The No. 9 played 20 games last season, but was dropped to reserve grade earlier this year, with the Bulldogs also in the market for another hooker.

Newcastle’s Danny Levi could be one who might find himself at Belmore, with the Knights just signing Jayden Brailey from the Sharks on a three-year deal.

Lichaa spoke to NRL.com regarding his future, and believes he’ll continue his NRL career next season at another club.

“From what I understand there are a few teams interested,” Lichaa told NRL.com.

“Hopefully it’s sooner rather than later because otherwise it does my head in. It’s hard when you’re in reserve grade most of the year so you don’t have much of a leg to stand on for other clubs to see.

“Hopefully my manager Sam [Ayoub] can pull through for me. It’s been a tough year. I started in round one and then played a few minutes off the bench but it doesn’t suit me.

“Since I’ve been back in first grade I’ve thought my first two games were good and the last two games it’s been hard to get into any rhythm.”

Lichaa played his debut season at the Sharks, before spending the last five years at Canterbury.
