Despite being left out of Canterbury's round one side, Dogs forward Rhyse Martin isn't ready to give up on the club just yet.
According to Martin's manager Sam Ayoub, the 26-year-old has received interest from other clubs around the NRL, although he told Fox Sports their camp won't entertain other offers for “another six or seven rounds (of the season)”.
After an impressive debut season last year, Martin managed to re-sign with the Dogs on a one-year deal, after Canterbury's salary cap squeeze left his Bulldogs career up in the air.
He re-upped with Canterbury, although he's now out of contract at season's end once again, and is free to speak to other clubs.
Coach Dean Pay has overlooked Martin for the second week in a row, after selecting the same 17 that were smashed 40-6 at the hands of the Warriors last weekend.
Ayoub told Fox Sports he was confident Martin would return to the first grade side in no time, which would allow both parties to work on a deal for next season.
