The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have secured the services of NSW State of Origin representative Michael Ennis long-term, with the hooker agreeing to a new three year contract extension with the club .
The new contract takes Ennis through to the end of the 2014 NRL season and comes as a huge boost for the club just two weeks out from its 2011 season opener against the Wests Tigers, to be played on Monday 14 March at ANZ Stadium.
Ennis has come on in leaps and bounds since joining the Bulldogs prior to the start of the 2009 season, earning the first of his four State of Origin appearances that year while also representing Country Origin (2009-10), the Prime Minister’s XIII (2010) and the NRL All Stars (2011).
He says that the decision to re-commit to the Bulldogs was the right one for a number of reasons.
Bulldogs head coach Kevin Moore says as one of the squad’s senior players, securing Ennis’ services for three more years gives the Bulldogs added stability and direction.
