Lachlan Lewis will remain with Canterbury Bulldogs until the end of 2021 after signing a contract extension.
The 23-year-old, who is the nephew of Australian Immortal Wally Lewis, made his NRL debut in 2018 and has since played 24 times for the Doggies – including 15 last season.
Bulldogs Chief Executive Andrew Hill told the club website: “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.
“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.”
This news comes on the back of the announcement earlier this week that Dallin Watene-Zelezniak will remain at the club until the end of 2022.
