The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have announced the signing of Will Hopoate, for two seasons, through until the end of 2017.
Hopoate joins the Bulldogs from Parramatta, where he spent the past two seasons, playing 38 games, scoring seven tries.
Since making his debut in Round 13 of 2010 for the Sea Eagles, the Manly Cove junior has gone on to play a total of 60 games, scoring 21 tries. The 23-year-old has also represented the NSW VB Blues on five occasions and has worn the KARI City Origin jersey twice.
Bulldogs Chief Executive Raelene Castle is pleased to have a player of Hopoate’s calibre join the club.
“Will is an exciting young player who has already achieved so much in the game,” Castle said.
Canterbury coach Des Hasler said the signing will add strength to his side.
“Will will be a valuable and experienced acquisition for the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs and I look forward to him joining the club,” Hasler added.
