The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have lured utility Jeremy Marshall-King to Belmore for season 2018, with the former Tiger opting to further his development at the new club.
Having enjoyed a breakout season in the Intrust Super Premiership NSW in 2016, Marshall-King continued at 2017 when the club failed to make the finals in any competition. The 21-year-old did, however, earn an NRL call-up in the final round of the regular season, experiencing a win over the Warriors at Leichhardt Oval.
With brother Benji Marshall returning to the Tigers in 2018, many expected to see the pair play alongside one another; instead, Marshall-King is looking forward to coming up against him.
"Hopefully we can verse each other, I'd love to play against him," Marshall-King told the Sydney Morning Herald. "There would be a lot of dirtiness, a lot of rubbing his face and that, but that's just how it is with brothers.
"I just want to keep going with my NRL career and play as many games as I can.
"It will be the first time I get a chance to do a full pre-season with an NRL squad and I can't wait to rip in."
The Tigers first face the Bulldogs in Round 12 of the Telstra Premiership, while the 2018 Intrust Super Premiership is set to commence on 10 March 2018.
