The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have looked to strengthen what is already shaping up to be an excellent forward pack by signing explosive prop Ofahiki Ogden for a further two years.

The talented 22 year-old will now be at Belmore until the end of the 2021 season.

The former Kiwi Junior who represented New Zealand at U16 and U18 level, was a major part of the Bulldogs winning Intrust Super Premiership side from last year, which culminated in selection for the Intrust Super NSW Residents side.

Ogden, also made his NRL debut for the Bulldogs last season against the Knights in Round 16 and ended up making 9 appearances, which included a first-ever try against the Dragons in Round 24.

Bulldogs Chief Executive Andrew Hill was pleased that the club had been able to extend Ogden's contract:

"Ofahiki has been outstanding during his time at the club and we definitely see him as a player on the rise. He is a hard runner who made an impact every time he came off the bench last season and he will offer us great depth in our forward pack.

Ofa was one of many players who have graduated from the lower grades, joining the likes of Lachlan Lewis, Reimis Smith and Rhyse Martin in our top 30 for season 2019."
