South Sydney Rabbitohs outside back Braidon Burns has put pen to paper on a two-year deal with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs from 2022 onwards.
It’s been a rocky road for the Dubbo junior, after a serious knee injury saw him miss out on the majority of the 2020 season.
Despite the setback, Burns worked tirelessly at his craft and was back in first grade this year playing eight games as well as adding two tries, three try assists and four linebreak’s to his name.

His best individual performance of 2021 came in Round 22 against the Gold Coast Titans where he scored two tries, two linebreak’s, six tackle busts and ran for 118 metres in a resounding 36-6 victory for the eventual Grand Finalists.
Burns also featured in the The Knock-On Effect NSW Cup competition on three separate occasions this year, scoring two tries.
The Bulldogs have been busy recruiting for 2022 adding Matt Burton, Josh Addo-Carr, Tevita Pangai Junior, Matt Dufty, Brent Naden and Paul Vaughn to Trent Barrett’s roster.
