Bulldogs to benefit from Addo-Carr energy

Josh Addo-Carr might not have been able to lead the Indigenous All Stars team to victory but according to Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues coach Brad Fittler you couldn’t buy a better team man.

Addo-Carr, 26, was given the honour of captaining the Indigenous team against the Maori All Stars at Accord Stadium last Saturday night but they fell just short 16-10 in a gripping contest.

Fittler still saw enough to suggest that the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs will benefit from the addition of the former Melbourne premiership-winner to their roster this season.

The dashing winger they call ‘Foxx’ has played in four Origin campaigns for the Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues – scoring 10 tries in his 12 games, along with three series wins (2018, 2019, 2021) and the prestigious True Blue Award in 2019 which is determined by the coaching staff.

“One of the things we look for is people who bring really good, positive first impressions,” Fittler said.

“And every single time – not just myself or the players, but anybody – who meets Josh Addo-Carr, he gives a great first impression that he wants to be there and listen to you.

“There’s not many better qualities than that. On the other hand, he’s also a fantastic player, fastest man in the world, and can do wonderful things.

“He’s a really rounded leader at the moment. I’m sure Canterbury will be getting the benefits of that.”
