Feeney signs for three more
The Bulldogs have today locked in second rower Jamie Feeney for another three years in the Blue and White. Feeney, 24, has played in every one of the Bulldogs past 62 games and has played a total of 68 first grade games. In 1996 Feeney sent a video from his home in Muswellbrook to recruitment officer Mark Hughes and was invited to trial for the Jersey Flegg side, he went on to score two tries on his first grade debut in 1999 and made his representative debut with NSW Country this season.
“Jamie was somebody we were very keen to keep and I think he was pretty keen to stay. It's a good boost for us, he's only young and there's still room for improvement in his game,” said coach Steve Folkes. “He trains hard and I think his good attitude is a boost to the team.”
The agile second-rower is glad to have negotiations out of the way and to have settled with the Bulldogs.
“I've been here for a long time now, I know the place and it would've been a bit hard to pull up and go somewhere else. My friends are here and I'm keen to be part of a team that should be successful for the next few years,” Feeney said.
