Holdsworth in line to fill
Anasta's boots


Bulldogs coach Steve Folkes says recruit Daniel Holdsworth will get first crack at filling the club's vacant number six jumper next season, but has warned fans not to expect a second coming of Braith Anasta.

The former St George Illawarra lower grader will play five-eighth in the Bulldogs two trial games as the club begins its search for a new pivot following the off-season departure of Anasta to the Sydney Roosters.

Holdsworth was limited to five top grade games at the Dragons due to the presence of Test five-eighth Trent Barrett at the club.
