Patten prepared to take pay cut to

Bulldogs fullback Luke Patten says he is prepared to take another pay cut to stay with the National Rugby League club.

The `Dogs players accepted an eight per cent reduction in pay at the end of last year following the salary cap scandal which resulted in them losing 37 competition points and being relegated to the bottom of the NRL table.

Patten says he is confident he will remain at the club and will accept a little less money in order to do so.
