Player movements: Tonga

Former Test centre Willie Tonga has re-signed with the Bulldogs for two years.

Tonga had been expected to test his value on the open market after the NRL's anti-tampering deadline of June 30. But the 22-year-old, who had been linked with a switch to rugby union, says the club's support of him during a long injury lay-off last year helped him make his decision.

Tonga, who has played six Tests for Australia, missed most of 2005 with a knee injury and is currently sidelined with a hamstring problem.
