Second Bulldog signs with Storm

Bulldogs forward Jamie Feeney will join teammate Dennis Scott in Melbourne next year after signing a three-year deal with the Storm today.

Melbourne?s third signing in less than a week - Scott, along with Manly prop Ian Donnelly committed to the Storm last Friday ? has further strengthened its forward stocks ahead of the 2005 season.

Storm coach Craig Bellamy sees 26-year-old Feeney as a well-rounded player that will compliment Melbourne?s list next season.

?Jamie is a talented player, he?s not a big forward but he?s quick, he?s got good leg speed and basically he?s got good skills, so he?s going to be a handy player for us,? Bellamy said.

?He?s been around for a while and I?ve seen him play quite a bit of footy, he?s a pretty impressive player.?

One of the NRL?s finest utilities, Feeney is a former Country Origin representative who has played over 100 first-grade matches since debuting for the Bulldogs in 1999.

?Obviously we?re losing a bit of experience here next year and like Dennis Scott, he?s a pretty experienced player,? Bellamy added.

?In the last 12 months or so he?s been on the bench so he?s keen to go to a club where he can get more time and while we can?t guarantee that to him, we?ll certainly give him that opportunity.?
