What have I done?': Bulldogs recruit Reed Mahoney reveals startling mid-season regret
By Damien McCartney - 1 day ago
New Bulldogs recruit Reed Mahoney has admitted he was having doubts about his off-season move as the Eels marched towards the NRL grand final.
Mahoney rejected a three-year extension with the Eels to pen a four-year, $650,000-a-season contract with the Bulldogs in late-2021.
He will co-captain the side in 2023, alongside star half Matt Burton.
Mahoney said his parents were in tears when he called them with the news he would be leading the side.
"I didn't really know what to say; Mum and dad were in tears and super proud of me."
Burton in early January signed a massive five-year extension to stay at Belmore. He told Nine he was never looking to go elsewhere, despite his player agent David Riolo fielding interest from the
"As soon as they wanted to lock me down, I didn't even bother looking," he said.
"I told my manager, 'this is where I want to be, this is home for me'."
The Bulldogs play the Raiders in the first of two trial matches in Moruya on February 12, and then the Sharks at Belmore the following weekend.
They take on the Sea Eagles at Brookvale Oval in round one.
Who gives a shit. ..This a bulldogs story.
Don't you love how players keep quiet during negotiations while their managers publicise how many clubs they're talking to. Then once they sign the big contract, come out and say 'I was never looking to go elsewhere' LOL $$
Burton is so full of shit .
Just shows the power Gus has
Mahoney is an arrogant turd he was always going to go to the 1st team that kissed his Arse.
