The Bulldogs have signed stood-down Sharks centre Bronson Xerri for the 2024 and 2025 NRL seasons.

Xerri is currently serving a four-year doping ban from the NRL after testing positive to several banned substances, including anabolic steroids, following the 2019 season.

The 22-year-old can officially join the Bulldogs for pre-season training next November when his suspension comes to an end.

« The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs would like to confirm the club has issued a playing contract to Bronson Xerri for the 2024 and 2025 NRL season, » the club said in a statement.

« The club is continuing to work with the NRL Integrity Unit to ensure full compliance is undertaken, before Bronson is able to return to the sport in November 2023.

« The Bulldogs will make no further comment on the issue during this time. »

In 2019, Xerri emerged as one of the game’s best up and coming outside backs after notching 13 tries from 22 appearances in his debut NRL season with the Sharks.
