Asotasi signature boosts Souths credibility drive



July 3, 2006 - 5:25PM


South Sydney Rabbitohs have signed Bulldogs prop Roy Asotasi to a five-year deal.

The 24-year-old New Zealand international joins Test teammates Nigel Vagana and David Kidwell and Parramatta forward Dean Widders at the Rabbitohs from 2007.

The newly privatised club says it beat rivals the Sydney Roosters and Wests Tigers to Asotasi's signature.

Rabbitohs Executive Chairman Peter Holmes a Court said the signing of Asotasi, Kidwell, Vangana and Widders was an important step in changing public perceptions of the club.

"It moves us away from the current perception of the club, to a creditable claim to be a top eight contender," he said.

"The club has made some great signings for next season and I can't wait to play on a regular basis with guys like David Kidwell, Nigel Vagana, David Fa'alogo and Joe Galuvao," said Asotasi.

Asotasi, 24, has played 77 first grade matches for the Bulldogs and ten Tests for the Kiwis.

i'm glad he's staying in the nrl and not heading off to england. Next year the rabbitoh's will field nearly a kiwi test forward pack, they should go great guns if they can buy a decent playmaker

I wasn't suprised when he signed for 5 years..as previous articles said thats what souths were offereing him (2.2mill over 5 years)

I knew it was coming..but when i read it on the Bulldogs website my heart still sank :(

It's weird cause now its all official..its all happening..Roy only has 9 games left with us..12 if we make the final.

Good luck to Roy..thanks for all the tries, tackles, hit-ups..EVERYTHING!!

Shux!

The bulldogs will need to boast up there front row. He was in Prices shadow for a while and now it seems he doesnt want it anymore.

I hope Souths do better next year.

I though John Sutton was a player of the future!

With Vagana and co in the team 2007 will be a building block for the once famous club!

What are the Bulldogs going to do now?

will be interesting to see what happens test time now. souths have lots of kiwi players and may not be so keen releasing players now.
