Ex-Canterbury Bulldogs forward in Super League sights following no conviction charge for drugs possession

Former Canterbury Bulldogs prop Ofahiki Ogden could make the move to Super League after his court case was dismissed.

Ogden was brought before court on a charge for possessing a prohibited drug, with the forward being stopped on the morning of the NRL Grand Final (October 3) by police where he was found to have two satchels of white powder on his person.

The 25-year-old, who has made 45 appearances for the Bulldogs since debuting back in 2018, pleaded guilty to the possession of cocaine but he has no conviction to answer to after he was discharged into the care of a responsible person.

He will also need to continue his treatment for mental health and drug and alcohol issues as well as continue to not take illegal drugs.

Ogden had been a Canterbury player in 2021 and was ready to sign a new deal before the club waived that contract in favour of balancing the salary cap.

However, the New Zealand-born forward has had no interest from other NRL clubs, the Sydney Morning Herald has revealed, and so a move to the northern hemisphere could be exactly what the prop needs to revitalise his flagging career.
