Ex-St Helens boss given big praise as star signs new deal despite NFL links

Today, Canterbury Bulldogs confirmed the big news that star player Matt Burton had signed a massive extension to stay at the club till 2027 amid links to the NFL with sides wanting to appoint him as a kicker in the land of opportunities.

As his signing was announced, Bulldogs Chief Executive Officer Aaron Warburton said it had been exciting to watch Matt’s game progress since joining the Bulldogs last season:

“Matt enjoyed an excellent season in 2022 and one that led to many personal accomplishments. He is a great ambassador for the Bulldogs and has fast become a fan favourite.”

This also came as he praised former Catalans Dragons, St Helens and Bradford Bulls coach Mick Potter for providing stability last year prior to the arrival of new coach Cameron Ciraldo in 2023 from Penrith Panthers as he linked their growing potential with Burton’s new deal:

“Mick [Potter] and the coaching staff did a great job last season and with the addition of Cameron this season, we now have a new but familiar coaching staff that is working extremely hard with all our players in the pre-season. We believe that we have been taking huge strides forward as a Club and this multi-year agreement with Matt means that he will remain to be a big part of the Bulldog’s future.

“Having someone of his ability wanting to be part of what we are building here at the Bulldogs is exciting for everyone involved at the Club.”
