Canterbury-Bankstown captain Andrew Ryan has been kept on the leash at Belmore until 2011 after re-signing with the club for another three years.

Ryan, 29, made his debut for the Bulldogs in round 1 in 2003 and has played 120 first grade games for the Club. He sensationally made his captaining debut in the Bulldogs Grand Final win in 2004.

Andrew Ryan said, "I've very happy to be running around with the Bulldogs for a few more years yet.

"I've been with the Club for six years and it was always my first preference to stay with the Bulldogs for more years to come.

"It's a great club, from the players, to the coaching staff to the administration. We've got a very enthusiastic and committed squad and will be giving the NRL competition a real shake over the next few years."

Bulldogs coach Steve Folkes commented, "Andrew is a true professional on and off the field. He hasn't been a NSW and Australian representative over the past few years for nothing."

Bulldogs CEO Malcolm Noad commented, "Andrew is obviously a very good player, but he brings so much more than his footy skills to the Bulldogs. His commitment to the community in our local area, and to the bush where he grew up, epitomises the values that this club stand for."

Ryan has a bag full of representative honours including four appearances for the Country Origin side (one as captain), 12 games for the NSW State of Origin team and 11 caps for Australia. - Read More, Here
