Kimmorley to be a Bulldog from 2009

The Bulldogs have confirmed the signing of Cronulla halfback Brett Kimmorley to a two-year deal from 2009.

In one of the NRL's worst kept secrets, the former Test No.7 will be cut loose by the Sharks for the final two years of his current deal.

The move is expected to open the way for Wigan star Trent Barrett to link with Cronulla once his request for a release from the English Super League club is finalised.

The Bulldogs will hope Kimmorley can fill a void left by the departure of Brent Sherwin in the off-season.

"We've lacked an experienced halfback for a couple of years now and Brett provides the answer," Bulldogs chief executive Todd Greenberg said in a statement.

"He has a successful track record at the highest levels of rugby league and his leadership will be a real asset for the Bulldogs."

Incoming coach Kevin Moore said Kimmorley was a key signing.

"He's exactly the style of person we want at our club," Moore said.

"We feel he has a lot to offer in the way he conducts himself both on and off the field.

"I think he'll be a great role model and will fit in well in the blue and white.

"His training ethic is second to none, he's tough and a real competitor."
