Hannant signs NRL deal with Bulldogs

The Bulldogs have produced another signing coup by securing Queensland Origin prop Ben Hannant on a three-year deal on Tuesday.

Hannant has been in sensational form for Brisbane this year culminating in his debut Origin selection, but has agreed to return to Sydney to link with the Bulldogs until the end of 2011.

The 23-year-old made his debut at the Sydney Roosters in 2005 before joining the Broncos and winning a premiership with Brisbane in 2006.

The Bulldogs targeted Hannant after the recent departure of quality front rowers Willie Mason, Mark O'Meley and Nate Myles in recent years.

"This is a really significant signing for us, Ben is a high class prop and an important part of our plans for the future," said club chief executive Todd Greenberg.

"We've been really specific in our desire to recruit players who are an asset to the club by the way they carry themselves on and off the field and Ben certainly fits that requirement.

"Signing players of his calibre is a great vote of confidence in the direction the Bulldogs are heading."

Hannant is the third profile player to sign with the Bulldogs following Dragons centre Josh Morris and Cronulla halfback Brett Kimmorley.
