Steve Turner going to the 'Dogs

The Bulldogs have begun preparing for life without Hazem El Masri by signing Melbourne winger Steve Turner for the next two NRL season.

Turner, who played one State of Origin game for NSW in 2007, will link with the Bulldogs for 2010 and 2011.

The 24-year-old is likely to slot straight into El Masri's wing spot after the NRL's all-time leading pointscorer announced this would be his final year in the game.

Despite his relative youth, Turner brings plenty of experience to the Bulldogs, having played in the last three grand finals with the Storm.

Turner famously turned his back on the last team that attempted to lure him from Melbourne when he reneged on a contract he had signed with Gold Coast in 2006.

The Storm eventually compensated the Titans for Turner's no-go by sending two of their younger squad members to Gold Coast.

But it appears there is no impediment for Turner this time around.

"He is a quality player with great experience for a 24-year-old," Bulldogs coach Kevin Moore said.

"He can play in a variety of key positions and we think he will be another great addition to our club."
