Kimmorley to begin contract talks soon

Canterbury halfback Brett Kimmorley says the time is nearing for him to sit down with the club's bosses and discuss his playing future.

Kimmorley is off contract at the end of this season and has said in the past a decision on whether he would play on for another year would depend on his body and form.

The 33-year-old hasn't given much thought to 2011 but admits he is struggling to produce good form.

"I'm still enjoying playing footy but I'm not playing the best footy," Kimmorley said.

"I suppose it'll be time soon to have a meeting with the club and see if we're both happy or not."

Bulldogs chief executive Todd Greenberg has said the club will start negotiations with Kimmorley before they begin recruiting other players.

Nearly six rounds into the season, the Bulldogs are equal last on the ladder with one win from five games.

Kimmorley said despite the horror picture their win-loss record paints, the Bulldogs are not panicking just yet but concedes they're attitude has been lacking.

"At the moment by having no enthusiasm we're not turning up in the right frame of mind where we've got no chance of winning," he said.

The Bulldogs had a "fairytale" run in the 2009 season winning 18 of their 24 games and just missing out on the minor premiership.

The NSW representative said despite starting this season well below the expectations of fans and themselves, they remained upbeat.

"We have stayed a very tight unit, we're all very close and we all look after each other very well," Kimmorley said.

"We understand there's going to be some hard times."
