Antonio Kaufusi signs with Canterbury Bulldogs

Former London and Huddersfield forward Antonio Kaufusi has signed a two-year deal with NRL giants Canterbury Bulldogs.

The 29-year-old, who has represented Australia, Tonga and Queensland, failed to make an impact with the Giants in 2014 and was at one point sent on a month-long loan to Bradford.

With well over 200 games at elite level under his belt, though, he brings a wealth of experience to any side.

Bulldogs boss Des Hasler said: “Antonio is an experienced player and he will add some depth to our forward pack for next season.”

Kaufusi added: “The NRL is the toughest game. It’s great to be back and to try test myself again.

“They have got a great pack here at the dogs – I want to get in there and put my front foot forward.”
