Local footy star shines in his NRL co-captain debut

By Kirra Livingstone

BEERWAH Bulldogs junior Reed Mahoney dominated in his co-captain debut for the Canterbury Bulldogs in the pre-season Challenge against the Canberra Raiders on February 12.

The NRL hooker set up the first two tries in the Bulldogs’ 34-18 victory against the Raiders, both within the first 10 minutes of play.

Mahoney played for the full 80 minutes for his new squad in their first pre-season match of the year.

He is among several fresh signings under new head coach Cameron Ciraldo.

Reed left the Parramatta Eels last year, following his first grand final appearance, to join the Bulldogs on a four-year contract.
