In dropping Matt Frawley after just two outings, Bulldogs coach Dean Pay made it clear that he’s not happy with the output of his halves. But if he gets his way, there could be help on the horizon.
According to The Mole on WWOS, the Bulldogs are hoping to sign Raiders half Aidan Sezer – and would like to do so as soon as possible.
According to the report, Pay met with Sezer this week, and is hopeful that Sezer might obtain a release within the next few weeks.
Any possible move would obviously require the Raiders to be willing to release Sezer; though with the recent addition of former Warriors half Ata Hingano, they arguably do have sufficient depth, and it could free up valuable cap space.
Pay is linked to Sezer via Canberra, where he served as an assistant to Ricky Stuart in recent years.
This wouldn’t be the first instance of a new coach pursuing players he’s already familiar with either, with Titans coach Garth Brennan actively recruiting players from his former club, the Panthers.
Sezer has played 121 first grade games for the Raiders and Titans.
