Bulldogs take chance on Fijian young gun

A Fijian youngster has been given the chance of a rugby league lifetime - a shot at the big time with Canterbury Bankstown.

The Bulldogs have signed promising 22-year-old Penioni Tagituimua to a train and trial contract.

Tagituimua has already played three Tests for Fiji and represented the Silktails in the shortened NSW Cup last year.

Penioni Tagituimua has been given a chance by the Bulldogs.

A halfback/hooker in the Api Koroisau mould, Tagituimua has been training with the Bulldogs in the pre-season and will be given a chance to show his wares in the trials early next year.

The powerfully built utility has already won over his team-mates at the Bulldogs.

"He is a great kid and he never stops smiling," Bulldogs supremo Phil Gould told Wide World of Sports.

"The boys call him 'Peni' for short.

"He has a long way to go but we will see how he goes."
