The Bulldogs have had a pleasant boost prior to the NRL Grand Final this weekend.
Teenager Sonny Bill Williams has expressed his desire to re-sign with the club when his current deal runs out.
The talented Kiwi comes off contract at the end of next year, with Bulldogs officials hoping to tie him into a long-term deal.
That plan looked under threat last week when it emerged Williams' manager had rejected an offer from the club and rumours surfaced the NZRU had him lined up for an offer.
However, Sonny Bill Williams says he loves playing for the Bulldogs and has no desire to play the 15-man game.
