Dillon signs with Wests Tigers until 2020

MapSports Logen Dillon has agreed to terms with the Wests Tigers for the next 2 seasons. Dillon who starrred for the Canterbury Bulldogs SG Ball team in 2018, where he was top 10 in most key statistics; Tries - 1st (14); Line Breaks - 1st (14); Run Metres - 2nd (1743m); Runs - 9th (126); Tackle Breaks - 9th (52); Line Break Assists - 10th (7), as the Bulldogs stormed their way into the SG Ball Grand Final, losing to eventual National 18's Champions, Penrith Panthers.

Dillon, made the move seeking an opportunity to develop his preferred position at fullback where that wasn't going to present itself at his junior club.

"I met with the Dogs and they said my future at the club was on the wing, and although I appreciated that feedback I feel I can take my game to another level if given the entire field to inject myself into. I would have liked to stay, but it wasn't to be." Dillon remarked.

Wests Tigers were estatic to land the sought after player, considering the standout season he had in 2018, "We watched Logen for most the year, through the Schools program and he was outstanding. He throws himself into every game and competes on everything. I think he had 8 games of around 150m and 3 games where he ran for over 200m this year. It's not like he just started doing it either, he has amassed 21 tries in a short junior career of 23 games in Matts and SG Ball. We are very excited to have his talents on board and look forward to working with him to develop his skills and education around the fullback role where we think he has real promise."

Everyone at MapSports wishes Logen well in his new endeavours.
