The Kurri Kurri Bulldogs have named a strong side for Saturday's Hunter Valley Nines including former premiership player Danny Linnane's son Brodie.
Bulldogs fans will be licking their lips with anticipation as young Linnane lines up for his first senior game at the club where his dad, uncle Steve (captain coach) and their cousin Jason starred in Kurri's 1993-95 premiership hat-trick.
Brodie and under-19 teammate Jack Tamborine will give Bulldogs fans a glimpse of the latest batch of exciting juniors at the club.
Star recruit Frank-Paul Nu'uausala will not play with details of his transfer from Singleton to be finalised.
Bulldogs squad: Barry McGrady, Jared Anderson, Henry Penn, Jono Maloney, Geordie Connelly, Shay Padberg, Brock Gilmour, Ben Wyborn, Brady Hammond, Reid Alchin, Mitch Cullen, Jordy Mitchell, Zeb Dunstan, Ben Edwards, Kyle Ward, Tom Storey, Brodie Linnane, Lewis Hughes and Jack Tamborine.
