The Kiwis forward Frank Pritchard has signed a three year deal with National Rugby League club the Canterbury Bulldogs.

Pritchard, who's 26, has been with Penrith for the past eight years.

He's played 141 first grade games since making his debut for Penrith in 2003 and has played 18 Tests for New Zealand.

Bulldogs coach Kevin Moore says Pritchard has size, speed and strength and is a player who has great impact on games.

Moore says having lost several senior players in the past couple of years, he expects Pritchard will take on a leadership role within the side.
