Hazem El Masri: Thanks for the memories

One of the greats of our game, Hazem El Masri will hang up his boots at the end of this season, capping off an amazing career which has stretched since 1996 and has seen the great man become the NRL’s all time leading point scorer.

A great clubman, Hazem has eclipsed many records at the Bulldogs, including playing the most games and naturally scoring the most tries and goals for the club. Hazem’s great career has also made an impact on the representative scene with him successfully representing City Origin, the NSW Blues, Lebanon in the 2000 Rugby League World Cup, and the highest honour for any player, representing the Australian Kangaroos.
