Biography Made a name for himself when he was forced to captain the Bulldogs to Grand Final glory in 2004 after regular skipper Steve Price was ruled out due to injury.

Ryan was a very enthusiastic and busy forward who liked to heavily involve himself around the ruck and in defence. He backed up superbly and on many occasions found himself crossing the line for a four pointer.

Andrew played 73 games for Parramatta as a lock forward. He played in the Grand Final against Newcastle in 2001 and played for NSW in 2001.

In 2003, Andrew joined the Bulldogs to become a regular member of the NRL team. He played ten games for NSW from 2001 to 2007 and played 11 Tests for Australia from 2004 to 2007.
