Trent Cutler

Trent, the son of Bulldogs great Stan Cutler, got his chance in first grade at fullback in 2005 after some well documented injury troubles at the club.

The promising 23-year-old speedster played in the 32-39 World Club Challenge loss against the Leeds Rhinos.

He managed to play five first grade matches where he put on a brilliant display at the back, saving countless tries through desperate tackling before falling victim to the injury plague himself.


Favoured at fullback, Cutler was once again called upon in 2006 - playing seven games and scoring three tries on the wing. His pace was evident in Round 5 against Canberra when he raced away to score before replicating the four-pointer in Round 22 against the Cowboys - scoring the final try in a 54-14 demolition.

Trent joined the Bulldogs in 2001 as a halfback and was soon moved to fullback to become a regular member of the Flegg team where he played in the Preliminary Final against Parramatta from the bench.

In 2002, he was a regular member of the Flegg team and played in the Preliminary Final against St George Illawarra.

In 2003, Trent started the season in Jersey Flegg and played in the Premiership winning team against Cronulla. He became a regular member of the Premier League team and played in the Preliminary Final against Penrith from the bench.

In 2004, Trent started the season in Premier League but his season was ruined by injury. However, he returned to play in the Qualifying Semi Final against Parramatta in the Jersey Flegg competition and played in the Qualifying Semi Final against the Roosters in Premier League.

In 2005, Trent started the season in Premier League and received the opportunity to play in the NRL against Cronulla when Adam Perry was injured - playing from the bench. Later in the season Trent replaced the injured Luke Patten only to injure his ankle and miss the rest of the season. 

In 2006, Trent was a regular member of the Premier League squad and played in the NRL when Matthew Utai was unavailable.

In season 2007 Trent played 11 first grade games, scoring seven tries. In his 13 Premier League appearances he managed 14 four-pointers.

Against Cronulla on Friday August 31, Trent moved into sixth place on the club's all-time try scorers list following a brace of tries. Cutler now has 95 tries across all three grades - three ahead of Peter Mortimer and seven behind Steven Hughes.

In 2008 Trent joined the Wests Tigers.
