Biography:

The 24-year-old Lautoka-born Marcelo became the club’s sixth acquisition for the 2021 season following the earlier signings of Ben Murdoch-Masila (Warrington), Euan Aitken (St George Illawarra), Kane Evans (Parramatta), Addin Fonua-Blake (Manly Warringah) and Sean O’Sullivan (Brisbane).

He was named the Bulldogs’ 2017 rookie of the year after scoring 12 tries in 19 games, Montoya has gone on to make 54 first-grade appearances. He was used on the wing in 2017 and 2018 but has started in the centres in all but four of his last 21 appearances.

Of Chilean heritage on his father’s side, he began his career against his new club in the first and only NRL match played at Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium in 2017, marking it with a try in the Bulldogs’ 24-12 victory over the Vodafone Warriors.

He had a prolific NYC under-20 career scoring 36 tries in 46 matches from 2014 to 2016.
After making his international debut in 2016, Montoya was in the Fiji side which stunned the Kiwis 4-2 in Wellington in the quarter-finals of the 2017 Rugby League World Cup.
