Canterbury captain Michael Ennis has renewed hope of seeing out his career at the Bulldogs, after the NRL announced an increase in the salary cap for veteran players.

The allowance will jump by up to 50 per cent on a sliding scale over the next two years, and will now apply to players serving six seasons with a club - as opposed to the previous mark of eight.

Ennis shapes as potentially the biggest winner from the changes, given 2014 is his sixth year in blue and white and he's so far held off on inking a new deal.

Canterbury have signed boom Cronulla hooker Michael Lichaa, placing Ennis' future under a cloud.

The 30-year-old rake wants a three-to-four year contract knowing that it could be his last and reports have speculated that the Sharks are sweating on Ennis as their replacement for Lichaa.
