Canterbury Bulldogs

Canterbury BulldogsThe Canterbury Bulldogs arrived on the rugby league scene in 1935 with immediate success. But like the Parramatta Eels, the Bulldogs were a menacing force in the 1980’s, winning four premierships. Canterbury have continued to be a Premiership contender in the new Millennium, winning the NRL grand final in 2004, in the process making up for their Salary Cap scandal in 2002.

After finishing the regular season in seventh place the Bulldogs produced a phenomenal finals series, progressing through all rounds but eventually falling to the premiership winning Rabbitohs in the grand final. Along the way the Bulldogs defeated the Melbourne Storm 28-4 in the elimination final, the Manly Sea Eagles 18-17 in the semi finals and the Penrith Panthers 18-12 in the preliminary finals.

The side eventually lost to the Rabbitohs 30-6 in an epic grand final at ANZ Stadium.
