Canterbury Bulldogs

Last updated: 2 December, 2016

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

After finishing the regular season in fifth place in 2015, the Bulldogs won their elimination final against the St George Illawarra Dragons thanks to a Josh Reynolds field goal in golden-point before going losing a controversial match against the Sydney Roosters the following week.

2016 was a step-back for the Bulldogs as they finished 7th but were defeated in the first round of the finals by a superior Panthers side.
