Canterbury Bulldogs

Canterbury BulldogsThe Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs arrived on the rugby league scene in 1935 with immediate success. The Bulldogs are well known for their dominance of the 1980s – a decade in which they won four premierships, as well as a very strong run in the early 2000s.

The Bulldogs enjoyed a strong 2016 campaign that had them in the top eight for the entire season. The year finished poorly though, with a string of four losses to finish off the home and away season and an elimination final loss to Penrith leaving Canterbury fans with a somewhat sour taste in their mouths.
