A+ Rating for Bulldogs B-Team

  • A+ Rating for Bulldogs B-Team

The Canterbury Bulldogs are back in the winners circle with a sheer gutsy performance that has put their faltering season back on track.

The Dogs missing no less than 7 first grade players through injury or Origin duty shot out of the blocks early in a near perfect start to the match leading 26 to 0 before the Canberra Raiders woke up and scored 3 quick tries to end the half and trail by a more respectable 10 points given the cirucmstances.

The Raiders held much of the advantage and momentum throughout the second half scoring the equaliser with minutes remaining but a Josh Reynolds clutch field goal iced the game for the deserving Dogs.

1. Sam Perrett -7

A much better showing from the custodian, bringing the ball back with more zest and linking well with his wingers.  His only blemish was getting trounced by Blake Austin who scored a crucial try.

2. Corey Thompson -8

He is the poster boy for consistency, small in stature but the kid has a big heart and deceptively strong, once again showed finishing qualities in scoring a crucial 4 pointer.

3. Tim Lafai - 7

Good to see Lafai back in the starting lineup, his attack is his strength but he also aims up in defence highlighted by a bell ringer on a much bigger Josh Papalii

4. Curtis Rona - 8

The Dogs best all season had another solid game moving one in to centre and again scoring a meat pie.

5. Tyrone Phillips - 8

A really promising debut for Phillips, made some good incisive runs and defused a few sticky situations at the back.

6. Josh Reynolds -10

This is the way to answer the critics and Blues selectors with a 5 star performance, two tries, two assists and the match winning clutch field goal!

7. Moses Mbye -8

Great control, this kid is dynamite albeit the Jack of all Trades player for the Dogs.

8. Aiden Tolman - 8

His workrate to go with his big engine is incredible.

9. Michael Lichaa - 9

He made a couple of errors but his attacking game caused Raiders problems no end.

10. Sam Kasiano - 9

I thought his strong carries and second phase play overshadowed his work off the ball as he came up with some crucial tackles.

11. Frank Pritchard - 8

He was a menace on the edge with some strong carries and always threatened.

12 Tony Williams - 8

He is always a much better player when he plays direct, now needs to keep it consistent

13. Greg Eastwood - 9

He got through a ton of work in the middle and his effort on effort plays may have gone unnotticed but they were a big reason for the victory.

14. Tim Browne - 8

Very strong off the bench today

15. Antonio Kaufusi- 6

Made some strong carries before he got injured

16. Lloyd Perrett -7

Added some starch on defence and good carries on attack

17. Danny Fualalo -6

limited minutes but good involvement
