Junior Representative Round 8 Update

The Bulldogs Junior representative sides had mixed results against the Illawarra Steelers in Round 8 of the Junior Rep competitions at Win Stadium Wollongong on Saturday.


The Bulldogs Harold Matthews Cup side (Under 16) defeated Illawarra 28-10 to make it back to back wins. The victory cemented the side in the top eight, and a good tune up for final series in a fortnight.
