Grassroots form the heart and soul of our great game. Throughout the 2014 season the Bulldogs in the Community team, headlined by Steve ‘Zap’ Turner, will head out to each of our fifteen Junior Rugby League Clubs.

During this visit Zap will have a chat to some of our youngest pups in the under 8’s division, to find out what it is they truly love about footy. We hope you enjoy it!

Our under 8’s will also be taking centre stage at Bulldogs home games, with four teams being given a once in a lifetime experience, forming the guard of honour, running out with the team, and playing an exhibition match at half time of the NRL. The teams in round 1 are St Johns Eagles, Moorebank Rams, Bankstown Sports and East Hills.
