Hodkinson Kicks Bulldogs to Victory

Bulldogs TV has spoken with half-back Trent Hodkinson about his Golden Point Extra time penalty goal that gave the Bulldogs a 32-30 win over Manly in round 14 last year.

The final 15 minutes saw the Sea-Eagles run in three unanswered tries to level scores at 30-all after the 80 minutes.

One was off the back of a 60m break that ended with a Cherry-Evans try.

The halfback backed it up with a great individual try in the 75th before a Foran chip ricocheted off Reynolds to land in the hands of Steve Matai who scored.

The pressure was on Lyon to convert and the Manly Captain took it on to convert and level the scores.

The Bulldogs received the ball in the first period of golden point and after both sides had a set each it was the blue and whites who earned a penalty after Glenn Stewart pulled down Reynolds.

The home side were then marched 10m after Kieran Foran charged at the referee with a complaint. From 35m and 10m to the right of the uprights Hodkinson lined it up and struck it sweetly to get the win.
