Bulldogs Skipper Michael Ennis crossed in the 22nd minute of the round two clash against the Sharks with a lovely grubber and re-gather.
It was all Bulldogs in the opening 20 minutes but the Sharks very nearly scored against the run of play in the 19th minute. A strong piece of defence from Mitch Brown denied ex-Bulldog winger Jono Wright, who was bundled over the in-goal line.
Bulldogs marched back up the field and in the 22nd minute extended the lead via Michael Ennis. Ennis put through a grubber and the ball bounced kindly for the Bulldogs captain to regather himself. Hodkinson added the extras and it was 12-0.
