Sometimes the bounce of the ball just doesn't go your way and on another day Canterbury could well have won this one by a wide margin.

The Bulldogs had three tries disallowed on review when infringements were detected while there was a hint of a forward pass in Clint Gutherson's vital try right before half-time.
