HIGHLIGHTS: Dogs advance to Finals

The defence of the Canterbury Bulldogs has secured an Intrust Super Premiership NSW finals position that looked incredibly unlikely at the start of the season.

It was a determined and gutsy effort by both sides, with the low score-line a true representation of the defensive prowess shown.

The game went down to the wire, and a controversial offside call in the dying minutes turned out to be the last North Sydney Bears play of 2016.

Canterbury 10 (J McInally, A Elliott tries; C Garvey goal) def North Sydney 6 (A Miski try; S Moceidreke goal)
