In a game that never reached any great heights and was punctuated with errors, it was the home side Canterbury-Bankstown who did enough in the opening 20 minutes to prevail over a disappointing Penrith outfit 14-4 at ANZ Stadium today.

Having led 12-0 inside the opening 20 minutes, the game failed to evolve as just a lone penalty goal and a Penrith try were the remaining scoring highlights, but the win ensures that the Bulldogs have won both games played this season against the pre-season favourites.

Halves Lachlan Lewis and Josh Cleeland were instrumental in the Bulldogs jumping out to that 12-0 lead before the Bulldogs outfit defended tirelessly to restrict their opponents to just the four points over the remaining 60 minutes.

The home side’s chances of recording a much-needed win weren’t helped with the withdrawal of Richie Kennar while also missing the likes of Marcelo Montoya and Francis Taulau.
