Callinan Scores Impressive Hat-trick
Re-live the hat-trick winger Matthew Callinan scored against the Penrith Panthers at Belmore Sports Ground in 1986.
Relentless defence from the premiers provided the back-bone to a 31-6 win over Penrith.
Canterbury posted first points after just six minutes when some quick passing by Michael Hagan, Terry Lamb, Paul Langmack and Peter Mortimer resulted in an overlap for winger Matthew Callinan.
The youngster appreciated the room to move and easily beat two defenders to score out wide.
Winger Callinan bagged his second when he followed through a Chris Mortimer grubber, got a favourable bounce and scored after brother Peter and lock Langmack provided the lead-up.
There was nothing the visitors could do to stop the rampaging Bulldogs and the crowd erupted as Callinan beat a Greg Alexander cover tackle to score in the corner.
The winger completed his hat-trick of tries after sprinting 25 metres and being the link in another brilliant team try.
Canterbury 31 (Callinan 3, Lamb, P. Mortimer tries: Lamb 5 goals, 1 field goal)
Penrith 6 (Howell try: Alexander goal)
