The Bulldogs will head back to their spiritual home of Belmore for Indigenous Round, in what promises to be a great day that will include a trip down Memory Lane.
Sunday 26 May (2pm), will be the date when the much vaunted Melbourne Storm arrive to play on a ground that has seen so many Bulldogs triumphs in the past and has given fans so many great memories.
Match Highlights: Storm v Bulldogs
This match has become part of the Bulldogs narrative with many superb matches having taken place at a ground that has been synonymous with history.
This year’s match has special significance as it will feature the return of members of the 1980 and 2004 Premiership winning sides in honour of Steve Folkes who played in the 1980 side and coached the 2004 side. Each team will do a lap of honour of the ground.
