A brilliant defensive display from Canterbury, led by inspirational skipper Josh Jackson, has earned a thrilling 12-6 win over the Eels at Bankwest Stadium.
The victory over arch-rivals the Eels made it four straight wins for the proud Belmore club and keeps the Dogs in the hunt for a finals spot.
Since round 15, Dean Pay’s men have won six of their eight matches with all of those wins coming against sides who were in the top eight at the time.
Following the match, Bulldogs Members and fans took to social media to show how proud of their team they were after the win over the Eels.
The best compliment I can give tonight is to say it was a typical bulldogs performance. We’ve got our dogs back! #ProudToBeABulldog— Pete (@pjdog11) August 22, 2019
Very small chance of making the 8 but still so proud of the boys last few months! #proudtobeabulldog— Joshüa (@JoshTungcab_) August 22, 2019
I bloody love what Dean Pay has done with a group that looked absolutely lost earlier this season. DWZ's inclusion has been huge, but the defence has turned around and halves executing much better. Another great win for one of the form teams in the competition #proudtobeabulldog— Simon Masterton (@OiSimmo) August 22, 2019
The Dogs of War are back!!! So #proudtobeabulldog after @NRL_Bulldogs performance #nrleelsbulldogs. Never gave up, kept coming in defence and showed true heart late in the game to hold on. Keep showing everyone who's boss Deano & the boys! https://t.co/jMhmHpmjgu— Trevor Tye (@trevorjct) August 22, 2019

Johns: It's old-fashioned rugby league
Yet another Stella performance from the mighty bulldogs, unfortunately I think the boys have left it a little late this season, but man does it feel good to be in the winners circle 4 weeks in a row #proudtobeabulldog #4inarow— Dylon Maher (@DylonMaher1) August 22, 2019

Wow wow wow! That’s the best win of the season by any team. Yes, I’m biased but who cares. There’s a lot of teams happy Dogs aren’t in the finals. #NRLEelsBulldogs #proudtobeabulldog #proudtobeabulldog #proudtobeabulldog— Cameron Bell (@CameronBell) August 22, 2019
