Due to COVID-19 and the threat of further spread in our community, the National Rugby League has suspended the 2020 NRL Telstra Premiership.
We are facing unprecedented times and all players, coaches and staff at the Bulldogs are grateful for the continual and unwavering support of our Members and fans.
It is fair to say that the game has never faced a bigger challenge than what is ahead of us right now. To help us get through these difficult times we need our club, our community and our family to stick together and show the resilience that the Bulldogs have been renowned for over the years.
As we get more information, we will continue to update this article and communicate with our Members and fans via email and social media.
