The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have launched the ‘Tails of Belmore’ podcast which will feature interviews with past players and significant figures of this great club.
The podcast will appear throughout the 2021 season and give members as well as fans an opportunity to hear from the players and key figures that have left an impact on this club.
Episode two features player #633 Jamie Feeney, a county boy and a hard working back rower shares his journey in the blue and white, how he first settled into life at Belmore and speaks about season 2004.
Feeney made his first grade debut in 1999 before going on to play 112 first grade games for the club.
Born in Muswellbrook, he arrived at Canterbury in 1997 and was a member of the 1998 reserve grade winning team, before making his NRL debut in round 12 of the 1999 season.
Following his debut, Feeney had a sequence of 70 consecutive NRL games from mid way through 2000 to 2003 before an injury sidelined him.
He was 18th man in the 2004 grand final and at season's end he left the club for the Melbourne Storm, before retiring in 2006.
In 2019, Jamie was awarded Life Membership of the Football Club.
"I would like my teammates to remember me as someone who just worked hard for them and played as hard as I could with the talent I was given. For the supporters, yes wore the headgear with the white stripes, but also worked as hard as I could for the mighty blue and white while I had the jersey on," said Feeney.

The first episode features player #427, a premiership winner and local junior Geoff Robinson, who shares his journey in the blue and white as well as the important role his parents played in his upbringing.
Robinson made his first grade debut in 1977 before going on to play 139 top grade games as well as being a member of the 1980 and 1984 premiership winning teams.
A rugged prop with bushranger looks, the Canterbury junior shared the feeling of winning a premiership and being awarded life membership to the football club.
“An ex-footballer told me there is nothing like winning a grand final and he said I can’t explain it to you. The bloke was so right. You can’t explain what it feels like to win a grand final and to win a grand final when we were all such good mates, including Ted Glossop was so enjoyable,” said Robinson.
“It means a hell of a lot. Being made a life member of a club that I love so much and still love so much. It was something special and it just showed their appreciation for what I loved doing for this club. It doesn’t happen to a lot of players. This club has been a big part of my life. This club is very special,” Robinson added.
