The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs have turned around a 24-6 deficit with less than 20 minutes remaining to secure a draw against the Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval in the Jersey Flegg Cup.
When fullback Logen Dillon scored his third try for the home side in just the 47th minute the Tigers looked certain to run away with the victory, but the Bulldogs weren’t going down without a fight.
The Bulldogs left their comeback late as winger Isaac Williams finished off a 54th-minute try, followed by prop Aidan Manowski in the 65th and a second for lock Kurtis Morrin two minutes later.
Despite scoring less tries than their opposition, Bulldogs centre Eli Clark added the extras on all four attempts compared to the Tigers’ two from five to come away with an unlikely draw.
