The ladders were close across the top six teams in each competition and while the Bulldogs SG Ball team will play on Sunday the 14th of April in the elimination final, the remaining three junior representative blue and white teams will enjoy a well-deserved week off for placing 1st and 2nd in their respective competitions.

After a close contest with the Steelers, the Bulldogs Tarsha Gale side narrowly missed the minor premiership finishing the regular season in the 2nd position.

Meanwhile, extremely dominant seasons have led the Bulldogs Lisa Fiaola Cup and Harold Matthews Cup squads to Minor Premierships.

While further match details will be circulated shortly, Chairman Adam Driussi expressed his proud congratulations to the strong Bulldogs' Academy seasons over the weekend:

"Congratulations to the Bulldogs Harold Matthews and Lisa Fiaola sides on securing their respective minor premierships today.

"Whilst we are defending premiers in the Harold Matts, only 3 players from last year's grand final winning side played today - most are now playing SG Ball.

"We are committed to our strategy of investing in our pathways programs to build the NRL and NRLW Bulldogs of the future."

Steve Turner's SG Ball squad (4th) will line up at Leichhardt Oval on Sunday, April 14 at 11:30am to face the Eels (5th) for the eliminator final. The match will be broadcast on NSWRL TV.
